Hey,

I was wondering if you could cover marshalling and how to develop plugins in your book? It is sooo hard to to find comprehensive or easy to understand tutorials/materials. I was trying to access the native calendar on Android and/or IOS to save events from the application, but I could not do it. I google for day, but still no luck. I did a little digging to understand how to use native code, but I couldn't quite grasp it. I don't know where is EKEvent and what params does it takes, etc..

Keep up the good work!

Unfortunately this will not be something that the book covers. We do have an appendix that covers create custom UI controls that will be included in the book (some of the techniques can apply to the creation of plugins). I would suggest if you have some specific questions the NativeScript forums are a good resource: https://discourse.nativescript.org/
