  • Conditional Logic in JavaScript - 06

    @Asenchuk: Yes, if not all of them, then at least the first several.  Ultimately, you will want to watch them all, but only the basics of HTML / CSS are required for this JavaScript course.  Good luck!  You can do it!

  • Writing your First JavaScript Application - 02

    @hemantb: Could you show me your code?  All of it?  Use the "Insert Code Block" icon in the reply text box.  Thanks.

  • Branching with the If . . . Then . . . Else Decision Statement - 06

    @Lee: Hi Lee, I might have an extra Console.WriteLine() in there I'm guessing.  Otherwise, I can't imagine why that would happen.  But I would say this ... we're learning the Visual Basic language ... you probably won't be writing many Console style applications in real life ... unless you're an old school Zork enthusiast.  Smiley

    Also, I think Channel9 is working on captions this year, so that should help even further.  Thanks for the kind words, and best wishes as you continue through this series!

  • Part 2: Installing Windows Phone SDK 8.0

    @enno: You can try, but based on what you describe I kind of doubt it.  Good luck!

  • Part 14: Binding to Real Data at Runtime

    @Anh Duong: I believe this was a timing issue, if I recall.  The headers and the data bound to the tiles loads at different moments / events in the lifecycle.  I had to explicitly call the Load() to get the titles to load at the right time, otherwise, they would no appear.  Try that, experiment, and see what I mean.  I'm not sure how to explain it beyond that.  Hope that helps! 

  • Part 35: Where to go from here

    @Abdallah: You'd have to ask Nokia about that.  Don't know.

  • Channel 9 Content for Beginners

    @TonyBoySP: Sorry, no.

    @GlassAgate: Actually I'm not in Redmond ... I am in Dallas, TX.  I don't actually work for Microsoft.  True, they gave me a few chickens and ears of corn for these video series.  Smiley  However, they don't tell me anything.  At all.  Ever.  In fact, you may know more than I do because I don't pay attention to the gaming side.  I think the best opportunities for .NET developers is in enterprise software development which is my background.

    As far as LearnVisualStudio.NET goes the Visual Basic content on LVS stopped at version 2005 because, frankly, with rare exception nothing has changed from a beginner's perspective and because I decided to only teach C# on that site from now on.  I've got to draw the line somewhere and there's just too much content to cover to give both C# and VB the attention it needs.  Most jobs I see are looking for C# developers and I want to help my clients get better jobs.  It's as simple as that.

    Hope that helps!

  • Part 11: Working with JSON Data

    @Mahwish: Hi, I think you'll find the answer to that in lessons 13, 14 and 15.  Also, I had to stare at that class for a long time to really understand the relationships between the shape of the data, how it was deserialized into an object graph, and how that object graph was bound to.  I recommend you spend a few hours just really looking at each line of code in the SampleDataSource.cs to see those connections so that you can begin to imagine how to tweak it for your own needs.  That's the only way to really learn what's going on.  Hope that helps!

    i am using grid template for window store app development in which all data is bind with SampleDataSource.cs . How we can implement json in that. Means how we will bind it with our ROOT Object class and retrieve result from it .

  • Part 1: Series Introduction

    @bavasanja: Hi, did you experience that while following along in this video?  If so, please don't worry about it ... we'll re-write the entire app from scratch in this video series.  If you experienced this problem while following along in this series, be sure to post this in the comments related to the video you were watching when it popped up so that can help me help you.  Thanks!

  • Part 2: Installing Windows Phone SDK 8.0

    @bill: I had a problem with Windows 8.1 beta that sounds similar.  Had to disconnect a secondary SSD drive just to get it to boot.  Craziest thing.  I wonder if the two issues are somehow related.  Anywho, glad you were able to figure it out!
