Happy New Year folks!!! It’s awesome to welcome the new year with a user group meet 🙂 So, we had organized a Xamarin based event with some interesting topics at Xhackers meetup.


I delivered a session at the event and I had planned it in a such a way to give overview of the below topics

  1. What is Continuous Integration (CI) ?
  2. What is Continuous Deployment (CD) ?
  3. What is DevOps ?
  4. What is Mobile DevOps ?
  5. Introduction to Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS)
  6. Introduction to HockeyApp
  7. Demo of creating CI build definition using Xamarin.Android & Xamarin.iOS build templates in VSTS
  8. Demo of creating CD release definition for Xamarin.Android & Xamarin.iOS apps using VSTS and deploying the apk/ipa to HockeyApp

The presentation used in the session is available at Xhackers Jan Meetup Slide deck

It was a super interactive session with around 30+ audience. Off with a great start for 2017, I am looking forward for more active contributions to the technical community in this new year.
