Android Studio 2.3 released on 1 March. I recently created a guide to install Xamarin side by side with Android Studio 2.2.3 here.
The steps illustrated remain the same. The only difference is, the Android Studio 2.3 zip file (without sdk and installer) can be located here. If 2.23 was previously installed, migrate the 2.2.3 settings on first run of Android Studio 2.3. This will copy across the shared SDK location with the Xamarin installation.
I returned home from the Cape Town Xamarin User’s group last night to find that I have just become a Microsoft MVP for the first time!!!
I am so honored to be receiving this award!! Thank you to all that made this possible. It is really really amazing to know that all the years of work that went into assisting and contributing to the Xamarin and Microsoft community, globally and in South Africa has been appreciated!
Thank you once again! And here’s to more community fun and enjoyment!!
Tonight was a very fun evening at CTXUG (Cape Town Xamarin User’s Group). The two topics presented were Telerik UI for Xamarin and Lottie. The User Group was held at the MLab office at the waterfront which is a great place to have events!
“Telerik® UI for Xamarin by Progress is a collection of UI controls and functionalities that complement the default controls found in the platform. The controls offer many non-trivial scenarios out of the box, helping developers to implement polished UI with native-quality performance in their apps faster, shortening time to market. Telerik UI for Xamarin includes Xamarin.iOS wrappers, Xamarin.Android wrappers and Xamarin.Forms controls.”
I did the first talk this time on Telerik UI for Xamarin. It was great showing off what the component set could do, and everyone seemed inspired and impressed with what Telerik UI for Xamarin offers.
I do hope the free Telerik license recipients will be presenting the cool stuff they build soon at CTXUG!!! 🙂
