Just last monday, I was asked if I could give a talk anything about Azure for Global Azure Bootcamp. At first, I wasn’t very sure what to talk about since I was focusing on Mobile .NET and I have a tight schedule last week. But then, I remembered that I will train STI college professors about Azure Mobile App and how to integrate it to a Xamarin.Forms application, so why not talk about it. Plus, I also remembered that there is this one thing that I wanted to share about Azure Mobile App that can probably make some of the audience’s jaw drop… and it did!
While I was answering questions in StackOverflow, I encountered a question about Xamarin.Forms’ DisplayALert. My first answer was so wrong and it’s not solving any problem. I was trying to correct something which is already correct. I’ll be honest, I haven’t actually tried out his code. So, I tried the code myself. I thought it was only a bug within his app, but apparently, it’s been a bug for a very long time.
As a developer who has always been working with Microsoft Technologies, specifically, Windows (Phone and Desktop) 8, 8.1, and UWP apps, launching other apps from an app that I’m developing is really quick and easy. With just two lines of code, you can execute external apps which is installed to your device or machine. All you have to do is to create a
myapp://app Uri and launch it using
Last month, my friend, Michael John Pena, who’s a Microsoft MVP for Windows App Development asked me to talk about Xamarin and Bot Framework. I did not hesitate to accept it since it’s been a while since I last talk about Microsoft technologies. Plus, it’ll be the last time I’ll see my friend, coz he’s leaving our country for good. While I was at the meetup, I met new folks who also develops and talks about Xamarin stuff It was pretty awesome since we’ve talked about a lot of stuff not only about Xamarin, but .NET as a whole. We became really comfortable with each other, so we started a Facebook group chat.
Last month, I talked about how to integrate your chat bot, particularly your Microsoft bot framework, into your Xamarin.Forms application alongside with Philip Domingo, my friend and my colleague from Avanade. He created a simple chat bot with Azure Bot Service which is pretty cool and very easy. You can even make a bot without typing any code. How awesome is that?
My experience working with video and audio streaming in Xamarin.Forms. We had this project where we used Xamarin.Forms for developing a cross-platform chatbot (Bot Framework + LUIS.ai) application (btw, this was my first Xamarin.Forms project). We needed to play a video and I thought it will be really easy, because in UWP development, you can just use MediaElement and I’ve never been so wrong in my life. It’s so painful, especially with UWP.
Hello, everyone! Welcome to the mind of ai! This is my first time blogging, but I’ve created a lot of article before (back from college, atleast lol). This is really amazing for me, because I’ve been sharing bunch of awesome things about Microsoft Technology, especially Mobile .NET Development through talks, but I believe that I can share more with creating articles quickly. Another thing that I really love to do is to help other developers with their mobile development issues.
