In this blog post I will show how to remotely debug simple .NET Core console application running on Raspberry Pi and Ubuntu Linux. The purpose of this blog post is not to debug complex application, but to show step by step procedure how to perform remote debugging of .NET Core application. In other words, I […]
In general, I have never had big problems with localization and Xamarin Forms. Xamarin localization is straightforward to implement and it works. But, on one of my latest projects, my app was targeting also Brazilian market. I had problems with iOS and Brazilian language (pt-BR or in Apple context pt_BR). After a quick investigation, I […]

Xamarin Forms development stack is awesome framework for developing cross-platform mobile applications. On one hand, being Xamarin developer has many benefits over other mobile development stacks. But, on the other hand, developing cross-platform application can be frustrating, because I need to know internals and tricks for all targeting platforms. One of the tasks every developer […]
Few days ago I had strange situation with NuGet restore on one of my Azure DevOps build pipelines. When I upgraded my .NET class libraries from .NET Standard 1.6 to 2.0 my build failed. My local build in Visual Studio or with bare-metal msbuild worked just fine. Only on my Azure DevOps build pipeline I […]
.NET Core introduced one very useful deployment option: self-contained application deployment. This means that deployment package contains all the required artifacts to run the application. I can simply copy deploy output to target machine and run it. No runtime prerequisites needed as it is the case with .NET Framework. Furthermore, .NET Core 3.0 introduced self-contained […]
The Android App Bundle (AAB) is Android’s new, official publishing format. It offers a more efficient way to build and release your apps. AAB enables easier deliver of a great experience in a smaller app size, which can improve installation process.
In this blog post I will show how to install AAB-based Android application onto locally connected device.
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 […]
