    So a couple of months ago, I received an amazing message from Jim Bennett, author of Xamarin in Action and Senior Cloud Developer Advocate at Microsoft. The team is able to give tickets to the big annual Microsoft Developer conference called Build, this year held in Seattle, to people who contribute to the community and may not otherwise be able to make it; and I was the receiver of one of these tickets!

  3. Xamarin In Action - Blog Post Series Summary

    So as you may or may not know, I recently completed a front -> back read through and review series on Xamarin in Action by Jim Bennett (now Senior Cloud Developer Advocate at Microsoft).

    As part of the series, I wrote posts covering one or a group of chapters, sharing my experiences of coding along and how I found the content to understand. Overall Grade - A*!

  4. Xamarin in Action - Chapter 15 - App Center

    Woah we are on the penultimate chapter, would you believe it? Time flies when you are having fun! This chapter is all about Visual Studio App Center which is like a "Mission Control for apps" as Jim puts it. It's a place where you can achieve multiple functions in one place.

    Welcome back! Today we will go ahead and look at Chapter 14 which covers UI testing. In the last chapter we learned how to deploy to our local devices but now we need to check the user interactions and ensure the app performs as expected when interacted with including correct bindings and appropriate components.

    We are here! Part 3 of the book. This is all about getting you from a working app to the store. Obviously having a working application is a good start but that is not everything to get it app store ready.

    Time to take a bite from the other mobile APPle now, excuse the pun! So in the last post we created the views for both example apps on Android. This time we will be doing the same but for iOS.
