The Mysterious Inverter Converter

Xamarin.Forms 4.7 is out. James and Matt break it down for you, especially multi-bindings. Multi-bindings are cool. They allow binding of more than one property from your view model to a user interface control’s property. However, when using multi-bindings in the right way, you unleash the mysterious beast called the “Inverter Converter”

What is it? Tune in to find out.

Xamarin.Forms has more goodness than multi-bindings though. James and Matt talk about how Grid definitions get slimmed way down. Light and dark mode becomes easy to manage. Additionally, James’ ImageCircle plugin is no longer needed.

Quick Tips Are All The Rage

In case you missed it last month, James started a new series on the Xamarin blog showing off some quick tips to use with Xamarin.Forms Shell. He is back this month with how to do back navigation.

It wouldn’t be summer time (in the northern hemisphere) without some new Android requirements! The hosts will fill you in on all the details.

Azure, Azure, Azure

Who loves Azure? Everybody loves Azure!

This month, Matt updates you on why Azure SQL just might be the best database out there on Azure for developers.

Plus – have you heard about Power Automate? Tune-in to find out! Both James and Matt show their love for the Power Platform.

All of that and more – including the Azure Service of the Month and the Pick of the Pod!
