We will meet regularly to explore the use of .NET for building mobile to web applications or just for fun of coding. Our goal is to create a great social group in the London and surrounding area where everyone can come share and learn from each other. We will be learning and coding with a focus on web and multi-platform mobile development, including MonoTouch, Mono for Android, Windows Phone, Windows 8 and ASP.NET.
