I’m being checking all those Microsoft internal forums/communities/events for ever and I never being able to find them productive.
I always have the impression that they are not there to be useful. Microsoft have literal Billions of users and they actively promote those communities and still they are depressing desert most of the time and they don’t produce anything useful. Google, or even Bing, rarely return any valuable result from those places, it’s always stack overflow or some personal blog.
It’s a shame that Microsoft put so little resources into their App store. I thought Android and IOS were bad but Microsoft really is missing the mark.
I don’t get how they don’t realize that pushing and rewarding quality contents on their platform is what should matter most. Plus it is so disrespectful toward all the developers that decide to spend energy and time working on the their platforms.
Developing Microsoft .NET/UWP Windows 10 stuff is pretty easy and straightforward. Using the (well known?) flexible lightweight ZXing Library:
ZXing.Net.Mobile is a C#/.NET library based on the open source Barcode Library: ZXing (Zebra Crossing), using the ZXing.Net Port. It works with Xamarin.iOS, Xamarin.Android, Tizen, and UWP. The goal of ZXing.Net.Mobile is to make scanning barcodes as effortless and painless as possible in your own applications.
and saving the canvas as jpg/png. Going to integrate it in the AWDASH apps and in pretty much all the future projects.
