Nice one! Shall be checking that out for sure.
Nice . Very nice. I look forward to exploring this. Thanks for sharing Karl.
Let me know if you see an interest in the UX/VIS design integration side of things. I would be really interested in exploring the opportunity to present there is if is something that complements what you are doing Karl?
I will Karl.
My opinion is that after Microsoft acquisition the majority of newcomers are using Xamarin Forms, and I think this is the natural evolution of any XAML developers entering the dark side of programming, but as I often recommend, Xamarin Forms are , at least as they have been conceived so far, for LOB applications, using them for complex or graphic intensive apps might become a real pain.
Don't forget that xamarin forms is very likely to go under significant changes in the next months after the acquisition. I am quite sure that Microsoft is not going to maintain two xaml frameworks. The best possible scenario, and the one that I keep recommending to Microsoft people, is to extend windows 10 UWP with renderers to be compiled to Android and iOS. This is the most logical way, given the Universal moniker. Now, that won’t be very easy and might cause a bit of friction but eventually I think it would create a fantastic story for the xaml stack. And from a technical standpoint, it doesn’t even seem super complex, to be honest.
Xamarin.Forms is exciting but it is still fairly immature (compared to Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS) and even Nat Friedman and others at Xamarin are kind of down playing its importance. An integration in the UWP stack os what makes the most sense IMHO.
Exciting times ahead for sure.
