In this episode of the Xamarin Show we're talking about the much anticipated TabView. The TabView is now included inside of the Xamarin Community Toolkit and I have Javier on, who has worked on this, to show us what it's all about.
Swiping between tabs, customizing the looks, styling it any way you want, all that and much more can be done with the flexible TabView. Make sure to tune in!
Xamarin Community Toolkit: TabView by The Xamarin Show
We use lists of data a lot in our apps, so one scenario that crops up a lot is how to show that data is being fetched from the web to populate the list. By default, it just looks blank which can confuse users. In this video, David shows you how you can use Xamarin Community Toolkit's StateViews, you can have a helpful loading screen to inform users, neat!

Good architecture of your code is important and one example of this is loose coupling. Did you know that Xamarin comes with a messaging centre out of the box to help support this loose coupling between classes? Gerald teaches us all about it in this video.
