Photoshop Will Get a 'Prepare as NFT' Option Soon

1 Share
Adobe is launching a system built into Photoshop that can, among other things, help prove that the person selling an NFT is the person who made it. It's called Content Credentials, and NFT sellers will be able to link the Adobe ID with their crypto wallet, allowing compatible NFT marketplaces to show a sort of verified certificate proving the art's source is authentic. From a report: According to a Decoder interview with Adobe's chief product officer Scott Belsky, this functionality will be built into Photoshop with a "prepare as NFT" option, launching in preview by the end of this month. Belsky says attribution data created by the Content Credentials will live on an IPFS system. IPFS (InterPlanetary File System) is a decentralized way to host files where a network of people are responsible for keeping data safe and available, rather than a single company (somewhat similar to how torrent systems work). Adobe says that NFT marketplaces like OpenSea, Rarible, KnownOrigin, and SuperRare will be able to integrate with Content Credentials to show Adobe's attribution information.

We’re less than 24 hours away from kicking off the 2021 Android Dev Summit, broadcasting live online on October 27 & 28. The summit kicks off on October 27 at 10AM PDT with a 50-minute technical keynote, The Android Show. You can tune in at, or watch on YouTube.

After the show, we’ll be posting 30+ technical sessions to the site as well as YouTube for you to watch at your own pace, from Material You in Jetpack Compose to Kotlin Flows in practice.

Two days of live, technical Android content

Over the two day event, we have a number of ways for you to tune in and hear your favorite Android development topics discussed live from the team who built Android. Got questions about Modern Android Development, Large Screens, or Material You? Ask them on Twitter now using #AskAndroid to get them answered live on the air. We’ll also host live Android Code-Alongs. Tune in to watch Android experts as they code, tackle programming challenges, and answer your questions live across Jetpack Compose and Compose for Wear OS.

Xamarin.Forms - How to use Fody property in MVVM

1 Share

 In this blog post, you will learn how to use Fody in MVVM in Xamarin.Forms App


Xamarin.Forms code runs on multiple platforms - each of which has its own filesystem. This means that reading and writing files is most easily done using the native file APIs on each platform. Alternatively, embedded resources are a simpler solution to distribute data files with an app.


Fody is a library for IL weaving (the process to manipulate/inject code in IL). Fody will update automatically our code for us to add new cool features.

Fody is Injects code which raises the PropertyChanged event, into property setters of classes which implement INotifyPropertyChanged.


  • Visual Studio 2017 or later (Windows or Mac)

Let's Start

Setting up a Xamarin.Forms Project

 Start by creating a new Xamarin.Forms project. You will learn more by going through the steps yourself.

 Create a new or existing Xamarin forms(.Net standard) Project. With Android and iOS Platform. 

Setup UI

Now, Create a UI for your requirement. I just created a simple UI for LoginPage


Normal Property Creation with Data Binding

The Data Binding is the connection between the XAML and ViewModel of your app. You use it to connect a control (ex: text) of your UI to your logic. Let’s assume that we have an Entry and we want to link it to our ViewModel.

Following code is as we use to create the view model property be like.



Install Fody

Install the following Nuget from Nuget Manager In your Visual Studio.

  1. Fody
  2. PropertyChanged.Fody
In your project install the Fody plugin (only in your PCL/.Net Standard project, you don’t need to install it in the Android, iOS, UWP projects

Fody NuGet


Add FodyWeavers.xml

Add FodyWeavers.xml file in your .net standard project.

Fody Properties

Now, Simply add property with { get; set; }. 



I hope you have understood how to use fody in MVVM in Xamarin.Forms App

Thanks for reading. Please share your comments and feedback. Happy Coding :)
