28,000 people. That could very easily be the entire population of a small town. Microsoft's Ignite conference in Orlando this Fall quite casually attracted 28K attendees - let's just say it was a huge event. Not many venues can handle the scale of Ignite - no big deal for Orange County Convention Center. IT professionals and developers from around the world came down to Ignite to learn the latest technologies - all passionate and invested in the Microsoft ecosystem. Content presented at Ignite did not disappoint - attendees got to network directly with Microsoft engineers/PMs and get first hand look at innovations that will shape the Microsoft technology space. It was a good busy week.
We're big fans of Xamarin and continue our engineering efforts behind Telerik UI for Xamarin - a set of complex yet highly performant UI controls for all your Xamarin apps. It is no surprise that at Ignite, we hung out a lot with Xamarin engineers, PMs and University trainers - birds of a feather. Here are some short informal videos of our conversations with folks from Microsoft on Xamarin, client development strategies and how the cloud plays a role in modern apps. Hope you enjoy!
