Xamarin Developer Summit

No use in burying the lede here – XAML HOT RELOAD 🔥🔄 was announced at the Xamarin Developer Summit on July 11! Now you can make changes to your XAML, hit save, and instantly see the changes in the simulator or device – all while maintaining the apps state!

That wasn’t the only exciting announcement though. Matt and James discuss others like Android App Bundles, and Android Startup Tracing.

More Podcast Goodness!

But more happened in the Xamarin world than just the Dev Summit!

Developing for Tizen? Want to use Xamarin.Essentials? You can with Xamarin.Essentials 1.2 – and you can also use Essentials with tvOS and watchOS too! Listen in for all the goodness about that.

The goodness doesn’t stop there. Matt and James hit on creating faster Android apps with smaller DEX files. Talk about a cool blog that shows you how to target for multiple device resolutions. And … and … Matt runs down the ins and outs of Azure Cosmos DB in the new monthly segment – Azure Service of the Month. And try Cosmos out with some free Azure too!

    Hot Reload looks absolutely amazing – fantastic work Xamarin team!  Can you please clarify which release it is available in, or is it still in private preview?  I tried the latest preview release of VS2019 (v16.2 preview 4) but it doesn’t seem to be available.
