The Call for Speakers for the Xamarin Developer Summit are now OPEN

The Xamarin Developer Summit is a developer focused event for those working in the Cross Platform and Mobile arenas. This two day event will be focused on speaking to the attendees on Day 1 and speaking with the attendees on Day 2. While we will still have regular sessions on Day 2, we are looking to largely focus Day 2 around Speaker Panels, Workshops and Hackathons. 

Conferences are full of brilliant speakers who in a short period of time show something as possible, while often leaving attendees with a feeling of "Great, now what???". It is our hope to address this issue by ensuring that you have both talks and Workshops or Hackathons prepared to actively engage with attendees and help them walk through what may be an entirely new concept for them.

Topics To Consider

The following are some of the topics we absolutely have on our list of things we would like to see sessions on. If there is another topic that you feel would be relevant do not hesitate to submit as it may just be a great idea we haven't thought of yet.

  • Mobile DevOps
  • Best Practices
  • MVVM Development
  • Linking / Releases
  • Working with native iOS / Android views
  • Machine Learning
  • Augmented Reality
  • General Development Practices
  • Logging / Analytics / Crashes
  • IoT & Mobile
  • Bluetooth
  • Custom Renderers and Platform Effects
  • Background Tasks
  • Tizen
  • Wearables
  • Push Notifications
  • Developer Tools
  • Cloud Integrations (Azure, AWS, IBM, etc)
  • Cross Platform Library Authoring
  • Unit Testing
  • UI Testing

Diversity Pledge

The Xamarin Developer Summit team is committed to making every effort to including a diverse crowd. We cannot do this without the help of our speakers and sponsors. We ask that anyone who summits papers help us by letting your network of followers know about the Xamarin Developer Summit, reach into your local communities and encourage women, students, and minorities to join us for what we hope to be the most fun event you'll be at all year. We are further pledging to make a ticket available for scholarship cases for every 10 regular tickets sold, and for each speaker who is able to cover their own costs of attending the event. We additionally welcome any speakers or sponsors who would like to help us cover some or all of the travel and lodging expenses for extreme financial hardship cases.
