Xamarin Contest: Working with new Xamarin DataPages
I love the Xamarin contests. There were several ones, but I have participated in just one before and it was awesome. You can check it out here:

As described in the contest page, one is supposed to choose at least one of the new features of the Xamarin.Forms 2.*:
- Native control embedding
- URL navigation
- CarouselView control
- Compiled XAML
- ListView cell recycling strategy
- Control templates
- Data template selector
After creating an app with the chosen feature, one is supposed to tweet it.
As my choice was Xamarin.Forms DataPages, it deserves a brief explanation.
What is DataPages?
In short, it is an easier way to create/populate your app pages… :) Ok! That was too short… So, let’s see what is the Xamarin definition for that:
DataPages provide an API to quickly and easily bind a data source to pre-built views. List items and detail pages will automatically render the data, and can be customized using themes.
As soon as possible I will update a link for my code here. ;)
That's all! If you liked it click in the green heart.
