"I wanted to learn more about Xamarin.Forms and, at the same time, make something that might benefit others. When I learned that my municipality (Stavanger, Norway) had just uploaded lots of open data regarding everyday hiking trips, I saw this as an opportunity to create an useful app. The app contains a list of 52 everyday hiking trips in or around the city of Stavanger, Norway. You can easily find out the hiking trips closest to you and get details about the trip like length and map route. You can also use the map function to search for trips in a specific area. I built it as a hobby project using mainly Xamarin.Forms and utilizing plugins to solve native functionality (geolocation, user settings, etc.). The app communicates with a .NET Core Web API to retrieve the data from a database, both of which are hosted using Azure. The first challenge was normalizing the data used in the app, since most of the textual information provided about the trips were stored in Word-files. Some RunOnce-jobs were created and run to retrieve specific fields from the Word-files and save them in a normalized database. The second challenge was to synchronize the data over to the mobile app and store it in a local database. I initially started with creating an Azure Function which would take retrieve the data from the database. The response time from the Azure Function proved to be very slow and I quickly realized that I would need to use something more responsive that didn't rely on a "cold boot" service. Thus I opted for creating a .NET Core Web API instead. I'm proud that I was able to make something useful while learning to use new technology and frameworks. I learned a lot about Xamarin.Forms, .NET Core and Azure Functions while working on this. My next goals for this project will be to be able to mark trips as "Completed". I would also like to implement some type of "gamification" with badges or achievements. I would also like to have a picture of the trip in the detail view to indicate what type of terrain the trip has."

A little bit about this site

Hello, I'm Corstiaan. I'm a .net developer from the Netherlands and I manage BuiltWithDot.Net. I created this site as a place where developers working with .net technology can showcase their projects and inspire other developers.

There's so much you can build with .net these days that I thought it would be nice to have a corner of the web dedicated to the breadth of .net. Enjoy!

What is the .net community working on?
