I feel (Xamarin) Love

by | 17/07/2019 | .NET

Thursday I live-streamed a part of Xamarin Dev Summit in Houston. Honestly, I submitted a proposal for some talks at this event. I wasn’t chosen. Pity but proposal declines are a part of speaker’s life. You have to deal with it.

I saw the Keynote and was very impressed about Hot Reload for Xamarin.Forms, a really cool feature that will be in private preview very soon. So I hope to be in the group of lucky ones for the preview. More official Microsoft communication here: https://devblogs.microsoft.com/xamarin/xaml-hot-reload/.

I believe as a developer of accessible apps, where UI is very important this will be a major dev improvement for me. Testing as much little tweaks like back and foreground colors, sizes and font sizes of objects will be a very fluent job.

Since the keynote I felt big love, Xamarin Love. When I heard about the latest updates, I updated my Visual Studio 2019, some Android SDK’s and upgraded to the latest Xamarin.Forms 4.1.0.x and Xamarin Essentials 1.2.0. When all updates were ready (and this didn’t took much time!) I’ve started debugging my current project (DDGuard) and everything did run smoothly! This was like MAGIC!
