Matt Soucoup wants to hear your stories about building mobile apps with Xamarin or Azure or mobile development in general - so go ahead, ask him anything! In this post he recaps the last few months of open office hours covering what he has been hearing from Xamarin developers.

I ❤️ every single developer.
And I want to hear your stories. I want to hear about your successes, your "not-so-much" successes, and any questions or concerns you may have about our tooling. This way I can bring all of those back to the product teams to advocate for you. I'll get the answers, inform the product teams of what's working and what's not, and together we'll influence the products and make developing even more fun - for everybody.
