If you are in the Seattle area, come by the Microsoft campus February 13 at 7pm for a talk on creating F# iOS apps using Xamarin Studio on Mac. Details on the group’s meetup page, here: http://www.meetup.com/FSharpSeattle/events/159071122/.
For more information regarding F# on iOS, see http://fsharp.org/use/ios/.

• A brief overview of using Xamarin Studio on a Mac for development
• Interop between normal Objective-C objects and Mono objects
• What to do in C# (instead of F#), and why
• Using F# MailboxProcessors to build a reactive UI
• Mixing Objective-C, C, C++ and F# in a project
