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.

In this series of posts, I’ll describe how to build a SQLite Test app that will run on Windows Runtime 8.1 Devices (Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1).

On this second post, we will see how to use the Universal App project type to avoid unnecessary duplication of code by sharing the things that remain the same for both Windows Store app and Windows Phone Store app, and how to take advantage of SQLite to manage locally stored data.

In this series of posts, I’ll describe how to build a SQLite Test app that will run on Windows Runtime 8.1 Devices (Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1).

On this first post, I will briefly introduce the new “Universal App” Visual Studio project type, and explain how to add SQLite to the project.

What happens to execution flow when we call a navigation method in the code behind of a XAML page?
Let’s find itwith a very simple test & see app

In this article, I’m going to explain how to modify the custom DataTemplateSelector described by WindowsPhoneGeek to achieve these additional benefits:

  • Move the DataTemplate definitions from the ListBox to the page or app resources
  • See the result at design time.
