James Chambers
ASP.NET Web Hooks

Systems are connected now, you can't escape that. The reality is that when "some important event" occurs in your system, you're going to have at least some other system that will need to know about it. Web hooks makes this possible in a way that allows third party applications to self-serve the sign up process using the same technique provided by a host of applications out there from GitHub to Azure and facilitating integration with services like IFTTT and Zapier. Come see what makes this all tick and work through a sample application with all the moving parts.

James Chambers was weaned onto a Commodore VIC-20 and has been programming pretty much every day since. Today, he spends his spare time at user groups, local schools and community events helping as he can. While he codes in several languages on both the server and client, don't let the glasses fool you; he's no hipster. You can catch up with his latest musings on Twitter @CanadianJames, at his blog jameschambers.com, or twice weekly on the ASP.NET Monsters on Channel 9.

Georgian Grigore
Go Mobile with Xamarin

Anything you want to accomplish on iOS, Android, or Windows Mobile is possible with Xamarin, while (re)using your C# and Visual Studio skils! Xamarin provides Native UI, native API access, and native performance. This means full access to each platform and hardware capabilities while developers are using a single code base. And best of all – after the merge with Microsoft, now Xamarin is free![[br]][[br]]In this session we’ll be focusing in particular on Xamarin.Forms. XF are the best for data entry applications – which are the cornerstone of any business application. Come see how easy is to build cross-platform apps with maximized code sharing!

Georgian is a tenured full stack developer and architect, using primarily Microsoft technologies by day, but also dabbing into open source by night. He has more than a decade of experience building business applications, mainly in the healthcare and e-commerce areas. In his free time he’s interested in mobile, cloud and web development, working on several apps and sites, backed up by azure web services. He can be contacted at http://about.georgiangrigore.com.
