      Just finished the series.
      You did a great job presenting the lab, plus the extra bonus material you added.

    • srinath

      Sir, Thanks for the tutorials. I've been going through them . But there are so many things going on . I'm able to understand what is going on but when it comes to implementing in my project I'm don't know where to go. Do you have any tutorials where we have a target that we will achieve this and we will code entirely on our own not copying and pasting?

    • Clint

      @srinath: Have you tried the absolute beginner series for Windows Phone 8?  I had a direct part in that and unless you are directly grabbing code from our samples, you should be forced to code everything from the ground up.


      you are a good man for every one

    • Rizwan

      this is a good work for every one because your tutorial is every useful and benfit

    • Bigmachini

      This is going to be my next series. have watched all the rest am loving it. just got done with HTML with css3 now want to start on javascript. can't wait for the day channel9 will add the ASP.NET one for absolute beginners. That is the direction am heading.

      Thanx again for the good work... Keep it up, and keep changing lives the same way.

    • BobTabor

      @Bigmachini: I don't know that ASP.NET is going to happen ... at least, not something I'll be creating for Channel9 or Microsoft Virtual Academy (although I do have that content on my own website) however there are tons of videos and such available on  

    • Divyateja

      The way you present is simply awesome.I loved it like anything.Sir,But can u please let me get out of a problem which I have been facing since today's morning.When I try to browse online in visual studio for callisto and when I try to install it is jst showing something like

      "Could not install package 'Callisto 1.4.0'. You are trying to install this package into a project that targets '.NETCore,Version=v4.5', but the package does not contain any assembly references that are compatible with that framework. For more information, contact the package author."

      Can you please get me out of this?

    • BobTabor

      @Divyateja: Sorry, they broke Callisto.  You'll need to ask them for help on how to install it / fix the problem.  Ask Tim for help:

    • Eddie

      Hey Bob, for the SettingsFlyout (W8.1), how would create a Login UI and wire that up?

    • lilemam

      Hey Bob i need videos or any resources about Hub Apps and how to control their contents ? and i want to make my App in a different language not in English what should i do ?

    • BobTabor

      @Eddie: I'm sorry, that's not something I can help you with.

      @lilemam: Again, unfortunately, that's not something I can help you with.  A good search on the internet will probably yield the results you desire.
