In this first episode of the New Year - and the second month in a row - James and Matt chat about the office hours that Matt's been hosting with the community. James has some big news about Hockey App ... or is that App Center now? Xamarin University is retiring, but Xamarin.Essentials is now a star of its own video series!
James will give you a rundown of his hands on experiences with Xamarin.Forms 4.0 and introduce you to the new .NET Community Stand-Ups. In cloud news - there's a new Azure Cosmos DB SDK in town and Matt loves the auth - and there's news about auth in Azure Functions!
And we have new release news for you too! Xamarin.Essentials, Visual Studio 2017, Android Support 28 Libraries, and Unity support in App Center. Plus the Pick of the Pod!
