Localization is not a new task and there is a lot of documents and blog posts about it, but on my experience there is not a unique and comprehensive source about all the aspect related to strings and images localization on all the platforms covered by Xamarin.
In this post I’ll try to illustrate how did I solved it.

On my previous post, I’ve showed how to use the Dashboard app to install the latest Release version, but to explore the latest features (like the new remote display) or the latest version of Raspberry Pi (like the Raspberry Pi 3) you’ll need to install the Insider Preview version.

If you’d like to have a nice 7” touch display connected to your Raspberry Pi 2, you can easily pick one from Amazon. Read the full story to get all the details.

I cannot put it simpler than that: you can install Xamarin for Visual Studio 2015 directly from Visual Studio itself.

While using Xamarin Forms for my actual project, I’ve found some differences of Xamarin XAML language implementations from Microsoft one that I think is worth noting. I hope this post can be helpful to avoid some pitfalls and to be proficient on developing with it.

On this post I will illustrate how to create multiple version of resources that can be used at runtime to adapt to the device and user that’s running the app.

On the ASP.NET vNext version, one of the Microsoft efforts is to create a great command line experience. In this post I will describe some exoteric syntax of Windows Batch Scripting (like Call operator and Percent-Tilde operator) that will help command line rookies to read and understand some important batch commands, like KVM.cmd.
