Xamarin DevDays Santo Domingo Hands On Lab Checklist

Here at Megsoft we have been tasked with organizing Xamarin DevDays in Santo Domingo, D.R. For us it’s a pleasure since Xamarin is our bread and butter each day :).

In the afternoon we will have Hands On Labs where we will guide participants through creating a Xamarin based solution.
