DomusDotNet Xamarin Day – Roma 9 Settembre 2016

Il prossimo 9 settembre, presso la sede Microsoft di Roma, ci sarà l’evento “DomusDotNet Xamarin Day” organizzato dalla community romana DomusDotNet (di cui indegnamente mi fregio far parte anche io).

L’evento nasce da un’idea di Gaetano Paternò, un nuovo membro della community che appena arrivato ha dato subito una spinta niente male!

Come sempre, per gli eventi community non c’è da pagare nulla, e troverete tante persone appassionate che saranno felici di condividere con voi le proprie conoscenze.

Ovviamente l’evento è incentrato, come si capisce bene dal nome, su Xamarin, una tecnologia per lo sviluppo mobile multipiattaforma, da poco entrata a far parte della famiglia Microsoft.

Ovviamente gli speaker sono tutte persone che “sono sul pezzo”, quindi oltre alla passione ci sarà anche l’esperienza concreta a supportare le loro sessioni.

Per cui non esitate: agenda e iscrizione li trovate qui !!!

Evento: DotNetToscana – Creare App per Office 365 e SharePoint 2013 con ASP.NET MVC 5

La community DotNetToscana ha organizzato questo ottimo evento, in cui verrà illustrato il nuovo “App-Model” introdotto dalla nuova versione di Office 365 e da SharePoint 2013.

Si parlerà anche di com’è possibile sfruttare le conoscenze di ASP.NET MVC 5 e SQL Azure, per scrivere un’App che interagisca con i servizi e i contenuti offerti da SharePoint e che funzioni sul Cloud ed on-premises.

L’evento, della durata di un’ora dalle 17 alle 18 di Lunedì 28 Aprile 2014, sarà curato da Emanuele Bartolesi di DotNetToscana e da Giuseppe Marchi (SharePoint MVP).

Architecting Mobile Solutions for the Enterprise (Dino Esposito, Microsoft Press)

This is not the first book I read of Dino Esposito. And it will not be the last! Dino Esposito is a great author, and any book of him is always a guarantee.

In this book the author share with the reader his experience about architectural topics, explaining with great simplicity the basic and the advanced rules and guidelines we should count on to design and implement a mobile application.

After introductory chapters in which the author illustrates concepts about requirements and strategy for which can be necessary to develop a mobile application, the following chapters begins with the analysis of the context where the app is concerned to exist, to understand tips and techniques to determine the right architecture paradigm to adopt.

Then the book begin its journey to mobile apps implementation. Just to give some references, the reader will understand what are CSS Media Queries and how can be used for responsive design, will learn terms such as DDR and WURFL and understand in deep how can be used programmatically for device capabilities recognition, and will encounter some code examples with ASP.NET MVC, jQuery Mobile, HTML5 and CSS, and so on.

Another great chapter is about patterns for Mobile Application Development, used to explain a lot of patterns about interaction, presentation and behavior for the app to implement. This could be really useful to determine the right approach to design of the app.

Finally book complete the tour making a brief and concise dive into development for different major platforms such as iOs, Android and Windows Phone. Last but not least, an introduction on PhoneGap helps the reader to understand if this framework can be helpful for the development scope.

In conclusion, this is really one the best books I read about mobile development. Its coverage of topics about mobile development topics is almost complete.

I strongly encourage any mobile developer to read this book, because the final quality of a mobile app can be hardly influenced by most of the tips, concepts and guidelines explained in this book.

Mobile Design Pattern Gallery by Theresa Neil

For whom it may concern mobile application development, this singular book can really help to understand how a developer can organize and represent informations inside the implementing app.

In fact, the scope of this book is really just this. To help mobile developer to reduce effort having ideas about templates, allocation and information architecture to create a successful app with a great level of usability.

To implement an app using tips and templates exposed inside this book, any reader should understand how to replicate and adapt his requirements to that idea. Indeed, this book is not limited to design part, but contains patterns definition and a lot of other tips and suggestion of how to create and model own app.

Main mobile platforms treated are, of course, iOs, Android and Windows Phone, but any concept can be easily rearranged to target any mobile platform.

In brief, this is a very good reference guide to have for any mobile developer involved in creating a powerful and “easy to use” app.

Book is available here.

Beginning PhoneGap

If you are oriented to develop apps for mobile devices, and your intention is to write code once for different platforms, you should take a look at PhoneGap framework.

This book can you help you to understand what PhoneGap is and what can do to help you achieve your projects.

It is a reference book, to correctly understand APIs available in this framework and to show how you can simply create an app using web development paradigm and then deploy to different mobile platform such as iOs, Android, Windows Phone and so on.

But be careful, because this is not a magic wand. Platforms are different and even if developers and the communities are contributing to develop this framework, some differences persists between this mobile worlds, and so there are a lot of compromises you could accept to develop using PhoneGap.

It is anyway a great idea, and maybe in the near future, a more mature version will allow full capabilities on all devices.

This book was written when PhoneGap 1.0 was release. At this moment the last version is 1.4.1, so changes are in progrress and maybe something in this guide could be no more actual. But it covers all most significant APIs and explain with examples every single capability, so I can affirm that is a good deal to have this book to read it before, and to put it on your desk to use as a reference guide after.

If you are interested, the book is available here.
