One Mac. Small Xamarin team. How to. Part 2

One Mac. Small Xamarin team. How to. Part 2

Welcome in this long awaited part 2 of the serie “One Mac. Small Xamarin team. How to.”. In part 1, we saw what possibilities in terms of hardware are available when developing for iOS with Xamarin (if you missed it, it’s still time to read it). Today, I will explain how to leverage a single Mac for a small team, and how to enable simultaneous debugging between developers. This post is applicable to every Mac machines. A good candidate for such a setup…

Call an Azure AD protected API in Xamarin/UWP apps

When we talk about mobile apps, a web API is generally hiding in the background, doing most of the work like connecting to a database, verifying authorization, computing data, and so on.

Xamarin – Using SQLite.NET Async with PCL

Xamarin – Using SQLite.NET Async with PCL

With Xamarin, it is now easier than ever to share most of the logic between your apps. Most today’s apps use a lot of data, so deciding how to store them locally can prove a challenge. SQLite provides a great way to store and query those easily and does support Xamarin. In the original post, we’ll see how to setup SQLite in a portable project (PCL) shared by two Xamarin projects (Android, iOS) and a UWP project in Visual Studio….
