Xamarin Essentials: Features, Advantages and Benefits

Xamarin Essentials adds all kinds of useful APIs in a single NuGet package. Let’s learn the basics of Xamarin essentials as we take a look!

It’s normal to use different NuGet packages to add more functionalities when we are developing an app, but it’s important to use as few NuGet packages as possible in order to have the best performance possible. That’s why we are going to learn about Xamarin.Essentials! 😍

What is Xamarin.Essentials?

Xamarin.Essentials gives us different multiplatform APIs that allow us to add features in our application, such as accelerometer, barometer, geocoding, geolocation, among others. The largest advantage is that we can get access to all of these functionalities using JUST ONE NuGet Package named Xamarin.Essentials. In previous versions of Xamarin.Forms, we had to add this NuGet to our project, but now it’s added by default when creating a new project.

Benefits and Advantages of Big Data & Analytics in Business

By now, everyone has heard of Big Data and the wave it has created in the industry. After all, it’s always in the news – companies across various sectors of the industry are leveraging Big Data to promote data-driven decision making. Today, Big Data’s popularity has extended beyond the tech industry to include healthcare, education, governance, retail, manufacturing, BFSI, and supply chain management & logistics, to name a few. Almost every enterprise and organization, big or small, is already leveraging the benefits of Big Data.

According to Gartner, “Big Data are high volume, high velocity, and/or high-variety information assets that require new forms of processing to enable enhanced decision making, insight discovery, and process optimization.”

In essence, Big Data refers to datasets that are too large or complex for traditional data processing applications (for instance, ETL systems). It is characterized by three core features – high volume, high velocity, and high variety. Rapid development and adoption of disruptive technologies (AI, ML, IoT), rapidly-growing mobile data traffic, cloud computing traffic, and high penetration of smartphones, all contribute to creating an ever-increasing volume and complexity of large datasets.

Since the advantages of Big Data are numerous, companies are readily adopting Big Data technologies to reap the benefits of Big Data. Statista maintains that the global big data market will grow to $103 billion by 2027, with the software industry leading the Big Data market with a 45% share. While the global Big Data and Business Analytics market was valued at $169 billion in 2018, it is estimated to rise to $274 billion by 2022. In 2018, nearly 45% of professionals in the market research industry used big data analytics as a research method.

Xamarin.Essentials 1.6 preview: macOS, media, and more!

Xamarin.Essentials has been a staple for developers building iOS, Android, and Windows apps with Xamarin and .NET since it was first released last year. Now, we are introducing Xamarin.Essentials 1.6, which adds new APIs including MediaPickerAppActionsContacts, and more. Not to mention that this release also features official support for macOS! This means that Xamarin.Essentials now offers over 50 native integrations with support for 7 different operating systems. All from a single library that is optimized for performance, linker safe, and production ready. Here is a highlight reel of all the new features:

Welcome macOS

Since the first release of Xamarin.Essentials the team and community have been continuously working to add more platforms to fit developer’s needs. After adding tvOS, watchOS, and Tizen support the next natural step was first class support for macOS to compliment the UWP desktop support. I am pleased to announce most APIs are now supported for macOS 10.12.6 (Sierra) and higher! Take a look at the update platform support page to see all of the APIs that you can leverage on your macOS apps.
