      Thanks for the update. Though some of the sessions are basic, it is refreshing to review the material and the way the sessions are broken down and labelled makes it very easy to skip.

      Absolutely excellent videos! Bob Tabor, you're a great presenter and I thoroughly enjoyed going through this video series. I'm not a beginner at programming, but I am beginner with C#, Silverlight, and WP7 programming, and these videos gave me a good jumpstart and the confidence to begin creating WP7 apps.
      I will certainly sign up for taking your other classes on your web site, as I'm sure they will be just as useful for me!
      Thanks again.

      HOW CAN WINDOWS PHONE 7 INTERACT WITH AN ASP.NET MVC WEBSITE?
      Hi I would really like to know how I can make Windows Phone 7 play with an ASP.NET MVC website. I would suggest that some MS person or a geek would give us some examples of how to write an WP7 application or WP7 web client that interact with an ASP.NET MVC website.
      Could you write some WP7 stuff that plays with these popular and well known ASP.NET MVC tutorial websites (Nerddinner and TheBeerHouse):
      http://www.nerddinner.com/Home/About
      http://thebeerhouse.codeplex.com/releases/view/27519
      I have found a link for a guy who has already started this work:
      http://amazedsaint.blogspot.com/2010/04/bing-maps-odata-windows-phone-7-nerd.html
      I am very interested if anybody has further references about these matters: How WP7 can interact with an ASP.NET MVC website, so please let us know if you know anything!
      Thank you!

      @Rune Hansen: If you watch my teched talk on the robot cannon we did at mix, you can get a basic concept of how to interact directly with a web site / web service.

      So are you saying the video you linked to is instead of day 4 part 19?  If so, that's cool; just want to make sure I understand.

      I went to learnvisualstudio.net and did a search on windows phone 7 and found nothing.Are there aditional videos on windows phone 7.I think the examples are great and the price is just right for a years memebership.

      Mr. Tabor.

      I really enjoy this series of tutorials. I find it as one of the most professional tutorials on the net available today. I even consider to join LearnVisualStudio.NET.

      I know this is not really the best place to ask, but I hope for a short help.

      I did go throu the whole tutorial, and did myself the application aswell. All went great.

      The problem, I have, is that if i change the "layout" of the main page to panorama, somehow the ViewEdit page stops working.

      I get the  path must be a valid file name error on the

      using (var file = appStorage.OpenFile(fileName, System.IO.FileMode.Create))

      line. Same as i try to delete a file.

      What is interesting, in the panorama "setup" is that i get the files to be saved and even i can see them as on the pivot "setup". But as I click or select one of them I get to the ViewEdit page, but no data is updated. 

      I think there is some sort of problem or difference (pivot, panorama) in the line:

      fileName = NavigationContext.QueryString ["id"];

      If you have a short time, please consider to have a look at my problem.

       

      Thank you very much, and I wish you the best, and more successful videos like this.

       

      Best regards, Andrew.

      Hello Bob,

      Let me also add my sincere thanks for this series.  I am a retired IT guy from way back and have developed a major memory leak in my idle days, and so it was good to refresh some of the skills from a while back and layer on some new ones.  And this stuff is addictive as well as a lot of fun.

      Thanks again.

      Great job. I love the tutorials - really helpful and makes it easy! I've managed to go to the very end - it took me some time, but it was really great experience. I really enjoyed learning. I'd like to see homework more often, though... But, anyhow

      Fantastic videos.  Thanks for sharing!!!!
      I have a question - In one of the tutorials (not in this series) i read that the phone simulator is not identical to the phone itself and that it may be a little more powerful.
      Is there a way to simulate different phone configurations in the phone simulator?  Or am asking a dumb question. :-)

      when will day4part19_2MB_ch9.wmv be reaDY for download?

    • User profile image
      moorpipe

      I think there's no day 4 part 19. Comparing the series to the one on www.learnvisualstudio.net the only difference is the last video. On that site it is called "Day 4 Wrap Up, Next Tasks" (2m,43s); on Ch9 it is called "Where to go from here" (6m,56s).
      All other 63 video's are the same. So you can safely say the series is complete. The numbering of the last video on Ch9 is misleading.
