  • JavaScript Functions - 07

    @Tyler: Actually, we have fixed this bug.  Download this and apply this patch to the existing video:



  • Part 3: Writing your First Windows Phone 8 App

    @Shayne: Could you show us some code ... the entire event method where you're attempting to play the sound?  I'm betting you're relying on an event to fire that doesn't ALWAYS fire ... some events around re-activation (Launch, Navigate Away, Back, Close, Launch, Close, etc.) only happen in certain scenarios.

  • Working with Paragraphs and Text - 05

    @keikomushi: Awesome feedback.  Thank you.  I'd love to ask which courses you've taken, but I suppose that wouldn't be polite (for their sake)  Smiley  Anywho, glad this course helped fill in a few gaps.  Best wishes to you!

  • Part 4: Introduction to XAML

    @reza farhang:  Yeah, mid-quality is the lowest unfortunately.  This is more of a Channel9 / company issue than a Bob / screencast guy issue.  To get Microsoft's attention, you should add that feedback ... see link in the footer of each page (below).  As of now, you could let it run for a while OR could grab the MP3 and listen along with the text.  I realize that's not idea, but at least you'll be able to get something out of it.  I tried to add screenshots at key moments.  Hope that helps, even if it is an unsatisfying answer.  Sad

  • Part 35: Where to go from here

    @Thomas Busch: Well, I should have known ...


  • Part 35: Where to go from here

    @Thomas Busch: Hey, we can still be friends ... until the playoffs.  Tongue Out  I guess we're in different conferences now (?) so it may not matter anymore.

    re: SharePoint development ... whew.  Only so many hours in a day.  I looked at it once upon a time, but getting a SharePoint dev environment up and running hurt my head.  I know nothing about domain controllers, active directory and all that madness required just to get it working.  I don't want to learn that stuff ... so, unless I can find a hosted solution somewhere where I could provision a new environment in minutes and not worry about the networking side of things, I would say "probably not".  (Is there such a magical place?  Please let me know!)

    However, thanks for your interest and best wishes to you!

  • Creating Your First HTML5 Web Page - 02

    @Oscar Salgado: Thanks for the nice note Oscar!  Glad this is helping it all click for you.  Warm regards, Bob

  • Creating Your First HTML5 Web Page - 02

    @PEDR0MEJI4: I think you're being WAY too kind with your comments, but I'll take it.  Smiley  Thank you and good luck as you push forward in this series!

  • Where to Go From Here - 21

    @rajat0802: I've been asked this question several times a day in various forms for the past 12 years.  My answer has changed over time.

    The answer is simple: you're not going to learn purely through videos or even reading books or websites alone.  You need a real project to work on.  This can be for someone else or one of your own creation.  So, figure out some website, some business, some game to create ... then go and build it.  (a ) This will DRIVE the learning process ... i.e., you will be forced to research options to solve a given need ("I want this to update from the server without a full page request"), select one out of many possible solutions available ("It looks like jQuery can do this ... I like that better than using the ASP.NET Web Forms Ajax Controls") and thereby learn the truly important skills that an instructor may overlook.  

    So, don't ask ME what you should learn.  I should ask YOU "what do YOU want to build"?  And then I'll follow up with "Why are you talking to me?  Go build it!"  Big Smile

  • Part 35: Where to go from here

    @grsbanks: Wow, geez, thanks!  Glad the videos helped you get those kinds of results.  That's exactly the kind of thing I believe the Phone team was hoping for when they asked Clint and I to build this content.  Thank you!
