Well this is all I have in Visual C# https://imgur.com/a/BJGoEcM I even tried to modify the install to get the android and cross-platform etc, but I did not get them and only lost space from ssd. Useless tutorial for me.. The hard part here is the super weird installation of visual studio. It does not make sense at all.
he look a bit overly excited
I did everything as shown in the Video / the Tutorial, but it doesnt open the app on the debug device from Visual Studio. All im left with is a virtual android device with no custom app.
What is required to try the app on the virtual android device in visual studio?
Why does everytime I try to build it, it will say that "Build has been canceled." What to do with this. Thank you for the reply.
what a mess, for just a button that increases number…
I need to build an Android VPN app in order to sell VPN to customers

Thank you but please… use dark theme
Can we use Entity Framework to our Android app in VS2017?
This is awesome. Where is the next video?
If I were to whan't to get a job there how could I do that
If you don't mind could you please make a tutorial on how to install Visual Studio. I've been having problems making apps, because other programmers don't show what you have to install from the VS installer and this makes life harder. I'd really appreciate it if you made a video that would just make creating apps easier. Thank you in advance.
This is actually great! Will try it out.
How do i create a native project???? i dont want to work with Forms…. and apparently the native template has been removed
I created a new shared project with dot net 2.0. Immediately it wont compile. About 75 errors. Got it down to 3 errors. Cant get rid of them. Awesome when you load up their own project and it breaks. This happens almost everytime with Xamarin for me.
Get ready for the biggest swarm of bugs and performance drops everybody!!!!!!!
how to share a design?
