      The creation of a Hello World application is a little meaningless. The people on Channel 9 tend to be experienced developers so an application that makes full use of data access and implements the Async / Await pattern would be more useful.

      Hey Phil, this is a step-by-step series for beginners. That said, by Part 4, File Access and Pickers, you will learn how to call async/await for file IO and how to databind to properties of a file.

      Phil,
      Everyone has to start somewhere. Shouldn't Microsoft be one of the key places that beginners can find out how to get started? After all this is their product.

      I certainly have some students who will find this series useful.
