      Excellent XAML code demos.  Covers Grid, List, Flip views.  I know very little about XAML and this session helped to raise my awareness considerably.  I have it tagged to watch again.  Joe has a very upbeat presentation style.  Great job Joe!

      Didn't work for me in Chrome either. But in FireFox it rocked. I'm running Vista x86

      I have a question? I'm good with C# and visual basic, now is it necessary for me to learn XAML, can't I build apps the way I did with VS '10 , all the grid designing with the IDE?
