Xamarin.iOS Featured

Xamarin.iOS is such a great tool, and Michael Crump shares an excellent video he made on building your first app with Xamarin.iOS. This is a must-see for all you budding iOS devs out there.

Zain Naboulsi then shares some nice tips on Visual Studio 2013. If you don’t have the preview yet, be sure to download that and play around with some of the new features.

Have a fantastic day today. Here is The Daily Six Pack!

Windows 8.1 Preview Featured

Windows 8.1 Preview will be with us on June 26th. Some of the new features are included in the lock screen, Start screen, All Apps, desktop, Search, SkyDrive, Snap and Photos experiences. Something tells me that Windows 8.1 will be a real doozy! For those that didn’t like Windows 8, why not try Windows 8.1?

Then David Starr talks about the awesome new Visual Studio 2013 HUD feature. Man, that will make me feel like I’m flying a Tomcat instead of working. Then P. Kelley talks about multiple workspaces in Visual Studio.

Then check out the post by Janes Oosthuizen on configuring Instagram to post to your Facebook timeline or a Facebook page you manage. Just be sure to switch off the feature that shares all your Instagram likes to Facebook if you don’t want that to be posted to your timeline. It’s a really nice tip, so be sure to head on over and read the post.

There we go, it’s Thursday! Have a really great one folks. Here is The Daily Six Pack!

IntelliTrace Featured

IntelliTrace is a new feature introduced by Microsoft in Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate (Yes believe it or not, not everyone is using Visual Studio 2012 yet). It was previously known as Historical Debugger. IntelliTrace is a tool that helps developers track down bugs that might not be reproducible in their managed code apps. Think of as an example, those that appear only once because of a web service error or a system issue. See more in the featured link.

Then, (as everyone knows) many shiny new things were unveiled at Google’s I/O recently. What was also announced was a brand new IDE that has been built with the needs of Android developers in mind. Called Android Studio, this free IDE is available now for you to try as an early access preview.

Lastly, my wife has just made me go white with fear as I realized how gullible people really are. She received a mail from the South African Revenue Service stating that an amount of money has been paid into her account. She still told me jokingly that she could see from the email address that it was a spam mail. [Scare Alert – Enter Scary Music Now] She also told me that she clicked on the link in the mail because she was curious to see what it did. I am convinced… WE are our own worst security risk. I think I need to write a blog post on this. Anyway, Troy Hunt brings us some more excellent security advice, so give that article of his a read.

Have a great day today! I am off to go and educate the wifey on good security practices. Here is The Daily Six Pack!
