It’s been another great year for mobile, and a great year for Xamarin, too, as we became part of the Microsoft family and have been able to make Xamarin, Xamarin Test Cloud, and Xamarin University even more accessible to developers around the world.

Between covering these changes and keeping up with mobile advancements throughout the year, we’re thrilled to have have shared many posts on this blog that resonated with the community. Over the last few weeks, we’ve been counting down these top blog posts in our annual “12 Days of Xamarin” series on Twitter, and today we’re revealing the top post of 2016.
