Last month I went to Xamarin Evolve. A lot of great new stuff was announced like workbooks, the iOS simulator for windows, the Xamarin.Forms previewer,… But besides all those big announcements there were a lot of small takeaways that make your life as a developer easier. One of those small tips is the SynchronizationContext.
Over the next few months, Xamarin Insights will merge with HockeyApp.
I’m glad to announce that today I renewed my Xamarin Mobile Developer Certificate.
Azure table storage only supports some types. You can find the list here. Complex types are not supported (maybe later they will be, but today it’s not the case). I needed to store some data that is more complex than just a string. As I didn’t need to search on the objects themselves it was ok to store them as Json.
A while ago a colleague asked me how to test a REST API when you need a token to use the API. He just wanted to verify some data and didn’t want to write any code. You’ll need to do some configuration, but once it’s setup the REST calls become painless.
