This week, James is joined by friend of the show Marc Mercuri, Program Manager on the Azure Blockchain Development Kit Team, who introduces us to the world of blockchain. He shows us a full end to end scenario of why and how you would use blockchain in applications.
Azure Blockchain Development Kit for Mobile Apps by James Montemagno
It is a very special week on Merge Conflict as James Montemagno gets to sit down and interview Frank Krueger about his childhood, life, career, move to independent developer, and future plans.
From humble beginnings in New York, to electrical engineer, internship at Microsoft on the WPF team, business owner, world traveler, and now independent developer.
You do not want to miss this episode.
In this first episode of the New Year - and the second month in a row - James and Matt chat about the office hours that Matt's been hosting with the community. James has some big news about Hockey App ... or is that App Center now? Xamarin University is retiring, but Xamarin.Essentials is now a star of its own video series!
James will give you a rundown of his hands on experiences with Xamarin.Forms 4.0 and introduce you to the new .NET Community Stand-Ups. In cloud news - there's a new Azure Cosmos DB SDK in town and Matt loves the auth - and there's news about auth in Azure Functions!
And we have new release news for you too! Xamarin.Essentials, Visual Studio 2017, Android Support 28 Libraries, and Unity support in App Center. Plus the Pick of the Pod!
We finally sit down with Leonardo and Diego from UXDivers to talk about their products GrialKit and Gorilla Player.
GrialKit is a collection of Xamarin.Forms user controls, templates, pages, and basically a really simple way to make your app look great.
Gorilla Player lets you live preview and hot reload XAML from your Xamarin.Forms products on a device or simulator.
In this new episode of Xamarin.Essentials API of the week from the Xamarin Show, James Montemagno discusses preferences. Not iOS, Android, Native or Xamarin.Forms development though but instead a neat way to store application preferences in a key/value store.
