    I am really excited to start with Xamarin and thought this would be a good code-along. However, the code is changed off screen a lot with renaming of variables and other changes to the code - all without comment. I came here to see if I could download the source code, so I can see what changes were made. I am on video #7 and have an error stating 'DetailPageViewModel does not contain a constructor that takes 1 argument.' It's on the line: var detailVM = new DetailPageViewModel(selectedNote);

    End result - it is very frustrating trying to code along. Definitely a bad experience.
    Let me say something positive about the instructor, though. I am enjoying the concepts he is sharing. My issue is with the constantly changing code - edits made offline with no comment.
