To be honest, I have never believed that I will write about developing Mac applications with C#. Well, I am more or less hardcore C# & .NET developer so this post is (I guess) a bit out-of-my-course. Not so long ago, .NET developers were limited to develop applications strictly for Windows environment. But with .NET […]
.NET Core is here to stay. It’s open source, super fast and super awesome. With .NET Core and cross platform mantra, a .NET renaissance has begun! Microsoft again found just the right way how to regain DEVELOPERS back with hot, interesting and modern development platform. Together with cross-platform development tools, it opens so many interesting voyages for us – .NET developers.
Android ecosystem has huge numbers of libraries which can be used in Android-based applications. Technically, these libraries are files with .jar or .aar extensions. When developing Android application with Java these libraries can be directly included/linked in the application and used. Of course, re-usage of these java-based libraries in Xamarin Forms is possible, but the […]
In this blog post I will not only stick to technical side of the problem, but I will also put some thoughts on how sometimes in development everything goes wrong. And how to deal with the situation, till you get the solution. iOS13 was released on September 19th. Quickly after release, on one of the […]
Task-based Asynchronous Pattern (TAP) was introduced in .NET Framework 4 and since then, it is the recommended approach to asynchronous programming in .NET.
Event-based Asynchronous Pattern (EAP) is still in use, especially at legacy systems, but for new development is not recommended anymore.
In this post I will show how to wrap EAP into TAP and use more modern approach.
On Android, when pairing with Bluetooth device is in progress, popup form requesting pin is displayed. Everything is ok, except awkward message “Try 000 or 1234”. For some users this is confusing, because they simply type in what pairing popup is suggesting. Of course, pairing fails due to wrong pin entered. Let’s take a look how I fixed this issue.
As of this writing, C# 8 is still in Preview 5, so It’s not 100% clear if all listed features will end up in final release. C# 8 will be probably released at .NET Conf , September 23 — 25, 2019. Nevertheless, let’s take a look at new features of C# 8. List of reported […]
A push notification is a message that pops up on a mobile device. Push notifications are messages send via application to directly address the end users. In this blog post, I will show how to use App Center Push service and show how to implement push notifications in Xamarin Forms. For now, I will focus […]
The Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) enables developers to run a Linux system directly on Windows. This is done without the overhead of a traditional virtual machines. WSL is primarily intended for developers. This allows developers to use Bash, common Linux tools and many Linux-first tools and frameworks (Ruby, Python, etc.) on Windows. In this […]
