Hey everyone,

Welcome back to another Weekly Xamarin and my apologies for the late publication. I am heading to Seattle over the weekend so lots of things to get finished up.

This week we have a great set of links, including all the stuff from WWDC.

Have an amazing weekend everyone!

NEWS

Apples World Wide Developer Conference

So of course, WWDC happened, this week, and that means it's a good time to catch up on all the announcements. There has been a lot of jokes about the $999 monitor stand, but has also been some interesting announcements that we should care about as mobile developers.

Here are some resources to check out to get up to speed:

Xamarin Introductions - Charlin Agramonte

Charlin, or better known as XamGirl to many of us in the Xamarin community is a developer, speaker and writer based in the Dominican Republic. You'll often see her articles featured in the WeeklyXamarin newsletter, but we thought we would reach out to her to find out more, so here goes:

Tell us a bit about yourself?

I have 5+ years of experience in .NET, developing in Xamarin Forms since it started (in 2014). Currently Xamarin Certified Developer and Microsoft MVP. In my free time, I write articles in my blog Xamgirl.com

Tell us one thing we probably don't know about you?

Before becoming a developer I was a musician, I used to play the trumpet :P.

How did you first get into Xamarin development?

I started with a Xamarin Forms project in 2014. I remember the pain it was (Not much documentation and lot of issues) but sill then fall in love with XAML.

What has been the most enjoyable project you have built using Xamarin?

A project about AI + Xamarin Forms, was great because I learned a lot of new stuff. (Sadly, cannot talk much about it. NDA :P).

What advice would you give someone looking at getting started with Xamarin development?

The Xamarin community is awesome, so don't be afraid to ask questions, you will always find someone willing to help. Also, you can check this guide I wrote a few months ago with some tips to learn Xamarin: https://xamgirl.com/learning-xamarin-forms-personal-recipe/

What are the MUST HAVE tools, resources and libraries that you use when building Xamarin apps?

Where do you think mobile will be in 5 years?

Probably doing less code to achieve greater things :)

Any other things you would like to share or promote?
