    Hi :)

    Great initiative with a swift intro to the new webcoding structure!
    Thanks for the certification giveaways as well, I'm signed up and ready to go :)
    A suggestion for improvement on the screencasts: a higher resolution would be excellent as only the code (with the large font) is legible, while filenames, text-input in VS.net, etc. is hard to read, even in the High-resolution version of the videos!

    thanks again :)

    Kind regards - Jakob

  • highres vid and bigger font will be nice.

    after finish the video course, is it enough to take the 70-480 exam?

  • AriannaArianna

    It will be much nicer if you two don't compete with each other in the video. All I can see is the fight now.....

  • djtxdjtx

    Loving the videos so far. I can't take my eyes off those monitors, though - what setup is that?

    How come the video sounds are muted? could not here a thing"""

  • DavidDavid

    The downloads are extremely slow 175kbs. The only reason I am downloading is because the video was so choppy, due to buffering, that it was unwatchable. Once downloaded I am sure it will be a good course.

  • Guys, great course and great videos. However, I really think that you should either make 100% sure that the demos work OR show us some of your debugging techniques, which I think is also super important for a developer. Either way thanks for preparing this great course. Smiley

  • Wow Thanks Good Class about Semantic Structure HTML5

  • dayonikandayonikan

    great videos, these are really good jump starts for 70-480 exams

  • I am a web designer.

    Great videos.  I am almost done with second video.  I ran into a problem  When I run 'local machine,' I get an error.

    0x800a138f - JavaScript runtime error: Unable to get property 'getContext' of undefined or null reference

    Then, the app closes. 

    Would appreciate any help.

  • RahulRahul

    Very impressive videos... But

    One question is running in my mind, that if I don't have the win8 and VS12 so I could not run this source code.

    I am using Win7 and VS10. Please let me know if there is a way to see the source code examples.

    Many Thanks

  • rb25rb25

    Good idea but poorly executed. You actually released these videos to the public? Your very first demo doesn't work. Not very inspiring.

  • hi 

    great jobs. i am very excited for that .



  • Great job very well done for new designer.

  • KaleemKaleem

    Thanks for the course, however; I think this course is a bit boring because of too much talking for explaining a simple concept. Perhaps a good working example would have made it better.

  • Mohammed ElherroukiMohammed Elherrouki

    Hi there,

    Is it true that i can only schedule this exam in america? cause i live in holland.

    Thanks in advance!

    Basic audio, video controls demo didn't work. That's poor. You should have recorded another video for that purpose.

  • Nice training. Hope to see how fast it changes in Windows 8 with HTML5 CSS3 and Javascript.

    Great video.

  • barobaro

    Awesome video!
    Audio not playing, Video not playing...good job, preparing yourself guys;)

  • Excellent material. I hope you continue to post more.

  • Hi, firstly thanks a lot for very useful jump start, really helpful. How can i download all of videos from this course, in one go?, is there any way? 

  • Chor YCChor YC

    What a live show! They just skipped the demo with real claps and jumped to the end? Ha!

  • The broken audio and video demos reflect badly on this series.    By adding a closing tag, both examples work for me: 

    <audio src="/audio/hello.wma" controls ></audio>.  

    Oddly enough, the video worked without an explicit closing tag even though VS2012 gave me a warning when the AUDIO closing tag was missing.

  • Come on guys good intention but poorly demonstration ... Thanks anyway great idea this kind of training

  • thnkas it is very helpful!!

  • keitakeita

    Great job very well done.
    Is there a way to download all the videos together at one time?

  • vladvlad

    With all due respect, this is a pre-recorded presentation, and you do not bother to make sure that so much hyped <audio> and <video> tag demonstrations actually work.


  • JasonJason

    Hi All - the HTMLJMP promotion has ended but if you use this code you might still have an opportunity to get a free exam. HTMLMPN
    Not sure when it expires, but thought I'd pass it along.



    the video didn't play because maybe the "mp4" mimetype does not exist 


  • Alaa KamallAlaa Kamall


  • PrasadHonraoPrasad Prasad

    @Rahul:No, you cannot run it. These are Windows store app, so you need to have Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012 to run it.


  • This series of videos are a great way to help you prepare for Exam 70-480.The promo code HTMLJMP is available through 3/31/2013 while supplies last.

  • BrunoBruno

    I think that I figured out how it works. For me I put the audio and the video in separated section tags. I don't know why but when you put the audio and video tabs together (audio and video above or vice-versa) they don't work properly.

    I hope this will help you.

  • fadifadi

    thik you

  • JeffersonJefferson

    Hey guys.
    I enjoyed the videos but I think you should show more examples, because there are many more tags and you didn't teach

  • i wish there are subtitles for these videos
    How can i find one ??

  • MikeMike

    Utterly pathetic. Your audio and videos examples didn't work. So obviously, you should figure out why and re-record the whole thing, or at least that section and edit it in later. PATHETIC.

  • truqtruq

    please tell me free voucher code htmljmp and htmlmpn does not working can any one help me

  • truqtruq

    tell me free voucher code on nomanqureshi8@gmail.com

  • Kent SpamKent Spam

    The problem with the audio and video content is off course, if you guys haven't figured it already ;-), that the "CopyToOutputDirectory"-property is set to "Do not copy"-value, visible at time 00:12:43.

    Why MS have chosen this to be the default value and not "Copy if newer" is beyond me.
