@Ingrid: Please send me your files and I'll take a look at them. I have a Mac (actually, about 6 or 7 ... I'm using one right now!) and I'm sure we can figure this out. Make sure you collect them together in the same folder structure (keep any sub-folders that may contain other files like images ... try to keep it as close to what you have right now on your system), right-click (Command-click) on that folder and select Compress ___ from the context menu. Then email to me: email@example.com
@Changweihua: Hmm... I really don't know. Sorry ... I've never tried. I would recommend asking here:
@rictersmith: Did you ever figure this out? Perhaps the WP7 doesn't support the same API? Did you get compilation errors?
@khanh le: Do you want to control the camera OR allow the user to select a photo from the camera / photo picker thingy?
@Daniyal: Have you attempted writing a loop in C# that continues to call the play method?
@tullacs: Thank you for the very nice note Much needed at the moment. :)
re: syntaxes ... there's definitely a lot of different languages and terms floating around out there.
HTML - This series
HTML Shortcodes - I'm willing to bet this is in reference to shortcodes in a content management system like WordPress. You create "short cuts" as a theme developer to make it easier for your customers / users to add complex sequences of HTML. I've done this myself .. it's not so hard, and I'm not even really a Wordpress / PHP developer. You can hack your way through it.
PHP - A very popular scripting language for server-side web development. Unfortunately, I only know enough to be dangerous. As a Microsoft developer, I prefer ASP.NET.
Now, you want a "comparative studies" ... I don't think I've ever seen an article / book / video about this. Or are you looking for an "introduction to everything I might ever come up against in web development"? That might be interesting, actually.

@alanclesio: Nope, they wanted me to simply update the series using the latest version and I wanted to fix some problems that were reported to me over the years. Same basic "scope", example are the same for the most part, etc. Thanks!
@Alfred: Great question. The only reason I think it's necessary is so that you can make sure your data is presented and styled correctly. Personally, I like that. But if you're not worried about that or you don't mind running the app a bunch of times to make sure the data is in there correctly, then you can ignore this.
@BrentMorrisRTP: Sorry, I'm not sure what file blocking issue you're running into. I've never had that problem. Are you running with admin privileges?
@fogpotion: I'm willing to bet your reference to the CSS file is incorrect. That, or you have a caching issue in your web browser. Clear your cache and refresh.
@Fogpotion: Sorry, these lessons were created BEFORE Windows 8 was released.
@Ingrid: Make sure the PATH in your <img src=""> are pointed correctly. I cover this in more depth in the next lesson or two (it's been a long time). Download my code and make sure it works for you, then look at the src I used to reference the correct paths. Good luck!
