Today, I finished migrating LINQ to Twitter from CodePlex to GitHub. I was happy with CodePlex for a long time. However, it just hasn’t been kept up to date. There hasn’t been any activity or improvements to the site in over two years. After watching the deterioration for a while, I decided to follow the lead of the the C# Team and other Microsoft projects ......

Today, I did a webinar for LearnNowOnline.com, titled “What’s New in Visual Studio 2015”. I provided an overview of IDE features, editor enhancements, ASP.NET updates, the new Universal App project type, Mobile application development, and debugging. This is free, so you can view it on-line here: http://bit.ly/1DiGNea You can also access code and slides ......

I’ve been trying out VS 2015’s new Custom Window Layouts feature. This lets you create, manage, and open different arrangements of windows in Visual Studio. The benefit of custom layouts is that you can quickly switch between window layouts that help you perform specific tasks, saving you time from going through the layout process to support scenarios ......

The Twitter API recently deprecated the statuses/update_with_media endpoint, which LINQ to Twitter abstracts via a TweetWithMedia method. It’s replaced with a new endpoint, media/upload, and a new parameter to statuses/update, media_ids. The benefit of the new API change is that you can now tweet multiple images. Naturally, LINQ to Twitter supports ......

The new version of LINQ to Twitter v3.0.5 adds support for uploading multiple images in a tweet. There’s also several bug fixes, including fixing a serious bug that affected VB developers. You can download the latest on CodePlex or via NuGet. @JoeMayo ......

The subject error just pops up for a project that has been running fine for a long time. It comes from IIS Express when running a Web application in Visual Studio. I’m not sure what causes it, but it might have been a side-effect of debugging other errors with Hyper-V and VPN. Looking around, the advice for fixing this was sparse and/or the typical ......

With Xamarin.Forms, Xamarin launched a new UI technology for cross-platform device development. Xamarin.Forms lets you use XAML to build your UI. I prefer to refer to the development target as a device, as opposed to mobile, because it seems that Xamarin is able to target anything that runs Android, iOS, or Windows – platforms that extend beyond phones ......

I just published a new Windows Phone app, Wines I Like: http://bit.ly/1rERrYq. After countless times that I’ve tried a new wine that I like and then forgotten the name, I figured I would write an app to help. This lets you take a picture and record some notes about the wine. It also does backup and restore. @JoeMayo ......

Wally McClure wrote a new article for Visual Studio Magazine, Using OAuth, Twitter and Async To Display Data. He explains a couple ways to work with OAuth and perform Twitter queries, including using LINQ to Twitter. His examples include both Xamarin.Android and Xamarin.iOS. Follow @wbm on Twitter for more Xamarin development tips. @JoeMayo ......
