Xamarin Events in South Africa

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.

We meet the second-last Wednesday every month:
