      Wow, thanks for the warm welcome to everyone!  Makes all the hard work worth it.  Let me answer a few of the items mentioned above:

      @skkywalkker:  @Christian Bravo:  re: JavaScript ... they will be available very very soon.  I think the good folks at Channel9 wanted to space things out a little.  Smiley

      @straz: re: LVS ... (1) I'm waiting for VS11 to be officially released before I continue adding content.  I've created videos based on Beta's before and inevitably something changes, and (2) I am working on architecture/patterns/practices/agile/scrum/DDD/TDD/SOLID series ... it is such a massive topic that I needed to really feel like I could command it, so I've been heads down for weeks / months on this.

      Big mistake on using notepad Perplexed You should've used something like Notepad2 or Notepad++ or PSPad. Other than that - great stuff Smiley

      The reasons for notepad being a bad choice:

      - No code highlighting

      - Tabs are 8 spaces! omg!


      Microsoft: please fix the above

      Hi Bob,
      have missed you on LVS but I can you have been spending your time productively, great videos, as always. Looking forward to the JavaScript ones, any news about when they will be available?

    • User profile image
      BobTabor

      I wanted to thank all of you who said nice things ... you know who you are.  Smiley  Catching up with answers that require a bit more explanation ...

      @Antonio: Server outage ... launching 2.0 tomorrow or the next day.

      @pantera9: I don't think any of us are advocating you would use Notepad on a real project.  There are too many great (and free) tools, even directly from Microsoft!  But we wanted these videos to (1) have a long shelf life and not be impacted by different software versions, and (2) we wanted the barrier to entry to be extremely low ... I don't want absolute beginners to get stuck with installing anything more than what they absolutely must.  The tools you reference are great!  No "slight" intended, however they are not "Microsoft" and I felt like using them would trip up people who wanted to get started immediately.  Hope that makes sense ... I beg that you overlook this and continue through the series -- I'm hoping it is useful to you!

      @man: Please request that in the Feedback link at the bottom (footer) of this page.  The more often Microsoft hears it, I'm sure they will make it happen.  As you might imagine, there is a large cost (time, money) to add subtitles, but if they hear that request often enough Microsoft will make it happen (just my experience with peeps at Microsoft -- very responsive to what users want).

      @Paul Moss: JavaScript / jQuery videos have just been published on Channel9:

      I've never heard of Bob before and never visited this website before. Since I stumbled upon this series now it's my favorite place to be on the web until I've finished this course (and hope to finish many more) and absolutely love the way Bob teaches this and makes things simple and understandable. On a scale of 1 to 10 I think my knowledge was a small 2 and now I feel myself growing every day. Bob, if we ever meet, I owe you a beer!

      So thank you Bob for this free course.

      What I really do not understand is: why don't you post this course on your website? I am entitled to ask because I am a lifetime subscriber and there is no evidence of "latest" technology on LearnVisualStudio.NET since 2010.. maybe earlier.

      Last VS course was about VS2010.

      Last Web development: MVC3.

      Last RIA course: Silverlight 4 Level 1.

      You still have still a course "First impressions Visual Studio 2010 series". No Windows 8 development, no VS2012, no Silverlight 5, no MVC 4, no HTML 5.

      If I am missing something, please, please, forgive me and point me to the right web pages on LearnVisualStudio.NET. But if I am right just tell me "a lifetime subscription was a mistake". I made a lot of mistakes (like everybody), one more just don't make a difference.

      Again, sorry if I am wrong.

    • User profile image
      BobTabor

      @AngeloChiello: Hi, I will post this on LVS soon and it will be free for all to see.  It takes time to create the pages, upload the videos to a streaming server, and then money to stream it myself.  Regarding, many of those technologies have been out less than a month or two.  Visual Studio 2012 has been out for less than one week.  There are no MVC4 books even available yet.  Windows 8 hasn't been released yet.  Patience, my friend.  I'm just one guy, and I don't charge $20-$40 per month to hire dozens of authors (instead, I charge $50 for one year!).  Each video series is lovingly crafted like an artisan crafts a painting -- deliberately, with passion and thought.  I'll get to those topics eventually, but honestly?  There will come a point (perhaps you're already there) where you'll outgrow what I can offer you -- or at least, at the speed you require it.  Perhaps you're already there.  Sorry if that is an unsatisfying answer.  The fact of the matter is that these videos help me show the world what I do and allow me to stay in business.  So much more I could tell you ... perhaps this would be a conversation better served offline.  Feel free to email me personally.  Thank you! -- Bob

      Hey bob, i just want to start learning these tutorials,
      i have one doubt that whether i learn html (4) first then html5
      or should i directly start with html5 and css3.

    • User profile image
      BobTabor

      @Amolak: My advice is to jump right into HTML5.  In most cases, especially simple scenarios, you won't notice the difference.  Smiley  Just be sure to test your website in all browsers.  It is an in-excact science, unless you have $$$$$ to spend.

      @srinivasskc:

      "alt" means "alternative" and this attribute is used as a precaution in <img> tag. If the picture that is refered in the image tag is missing or the location of picture is not properly given in the image tag then at this moment the string(sentence) written inside the alt execute.

      Hope you understand. Smiley

      I have 2 questions,Bob.  I am just trying to use advice to be active learner

      Big Smile

      • The first question is why use windows notepad , while it increases frustration of beginners ? Yes, It removes the frustration of installation , but it adds frustration because it doesn't support line breaks of other OSes other than Windows ; e.g. in lesson  17 of this series , downloaded font-face kit files didn't show their line breaks only because they are not saved as windows style line break . Using  any other test editor will remove this problem , e.g : SciTE, notepad2 , notepad++ or Programmer's notepad .
      • The second question :  what are the free tools for HTML5 and CSS3 from Microsoft that you mentioned without naming ?  Can you name them,please?

      Hi Bob,impressed with your work and think that you have really helped all the beginners including me.
      I need you to do me a small favor.I am a freshman and am unaware of what C,C++ and C# is.But I want to develop apps for Windows Phone using your beginner series.Can I begin straight away or should I first learn C and then proceed to app development for Windows 7.Also what are the prerequisites for Windows Phone development.

    • User profile image
      BobTabor

      @Tanay Talesra: The Windows Phone series I created for Channel9 a few years ago is perfect for you.  It starts by assuming you know absolutely nothing about C# and through 60+ lessons, gets you to the point you can build a small app.  There are dramatic differences in C++, C and C# (despite their names).  Personally?  I think C# is the easiest.  If you're going to pursue an Software Engineering or related degree, you probably should focus on C++ because you're probably going to have to learn it at some point.  Best wishes!

      yours HTML, CSS and Java Script really helped me out a lot. but trust me, the PHP still not getting in.. :( but i guess if you gonna teach me, then it will not take much time to work well. i am not getting any good fundamental to advanced course of php that i can learn easily on my live working field.. so is there any videos that you made on PHP? really it will a great help for me sir..
      I am From Bangladesh, far across the place from you... but your teaching spread all over the world...

      Thank you Bob, for the Absolute beginners series. They are great.

      My machine is Win XP Pro. The Internet Explorer is 8. When I tried to upgrade the IE to IE 9, I found IE 10 is available. I was not sure what is the system requirement for the IE 10. Will it be compatible for my machine?

      Thank you,

      Misheil

    • User profile image
      BobTabor

      @Misheil: Unfortunately, I don't believe you will be able to install it.  See this article:

      http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9215791/Windows_Vista_No_IE10_for_you

      It seems that IE10 only works on Windows 7 and greater.

      However, for the purposes of this series, you can use the current version of *any* browser.  If Internet Explorer doesn't "give you the love", you may consider other browser vendors that do.  (Sorry, I've got to be careful what I say here.  Use your imagination.)  Hope that helps?

      Hi Bob

      waw! I think I am the only woman here, feeling a bit intimidated :), anyway I am starting from the very beginning, encouraged by my husband who is a web developer, well lets see how far I will go.

      PS: could you please recommend where I can find some page to do some practice, exercises for a example? will help me a lot(I find a bit abstract)
      Thanks

    • User profile image
      BobTabor

      @Adriana: The great thing about software development is that it's a meritocracy: nothing matters except your knowledge and skill.  There's no personal politics in software development ... the computer discriminates against us all equally.  Smiley

      You may want to briefly jump to the very end of this series ... in the final video, I suggest a few things you can do to build your skill.  Find any web page (start with a simple one!) and try to re-create it from scratch.  JUST FOR PRACTICE copy the images down from the original web page (right-click, Save Image As ...) and then write the HTML5 and CSS3 yourself, not looking at what the original author did.  After you've challenged yourself for a few hours, undoubtedly you'll get stuck and then you can look at how the original developer created that given page.  There may be a lot of JavaScript in the page for things like tracking or other dynamic functionality, but ignore that and only look at the HTML5 and CSS3.  Websites for small businesses might be a good place to start, OR purchase a SIMPLE HTML5 template (for under $10) from here:

      http://themeforest.net/category/site-templates/personal

      ... to see if you can re-create it, or modify it, or just understand what and why they did what they did.

      But yeah, perhaps I should create a series of "challenges" for HTML5 / CSS3 developers to learn specific techniques.  Good idea.

      Best wishes to you!  Stick with it ... baby steps and patience.  No one learns this stuff in a few days.  It takes weeks, months, even years to master it a little at a time.

      Hi Bob ! I am writing you from Montevideo, Uruguay. I wanted to appreciate all this videos you have done (I am writing you at the series introduction one, but I am currently watching video number 7).

      They are very understandable and enjoyable as well and that is magnificent, particularly when it comes to a junior developer as I am. Information tecnhnologies are my life. I am dedicating my life to Software Engineering. These videos are very helpful for my next Microsoft exam 70-480 preparation.

      Thank you again,keep it up !
      PS: By chance, is there any set of videos also published by you refering perhaps subject like developing web applications using asp.net with C#?

      I have bought a book from amazon, but it would be very nice to watch some good stuff about this technology and language in particular.

      Regards !

      As fars as ASP.NET videos go, I have some of that on my personal website, and will be adding even more in the summer.  Check it out.

      I am disappointed because I did not see Closed Captioned settings.  Can Microsoft people able to add captions to the free online courses?  Whom can I contact to?   If Microsoft adds captions to the free online courses, then it will help deaf/hard hearing IT professionals to improve their technical skills.

      @jumpingjoe57: I definitely understand your concerns and I completely agree.  And in a brief chat with the folks at Channel9, it's on their radar.  However, I don't work for Microsoft so I don't know more than that.  The Feedback link in the bottom / footer area of each page is where you will get their attention.  Others have asked for this too.  Best wishes in your job search!

      Bob,

      Thanks for putting this together. I have been working with Visual Basic since Ver. 1.0 (I was almost a kid back then and I am 63 now) and bought the first version of Visual Studio that followed later. I have watch the continued improvement of Microsoft development products over the years and have to say I am very impress with the latest VS additions. I have been reluctant to "upgrade" myself but recently I have been using VS 2012, mostly the web developer, and have discovered some changes in HTML elements for HTML 5 and Cascading Style Sheets that I was not aware of while in my reluctant mode. I started writing code like I always have and I kept seeing errors pop up for the <center> element. It took me some browsing forums to discover <center> has been replaced by CSS settings. Since I have started using the new HTML 5 and CSSs I am still having some problems getting a few things to center on a page without <center>, especially ASP.NET Wizards, but I am hoping your tutorials will help me understand the new arrangements better.

      Thanks for lending a hand to an old dude that wants to get up to speed!

      @DavidDilley: Thanks for watching and writing.  Yes, the center tag is a prime example of what I talk about in this series ... the intent of HTML5 changed dramatically from where it began.  If you can think of the computer programming principle of "separation of concerns", then it will make your transition easier.  Ask yourself "Did this old tag represent CONTENT or DESIGN?"  If the answer is "design", then there's probably a replacement for it using CSS3.  Good luck!

      This is fantastic.. I just created my first webpage. Typed along with Bob. Missed the closing tag for <a href> and ended up making the whole page a hypertext. After a bit of struggle and re examination, I finally continued on. Thank You again Bob. I hope I don't stop learning this time and continue on.

      hiiiii............Bob,

      Thanks for putting this together. I have been working with Visual Basic since Ver. 1.0 (I was almost a kid back then and I am 63 now) and bought the first version of Visual Studio that followed later.

      Oh no! There are no subtitles/closed captions...
      @Bob,
      I wish there will be closed captions just like HTML5 & CSS3 Fundamentals Development for Absolute Beginners (http://channel9.msdn.com/Series/HTML5-CSS3-Fundamentals-Development-for-Absolute-Beginners) soon

      @MagusLimper: subtitles are a hard thing to do right, the Channel 9 team is looking into it but wants to be sure it is done right.

      @charles king: a Channel 9 account? No need to apply, just click the 'sign in' link in the upper right area of the page, sign in with your Microsoft Account (or create one), pick a profile name for Channel 9 and you're done.

      Hey bob just a just had a question .. what's the difference between </tag> and <tag/> .. when i used second one to close it didn't render the things properly !

    • User profile image
      Amey023

      @srinivasskc: alt is the description of an image for eg. if your browser cannot render the image for some reason .. a text in the alt attribute will act as its placeholder .. Bob also told it would be used by screen readers by i did try it out with screen reader but my narrator wasn't able to tell me what is it ...

      @Amey023: <tag /> is a self enclosing tag meaning that you don't have to use the </tag> style.  It can't be used for everything, but it is convenient most of the time.

      I have to say that I have found your teaching style is extremely easy to follow, especially compared to other coding schools online. It helps a great deal that along the process of coding, you explain the concept behind what were coding, and that adds more value to this learning experience. I really appreciate it! :D

      Hi srinivasskc,

      As per your question first you would like to know what is singled tag and paired tag.

      Singled tag: Ending tag which ends with / after the tag name with in the tag itself is Singled tag.
      Ex: <img src="#"/>

      Paired tag: Starting tag and ending tag will be seperate and the / will be before the tag name is called paired tag.
      Ex:<b></b>
