Xamarin Conference

Nextbridge was part of the comprehensive conference, to equip software developers with in-demand Xamarin-related skills — a hybrid open-source application framework for .NET. The workshop focused on soft skills as well as technical skills, which was attended by several of the technical developers and software engineers who wanted to gain practical knowledge of certain technical skills. Began with a session on essential soft skills for new developers, the conference later delved into technical topics like enterprise architectures with Xamarin Forums and on exploring Model-View-View Model (MVVM) with Prism. The dignified speaker on MVP/Xamarin from California was Dan Siegel who is the MVP/Xamarin Microsoft & Azure Consultant at San Diego.
