MacAir become too slow after installing latest versions of Xcode, Visual Studio Mac and Mac OS

Hi Everyone,
I am using MacBook Air (13 inch, early 2015) with configuration
Processor 1.6Ghz Dual-Core Intel Core i5
Memory 8gb 1600 MHz DDR3
Startup disc Macintosh
Capacity 128 GB
After updating to OS Catalina 10.15.7, visual studio Mac 8.7.8, Xcode 12.0.1, Android SDK to latest version, mac become too slow and I tried to clean up caches, junk files and other used files from Mac and I do have around 40GB free space but it’s taking few hours to build a xamarin project using visual studio Mac. Could someone please advice me to speed up the mac to work on Xamarin projects ?
Thank you in advance!
