Our traditional December meeting format continues with Lightning Talks and a Potluck Dinner. 

Lightning talks are 5-minute presentations given by anyone attending until time runs out.  This is your chance to show off your favorite code trick, productivity tool feature, open source project, technology, or anything else as long as you can do it within 5 minutes. 

Since potlucks can sometimes be anything but lucky, TRINUG organizers will provide a main dish, soft drinks, plates, and utensils.  Attendees are encouraged to bring your favorite side dish or dessert.

Fork this repo and submit a pull request with your lightning talk.

Meeting Agenda:

5:30-6:00 - Welcome/Food 
6:00-6:15 - Announcements 
6:15-8:00 - Lightning Talks!

Xamarin makes it possible for .NET developers to build native mobile apps for iOS, Android and Windows with C# (and F#)! In this talk Xamarin MVP Ed Snider will show how you can leverage your .NET skills and tools (like Visual Studio) to tap into the wonderful world of native mobile development. Learn how Xamarin works, how to use it, and how it can be combined with common patterns and practices to share code across multiple platforms. We will also look at the Xamarin.Forms framework which allows you to build native mobile apps with shared UI code using C# and XAML.
