Top Xamarin Videos of 2019

James Montemagno

Each week, we bring to you great developer content and deep dives from the team and community in the form of Xamarin videos. In addition to our regularly scheduled shows you will find the Xamarin Community Standups and event recordings including the Xamarin Developer Summit. This last year we crushed every single milestone we set for ourselves including new videos and video views. In addition to breaking the 50,000 subscriber count! We want to give a huge “Thank You” to all of you that watched, commented, and subscribed.

New Series

Earlier this year we re-launched the Xamarin Developers YouTube channel as a compliment to our shows that we publish on Channel 9.

Additionally, 2019 also launched several brand new series for Xamarin developers. Including the 11 part Xamarin 101 series and Partly Cloudy with Matt Soucoup. Partly Cloudy is the show where you will learn how to build a Xamarin.Forms app from scratch. Then walk all the way through deploying it to the App Stores. Along the way, you will see some Azure goodness sprinkled in to make a fully enabled, real-world, mobile app.

    Hi, most videos I had saw on Channel 9, I like Channel 9, it’s great!
    But when I tried to find the Channel 9’s mobile apps, it’s very difficult to find them. I installed a old Channel 9 app on my phone (Android), but it doesn’t work well after my OS updated, seems the app wasn’t under maintenance any more. If I’m wrong, could you please share me the link to download that? If it’s true, I think if would be great if you could write a new Channel 9 app via Xamarin, the app is really valuable, also maybe the project can be a start for many Xamarin beginners.

    Great thanks.

      Thanks for the feedback. I talked to the channel 9 team and they said:

      “We have discontinued that app along with a few others. We encourage users to use native podcasting apps on each platform and subscribe the feeds for offline downloading, etc. Or you can use the YouTube app (where the majority of our content is hosted).”

      You can find all of the Xamarin content on Channel 9 at:

        Thank you, I’ll have a try with your first suggestion, I’m so sad I cannot access YouTube from China.
