The Xamarin.Android team has worked hard to delivery amazing features that every Xamarin developer should be using. Now through the end of August, we challenge YOU to give them a try and get rewarded with some awesome Xamarin swag!
When debugging, your project has a single, simple goal: build fast. In day-to-day development, we want you writing code with the bulk of your time, not waiting for builds. Learn more about how to optimize build times!
One of our current focus areas in Xamarin.Android is build performance and reducing the multidex count. Developer productivity is directly impacted by the "inner dev loop": the time it takes to make a small code change and see the result on a device or emulator. Performance is a feature!
As a Xamarin developer working on Android apps, you may be well-aware of two issues that slow down your everyday development build times and the correctness of the build. If you aren't sure what the latter is, think back to the last time you had to manually remove your bin/obj folders within your project in order to fix a failure.
