A mentor first and a coder second, an Open Source developer. Coffee + Code = <3. Every day I try to write code just slightly better than I did yesterday. Once a week a crush code on my Live Coding Stream, you should check it out!

I'm Andrew Hoefling, and I work for FileOnQ as a Lead Software Engineer building mobile technologies for Government, Financial and First Responders using Xamarin.

Xamarin.Forms 4.0 brings new enhancements to the platform that has Xamarin Developers excited. My favorite new feature is Xamarin Shell which creates simple APIs for building powerful apps that include Tab Bars, Flyout Menus and more! The tooling builds an Application Shell and let's the developer focus on buidling their application.

When integrating with Azure Services regardless of what the service is, you are commonly required to provide a Tenant ID which is sometimes refered to as a Directory ID. This is a GUID that is used commonly for API access. Some tools skip the Tenant ID and request a Tennant Name? What is that?

Dependency Injection is a new feature coming to DNN in 9.4 that allows you to inject abstractions or other objects into your Web Forms Module. This has been a common practice in both ASP.NET and ASP.NET Core application development. Removing the tight coupling between your controller code and business layer of your module.

Dependency Injection is a new feature coming to DNN in 9.4 that allows you to inject abstractions or other objects into your Razor3 Module. This has been a common practice in both ASP.NET and ASP.NET Core application development. Removing the tight coupling between your controller code and business layer of your module.

Dependency Injection is a new feature coming to DNN in 9.4 that allows you to inject abstractions or other objects into your SPA Web API Module Controllers. This has been a common practice in both ASP.NET Web API and ASP.NET Core application development. Removing the tight coupling between your controller code and business layer of your module.

Dependency Injection is a new feature coming to DNN in 9.4 that allows you to inject abstractions or other objects into your MVC Module Controllers. This has been a common practice in both ASP.NET MVC and ASP.NET Core MVC application development. Removing the tight coupling between your controller code and business layer of your module.

Dependency Injection is used in many modern applications, it is ubiquitous across .NET application development. In .NET Core it has been built into the platform as a core feature that gets configured during the App Startup code. DNN was built before Dependency Injection became so popular in .NET, and in-lieu of Dependency Injection the Factory Pattern was heavily used. Adding Dependency Injection in DNN will be the first major step towards migrating to .NET Core.

At Microsoft Build this week (May 6th) the App Center Team announced new features that allow you to use App Center to manage your Authentication and Data. As well a more complete Push Notification story if your App outgrows the capabilities of App Center. AppCenter is trying to be your 1 stop for everything Mobile and with the addition of these new features they are doing a great job!

Microsoft Build 2019 was this week and lots of big announcements are coming from Microsoft with what the future of .NET and the ecosystem of developer tools looks like. This year there was a HUGE announcement about the future of .NET with the introduction of .NET 5.
