I am Ed Snider — a developer, speaker, author, and Xamarin MVP based in the Washington D.C. / Northern Virginia area. I have a passion for mobile design and development and regularly speak about Xamarin and Windows app development throughout the local developer community in the D.C./Maryland/Virginia area. I also run the D.C. Mobile .NET Developers Group (@dcmobiledev) which focuses on bringing local developers together to talk and learn about mobile development with .NET and Xamarin.

I work at InfernoRed Technology (@infernoredtech). At InfernoRed I am primarily focused on working with clients and partners to build awesome mobile solutions on the Windows, iOS and Android platforms.

I’ve been coding for over half my life (since I was 15). I got my first job in 1999 working at a Piedmont Press and Graphics maintaining the local newspaper’s website. For the first few years of my career I worked with Cold Fusion to develop dynamic web applications and e-commerce solutions. I started working with the .NET framework right when .NET 2.0 was coming out and have pretty much been doing .NET development ever since – starting with WinForms and ASP.NET and then getting into SharePoint solution development and now of course mobile apps.

I wrote a book about developing mobile apps with Xamarin.Forms. The book is titled “Mastering Xamarin.Forms” and is available on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/1785287192.
