At the end of 2014, Microsoft has announced the acquisition of HockeyApp, a class leading service for mobile crash analytics and app distribution for developers building apps on iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Windows, OS X, etc…
Last week at Evolve 2016, the annual event about Xamarin products and technologies, some announcements were made and one of them concerns the first improvements integrated in HockeyApp, after the acquisition of Xamarin by Microsoft, earlier in March 2016.
If you speak french and re interested to discover what’s HockeyApp and how to integrate the service into your Xamarin applications, take a look at my new video available on Channel 9.
As Microsoft MVPs, we have opportunities to collaborate with Microsoft teams and we have access to a lot of resources and tools which are not available to the general audience.
Today, I’m proud to announce that my first screencast (and certainly not the last) was published on Channel 9, the official Microsoft video portal for developers.
If you speak French (yes it’s my native language) and are interested by Xamarin development, you can discover how to configure your Visual Studio 2015 development environment to develop iOS applications.
Yesterday was a great day for me because two important things happened in the same day.
Firstly, for the 6th consecutive month, the record of visitors on this blog was beaten.
In September 2015, you were 780 to visit this website with 1,100 page views.
It’s a great pride for me to see that you appreciate the work done here, and that you are more and more numerous each month to read this blog and its content.
Secondly, probably in recognition on the work done in the past months, I’ve been awarded by Microsoft as MVP (Most Valuable Professional) on Office Development.
If you don’t know what are Microsoft MVPs, this is what they say on the official website (https://mvp.microsoft.com) :
“Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals, or MVPs, are community leaders who’ve demonstrated an exemplary commitment to helping others get the most out of their experience with Microsoft technologies“.
It’s a great honour for me to be recognized for my work but it’s also thanks to you that this could have happened.
So I would like to thank all of you, visitors of this website, and Microsoft people who appreciated what I’ve done in the past months.
I hope this will continue in the next months/years with a growing success for all of us 😉
