As you may know by now, Xamarin-related challenges are very popular in 2019; so why not have yet another one.
This challenge would focus on proven best practices in all aspects of creating mobile apps (DevOps, project Structure, cross-cutting concerns, data, API, Testing, App Signing, etc).
If you are already familiar with prior challenges — like the Xamarin UI July challenge from Steven Thewissen, or the Xamarin Month, from Luis Matos- You would know that the challenge is in the style of an advent calendar, where an article about a particular topic is posted every day, by one of the amazing contributors. In this instance though, the article will be included in the Challenge repoas a Pull Request, and if also desired a brief blog post about the topic on the contributor’s own blog. The article should be in English.
The Challenge Repo will contain a Table of Contents (ToC), with an outline of topics — you can either choose a particular topic from the ToC or add a brand new topic if the ones listed do not cover what you want to write about.
As the challenges before, we would need at least 30 writers — one for each day- but we will certainly welcome additional contributions. Follow the steps below:
- Reserve a spot by submitting a creating an issue on the repo. Once reviewed, we will update the Table of Content with your topic, as well as updating the Calendar.
Submit a Pull Request. Write the article in a markdown file inside of the challenge repo .
Publish your blog post linking back to the original article and your contribution in the repo.
Post the links on Twitter with the hashtag #XamarinChallenge.
Similar to past challenges, we will have a special event shortly after the month of October to talk about all of the contributions. Stay tuned.
