My talk from Xamarin Evolve 2016 is now up on YouTube!

Contextual awareness is a fast-growing trend in mobile development. In this session, Jim will take you through a quick overview of beacon technology, including Apple's iBeacons and Google's Eddystone, before diving into some code. We'll even build a simple app live on stage to demonstrate how you can detect and wake up beacons, as well as detect user proximity to beacons.
