Day 1 Homework Assignment

3 minutes, 23 seconds


Right click “Save as…”

Congratulations! You've learned the basics. Now it’s time to flex your newfound knowledge, borrow from the concepts you’ve learned thus far, and write a simple application. You'll save the world by allowing a mobile user to type in a special sequence of numbers every 108 minutes. If you get stuck, watch just enough of the next video to get un-stuck.

    Thanks for the homework!  Should have made it a bit harder though.  Took me 2 minutes.  Probably because you are awesome at explaining everything earlier :)  Cheers.

  • It took me a while to complete this homework assignment because time went forward and back a few times.

    Here is my code, any good? :)
    namespace Hello_World{  
     public partial class MyFirstXamlPage : PhoneApplicationPage    { 
           public MyFirstXamlPage()        { 
            private void button1_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)        {
                if (checkCode(secretCode.Text))
                    setText(outputText, "YOU SAVED THE WORLD");
                     setText(outputText, "YOU KILLED THE WORLD");      
            private Boolean checkCode(string theCode)        { 
               if (theCode == "42 333 495 4493 293")            { 
                   return true;          
                }            else            { 
                   return false;          
            private void setText(TextBlock textBlock, string textInput)        {
                textBlock.Text = textInput;
