    Howdy,

    It says that the demo will be linked with the slides in the presentation but I'm not seeing that anywhere ... am I missing it or has it been posted somewhere?

    Thanks

    Anyone having trouble with the streamed and/or downloadable recordings? It seems the files are corrupted (skips in sound and image).

    I tried all of them (except the mid-quality WMV), with several players (windows media player, quicktime, mplayer), streaming with multiple browsers.

    you're right. I have also the same issue with the sound skipping. It's sad because the content is great!

    John,

    Do you know of any examples or blogs out there that talk about doing this without Entity Framework?  I have a different database backend and there are problems with their provider and our structure of our DB system.  I'm working to get that resolved but wondering what the best alternative is.

    I have an existing C# business layer/data layer that I can wrap webservices around but that doesn't make it easy to change out with EF if/when we get that working.

    Thanks

    John,

     

    Can you update this video with the latest changes to EF 4.1 and VS 2010 SP1?

     

    Thanks

    Please fix the videos. Looks like every single video is broken. Even the stream is nearly unwatchable.

    Tried to watch the video but the audio cutting out on the WMV files was unbearable. The mp4 files stop at about 9-10 seconds in, apparently corrupted. Would LOVE to watch these if they could be fixed?

    It seems that many of the videos from PDC10 are corrupted. We downloaded the "Chirp", "Code First" (EF) session. We wasted almost 2 gig of bandwidth trying to get a viewable copy.

    BTW, They stopped comments on that video... anyone know where the source code is for that?
