Terrific CodeChat - great follow-up after the 3 day Jump Start from last week. For anyone that didn't attend, check out the recording that should show up on MVA in the next week or so. Best Jump Start I've attended so far. Thanks too, for the pointer to the OneNote API in this session.
[18:34] Ran into what sounds like a similar issue.
3 x Surface Two Pro 2s
3 x Rosewill 4 Port Super Speed USB 3.0 hub (each plugged into Surface Pro 2 USB port)
3 x Microsoft 5000 keyboards and mice
3 x WD "My Passport Ultras"
One mouse acted as described in "Sticky/jumpy mouse cursor"
Swapped hubs - problem followed hub.
Problem may have been USB 3.0 noise related.
"... project Rowdefinitions is missing from the Lesson04_Code.zip file. Included are: StarSizing, StackPanelExample, GridsRowsAndColums and AlignmentAndMargins."
Unless I overlooked something, it appears that project Rowdefinitions is still missing from the Lesson04_Code.zip file at this link: http://absolutebeginner.codeplex.com/downloads/get/835271
It's not a show stopper since the code is available above. However, it could be confusing if someone's looking at the Codeplex download, "Lesson04_Code.zip."
With thanks to Bob, Matthias, and Larry for a first class series.
Bob, your Absolute Beginner Series are a great resource for anyone just getting started and for us old dawgs trying to learn new tricks. Much appreciated - thanks.
PS: Including the PDF text to accompany video lessons is a nice addition. The text helps reinforce the video content and also provides a convenient reference.
Haven't had a chance to follow all the links above, so at the risk of being redundant...
You might also want to check out the "Building Apps for Windows Phone 8.1 Jump Start" over at Microsoft Virtual Academy. MVA WP8.1 Jump Start
It's a two and a half day "Live" presentation by Andy Wigley and Matthias Shapiro. If today's session was any indication - day two and a half will be super. The sessions are being recorded. If you missed today, you can always pick up the stream once it's available.
