    That’s right everyone, I am back with yet another post about Xamarin in Action. It has only been a few days since I released the last post but something big has happened in that time. Manning Publications, the publisher of the book have seen my posts and decided to share them on Twitter, wow!

  4. Xamarin in Action — Chapters 2 + 3

    I intended to try and space out the posts to one a week or something to avoid bombarding you with too many posts and giving me breathing room to take on the code. But a mixture of excitement, enjoyment of the book and the first chapter being more of a casual introduction, has led me to start writing this, the day after the last one!

    When it comes to new features in Xamarin, especially Xamarin.Forms I can be a bit like an excited puppy. Xamarin gets me so excited!

    So The Xamarin Show released a new Snack Pack Edition yesterday. In it, James does a quick introduction to the new Xamarin Android Device Manager teased recently in the Xamarin Podcast and online with the long awaited “Instant Boot” feature. Anyone that has tried to use Android emulators knows how slow they can be, especially if you have an AMD CPU and cannot benefit from HAXM Acceleration, so this is something the community has wanted for a long time.
