Using SQLite database in Xamarin.Android

I started to define development tasks to be done within MoneyBack project in the coming days (maybe I’ll even publish my Trello board soon 🙂 ) and it turned out that each functionality the app is going to offer needs persistent storage (e.g. to store people, payments, events etc.). The obvious choice is the local database in which I could store my entities and application’s data.

In this post, I’d like to show you how quickly and easily SQLite database can be added and started to be used in Xamarin.Android project using SQLite.NET and Visual Studio 2017.

Hello Xamarin World – first steps

This time I want to say “Hello” to Xamarin world.

First thing that needs to be done before starting Xamarin development, is obviously the installation of all necessary components.

In this post I want to share my feelings about the installation (not without issues of course), configuration of my Xamarin Android solution and deployment process to the device.
