The Xamarin Live Player Unpacked

It is 2017, and it is almost criminal to say that your app doesn't work on a given mobile platform. This means, most mobile developers are building cross-platform apps.

Toolkits, Toolkits, Toolkits!

As a UWP developer, you have many options to help build your application quickly and reliably. In fact, there are so many options that you may feel like you can choose only one. Luckily, that’s not the case, and many toolkits complement each other in various ways. Today, we’ll talk about two open source toolkits: […]

Why Serverless?

Like most developers I know, I'm fairly jaded when it comes to the "next big thing." I've been in development, professionally, for over twenty years, and while I've seen a heck of a lot of incredible improvement in my time, I've also seen my fair share of fads that come and go. Up until somewhat […]

Accept Signatures in Your NativeScript Angular Mobile Application

Living in the San Francisco Bay Area, I run into startup businesses using payment processing applications like Square all the time.

Test Password Strength Using Regular Expressions in a NativeScript Mobile Application

Recently I released some content around form validation within a NativeScript application that uses Angular. This is great as you can use it to check your form for errors based on any number of criteria. However, what if you wanted to guide your users through a form process rather than validating the data? An example […]

How to Serve Serverless with Examples in Azure

Modern development is about fast, modular code, microserverices architectures and cloud-readiness. I wrote about cross-platform containers just a few months ago to explain the myriad benefits of having small, self-contained images with all of your app dependencies in simple, lightweight and reusable containers.

What about connecting to your LED Smart Rope to manage a workout even while offline, right from your browser? With the new Web Bluetooth […]

Have Web Standards on Mobile Caught Up to Phonegap in 2017? Pt. 2

In my previous article, I took a look at the "core" set of PhoneGap/Cordova plugins and how well (or how poorly) they are supported now via web standards. The idea wasn't to say you never need go hybrid, but that you may not necessarily have to go hybrid, which was one of the core principles […]
