About

Brandon Minnick is visiting us on November 29th! We threw a couple of ingredients (buzz words like Xamarin, Azure API apps, Cosmos DB, async/await, ...) at him and he's turning them into an awesome cocktail!

Brandon will talk about Azure API apps:

  • Intro to Azure API apps
  • What is an API
  • How to create APIs and deploy them to Azure
  • How to connect via a Xamarin app

Next, he'll discuss Comos DB:

  • Intro to Cosmos DB
  • What is Cosmos DB
  • How to create a Cosmos DB backend in Azure
  • How to connect to Cosmos via a Xamarin app

This is going to be an awesome session, showing how to combine some cool and cutting edge cloud technologies in Azure with the best mobile development platform: Xamarin!

About Brandon Minnick

Mobile app developer, Florida Gator, World Traveler!
I love mobile and have been creating iOS, Android and UWP Apps since joining Xamarin in 2015!
My journey to becoming a mobile app developer started with a Computer Hardware Engineering degree from the University of Florida (Go Gators!). This is when I fell in love with writing code, albeit I was designing microprocessors not mobile apps, yet!
My career continued to evolve, designing end-to-end satellite network architectures for Harris Corporation. It was during this period that my passions realigned as I took weekend classes and completed the Professional MBA Program at University of Florida. Go Gators, again!
I saw mobile becoming the wave of the future, so I moved across the country to join Xamarin and be a part of the mobile revolution!
My wife, Kim, and I love to travel any chance we get! We like to balance between relaxing on sunny beaches and hiking/exploring exciting places.
In my free time I love running, swimming, water polo and snow skiing.
