I have created a better page for these events. Although the content of this new page is almost identical to this page, It looks way better. Be sure to check it out here and share to with your South African family/friends/colleagues/developers.
Every month, three cities across South Africa have User Groups for anyone interested in Xamarin. These events range from hands-on development to interesting talks related to Xamarin development.
There are user group meetups in 3 major cities:
Cape Town Xamarin User Group
As I stay in Cape Town, I always attend this User Group. We often discuss a wide variety of Xamarin-related topics.
