This week, James is joined by friend of the show & Microsoft MVP Alexandre Costa who show us the importance of making mobile apps accessible. He talks through a non-accessible mobile app, the impact to your users, and how to easily add a few properties to make them accessible and how to test them.Show Links:Sample CodeDocumentation: Accessibility for Xamarin AppsDocumentation: Accessibility for Xamarin.
Eine Business-Anwendung ohne ListView ist wohl keine Business-Anwendung. Daher ist es kaum verwunderlich, dass man ohne ListView in seiner App auskommt. Doch wenn man viele Einträge in der Liste hat, wird diese auch schnell unübersichtlich und daher möchte man seine Einträge gruppieren. In diesem Beitrag möchte ich nun aufzeigen, wie einfach ihr eine gruppierte Liste in eure Xamarin.Forms App integrieren könnt.

In this blog post, you will learn how to create a borderless entry with rounded corner in Xamarin.Forms.IntroductionXamarin.Forms code runs on multiple platforms - each of which has its own filesystem. This means that reading and writing files is most easily done using the native file APIs on each platform. Alternatively, embedded resources are a simpler solution to distribute data files with an app.
In an earlier post that talked about using dependency injection and registering interfaces for working with Refit across both Prism and MvvmCross I had code that registered an instance of the CustomHttpMessageHandler class which internally used a HttpClientHandler for its InnerHandler. For developers who have spent a bit of time optimising their iOS, Android or Windows application, you’ll have noted that using the HttpClientHandler is generally not deemed to be best practice.
New machine and new project means getting to test drive a new way of development Xamarin and Xamarin.Forms applications. I have a clean Surface Book 2 running Windows 10 that I installed the latest and greatest version of Visual Studio 2019 and JetBrains Rider 2018.3.4. After configuring my emulators and everything in Visual Studio, I load up JetBrains Rider and nothing seems to work correctly. Wh
We are excited to announce a new inclusion to our Xamarin Showcase gallery:
The Aggreko Technician App
A key objective of Aggreko’s company-wide Aggreko18 digital transformation program was to streamline field operations and revolutionize their technician processes.
The Aggreko Technician App was developed to give technicians access to a multitude of asset user manuals,

Im vergangenen Jahr habe ich in mehreren Artikeln gezeigt, wie man sich eine RepeaterView schreiben kann. Das Ziel war es ein Control zu haben, welches eine ItemsSource entgegen nimmt und diese dann rendert. Dies ist zum Beispiel dann sinnvoll, wenn man auf die zusätzlichen Features einer ListView verzichten kann. Mit Xamarin.Forms 3.5 ist nun ein neues Feature verfügbar, welches auf den Namen BindableLayout hört.
Xamarin.Essentials provides developers with cross-platform APIs for their mobile applications. On this week's Xamarin.Essential API of the week we take a look at Geocoding, which enables you to geocode a placemark(address) to a positional coordinate or reverse geocode coordinates to a placemark!Show Notes:Xamarin.Essentials DocumentationXamarin.Essentials Getting Started DocumentationGeocoding DocumentationSource CodeFind James on: Twitter, GitHub, Blog, and his weekly development podcast Merge Conflict.
Over the last month or two, Xamarin has run two challenges involving completing small tasks with upcoming Xamarin.Forms 4 features - the Visual Challenge and the CollectionView Challenge. As a relatively staunch "Xamarin Native" developer that finds himself using progressively more Forms Embedding as time passes, I thought these would be good opportunities to check out the new features and catch up on Forms progress.
Mobile devices are limited in many ways. Whether it’s how much of a charge your battery can hold, the amount of storage you have left, or the speed of your internet connection to view more cat gifs. We need to keep this into consideration for our users to give them the absolute best mobile experience.

Artificial Intelligence continues to gain more traction, now that companies such as Google, Microsoft and others, have released a suite of easy to use tools. It now enables us to create smarter apps, and open up a new range of applications. Xamarin doesn’t have any AI or Machine Learning capabilities itself, but does play a part in gathering data and displaying information from AI systemsJoin With us in #Global Azure Bootcamp on April 27, 2019.

Der eine oder andere hat sie vielleicht bereits entdeckt, meine erste eigene iOS App im Apple App Store: Deutschlands Kennzeichen. Dabei handelt es sich um eine Portierung meiner UWP-Version der Kennzeichen-App. Als Framework habe ich hierbei Xamarin.Forms verwendet, so dass ebenfalls eine Android-Version zur Verfügung steht. Gerade wenn man viel auf deutschen Autobahnen unterwegs ist, entdeckt man manchmal Kennzeichen, welche man direkt einer Stadt oder einem Kreis zuordnen kann.
At the Melbourne Xamarin Meetup April 2019 Meetup, I gave a third (!) rendition of my talk from last year on ARKit - Apple's Augmented Reality (AR) - framework for mobile. You can see more about the original talk on my earlier post.
This time the meetup was streamed on Twitch, potentially signalling my transition from chatroom memer to full-time streamer (but probably not). It is also now published on YouTube, so you can watch it back at your leisure (~1h):
Again, I added a new demo to the the Earthbound-themed demo app to keep it fresh.
This week, James is joined by friend of the show Amanda Chew, App Center Program Manager, shows us the latest features in App Center diagnostics for mobile applications including filtering, searching, errors vs crashes, attaching logs and events, and a lot more! She also shows us how to setup webhooks to notify chat applications when there is a new crash or open an issue on GitHub or Azure DevOps automatically.

With macOS Mojave, Apple introduced support for Hardened Runtime and Notary service. These two services are designed to improve application security on macOS. Recently Apple has stated:
“Beginning in macOS 10.14.5, all new or updated kernel extensions and all software from developers new to distributing with Developer ID must be notarized in order to run.
