Microsoft Azure and Xamarin Workshop​


On Friday March 24th, the Department of Computer Science held a half-day workshop on Microsoft Azure and Xamarin at the Main Campus.

The workshop was a hands-on lab initiation where participants from different majors attended sessions and then used what they had learned from the speaker​. 

Dr. Amine Bitar, Department Chairperson, opened the workshop by welcoming Mr. Jad El Hajj at Balamand and highlighting the main goal of the workshop. 

Then, Mr. El Hajj, DX Project Coordinator at Microsoft, proceeded with an introduction on Azure. He then helped participants with registration and demonstrated how they can use Azure portals to start creating their own services, deploying their websites from any machine, through FTP connection to Azure. 

In the second part, Mr. El Hajj held a session on Microsoft Xamarin through which participants built native cross-platform applications across IOS, Android, and Windows. 
The Department of Computer Science has had active participation in Microsoft’s programs including Microsoft Student Partners, Imagine Cup Local finalists, event participations like TechDays 10, and now hosting hands-on Workshops.
