CrossAnalyzers, a new set of Roslyn refactorings and analyzers for VB and C#

I love open source and I recently published another project to GitHub called CrossAnalyzers.

This project provides a number of code analysis rules and refactorings for both Visual Basic and C#, that integrate into the Visual Studio 2015 code editor.

It's typically about patterns, e.g. it suggests you are binding a List instead of an ObservableCollection in platforms such as WPF or Xamarin, or it easily allows implementing view models or the INotifyPropertyChanged interface.

Analyzers are available on NuGet, while both analyzers and refactorings are also available in the Visual Studio Gallery. Here's a sample in action, but don't forget to check out the repository with more docs.

Chatting about Code Snippet Studio with Syncfusion

Code Snippet Studio is an open source tool I started to build almost an year ago and, honestly, I mainly did it for myself.

It is available as an extension for Visual Studio 2015 and a stand-alone app, but the extension has been definitely more successful.

After an year and more than 7K downloads, I receive a lot of feedback and bug reports so I think it's an interesting tool for the developer community.

Recently, I have been interviewed on Code Snippet Studio by Syncfusion and the reason is that I used some controls from the Essentials Studio for WPF suite. They offer a free Community License which is perfect for an open source project like that.

Here you find the interview and please don't forget the project is open to contributions!

Introducing the Xamarin.Forms Starter Kit and the #XaMonday Show

I'm currently very busy with Xamarin.Forms for both development and training, so I decided to share some experiences I made with this platform.

First, I published an open source project on GitHub called the Xamarin.Forms Starter Kit. It's a basic news reader, but it includes a number of things such as SQLite local data access, connectivity check, data-binding, pull-to-refresh, and more.

It's here, and your contributions are welcome.

Secondly, I started a new video series on Channel9 called the #XaMonday Show, where I'll be publishing a new video about Xamarin.Forms every monday (hopefully!).

This is my way to share what I learn and to say thanks to all of those people who share what they learn and face with this platform every day.
