Join Kevin Ford for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of New Features Xamarin and Visual Studio 2017.
- [Instructor] This course comes with several exercise files. I suggest that you drop them on the desktop as I've done here. There are subfolders for each chapter, and you should open the folder that corresponds to the video you are watching. Within each folder are subfolders for each video. Every folder contains a solution that is the starting point for the video if the video requires code. There are two solutions that are used throughout the course. The first is a Xamarin.Forms application that contains some information on old, air-cooled VWs.
The second is a Xamarin platform solution using native, Android, and iOS UIs. This is mostly used to demonstrate some of the performance-monitoring tools. When we recorded the course, we showed the operation of Visual Studio 2017 using version 15.0. If you use a different version, your experience may be slightly different but essentially the same.
