Here are the tricks I use to stay up-to-date with Xamarin, iOS, Android and .NET.

Blog Posts


Planet Xamarin aggregates content from the Xamarin Community into one news feed. This is where I discover all of the great blog posts from fellow Xamarin developers as well as the official blog posts from the Xamarin team at Microsoft.

I use Feedly to keep up with its RSS Feed.

Newsletters

These newsletters all deliver high quality content once per week

GitHub Repositories

GitHub recently released a new feature that allows us to be notified any time a new release is published by an open-source repo.

You can enable these notifications by selecting the "Releases only" option for each repo.

With this enabled, GitHub sends me an email notification each time an update has been released.

Here's a few repos to watch:

Watch GitHub Releases

GitHub Users

Along with watching repos, I also follow a few influential .NET / Xamarin developers.

And I use DevHub to stay up-to-date with their latest activities on GitHub; it's basically like TweetDeck for GitHub.

Here are a few of the folks I follow on GitHub:
