    Set aside the irritating audio noise now and then -- this is still an excellent presentation of UX showcasing some very interesting variations of "beyond data grids" like transforming a smile based on a -100 to +100 scale.

    I like the dialogue form and demo without slides. THX Billy and Robert.

    And to Billy: Yet another great UX presentation, you always inspire a humble developer like me!

    It's a shame the audio issues spoiled the video somewhat because I find this stuff interesting.

    @MicKr:@JohnLudlow:Hey all, what's wrong with the audio? Is there a specific part where the audio is going bad or is it the entire talk? I have the original files so I can take a look to see what's wrong, but currently I don't hear anything.

    Ok I caught it. Looks like the guests mic is hitting his skin. Nothing I can fix there, sorry about that!

    @golnazal: Billy's mic hits his shirt occasionally. My volume is a bit low. It is annoying, but hopefully it doesn't ruin the video.

    @rogreen:yeah that's it.

    It doesn't entirely ruin the video but sometimes Billy was answering a question you asked, and I couldn't hear the question so the answer lacked context, that kind of thing. It's still worth persevering watching the whole video, though.

    I figured it probably wasn't fixable other than re-recording the whole thing.

    @JohnLudlow: If you point me to particular instances of that I can probably tell you what the question was.

    @rogreen: I can't remember what it was right now. If I get time I'll watch it again.

    It's just one of those unfortunate things that happen, really.

    The audio issues are minor and doesn't really distracted too much from a great conversation on UX and Xaml Data templates.  Billy is great in the video with sharing his thoughts  and experience.   The explanation on the user's need for excel like grid for displaying data was good.

    I read the comments before watching the video, so I was prepared for variations in the audio. Knowing about that before watching it I think made it easier. I had no problems with it.

    Great video, Robert and Billy!
