Live from DevSum 2018 in sunny Stockholm, Sweden!

Do we really need Business Analysts? (spoiler alert: we do!).  This is the question made by Ewelina Kurasz, who is a Business Analyst, social scientist and communication specialist working at Volvo.

In this episode, Ewelina shares with us her experience working as a Business Analyst, how we can find
common ground with someone who has this kind of role in an organization, and how, as a
single point of contact for customers and teams, a Business Analyst can make the difference when the time comes to improving the inner processes and tasks in a company.

Interfaz Podcast Episodio 77–Live from DevSum 2018- What’s new in Xamarin with James Montemagno (in English)

Live from DevSum 2018 in sunny Stockholm, Sweden!

Everyone knows that Xamarin is the best thing since sliced bread.  At Build 2018, Microsoft announced some great new things related with Xamarin, Xamarin.Forms and the development tools.

In this episode I was very honored and thrilled to chat with the very famous James Montemagno, who is a Principal Program Manager for Mobile Developer Tools at Microsoft. He has been a .NET developer since 2005, working in a wide range of industries including game development, printer software, and web services. Prior to becoming a Principal Program Manager, James was a professional mobile developer and has now been crafting apps since 2011 with Xamarin.

In this episode, James described what are some of the new things that we can find in the latest Xamarin and Xamarin.Forms (like VisualStateManager…. wOOt!!!), and shared his advice for those developers that want to come to the Xamarin space.
