September 30th - ZAP and Xam!

It's September! The nights are shorter and the days are warmer, so what better way to celebrate spring's arrival in true coder style by staying indoors, having some fun with others in the community and maybe even learning something to take your awesomeness level to 11!

For you this month we're going to have a Xamarin and MVC Mashup talk and a talk on the open source security tool, ZAP.

.NET MVC and Xamarin.Forms Mashups - Michael Ridland (@ridooz)
The best of all worlds - native, hybrid and offline. Sharing ASP.NET MVC Razor Views and Business Logic with Xamarin.Forms! It even works offline...

Zap yourself with the Zed Attack Proxy! - Paul Theriault, Mozilla  (@creativemisuse)

Paul will be starting with a brief, short skim over the basics (just in case) and then jumping into the juicy stuff and showing you:
- Elite haxoring techniques with Zap
- Integrating Zap into continuous integration

We're expecting a full house given the levels of interest people have in both Xamarin and security, so let us know you're coming by booking a ticket. We'll even make sure there's a slice of pizza and a beer for you when you arrive :-)
