    This XAML team is awesome. Just on time now with the WinUI and .NET 5 arriving, I feel confident to use these technologies and have a great support even on the preview stage.

    I'd find it helpful if you could either add subtitles, or create a transcript of what's said in these videos.

    I'm not as young as I once was (anyone surprised at that?...) and my hearing is getting poor. Also being British I have some difficulty parsing these American accents (which is at least a partial explanation for why my hearing aids don't seem to help much). (Nothing against American accents, you understand, I have similar difficulties with some regional British accents.)

    I'm sure I can't be the only person who feels this way. But of course creating transcripts or subtitles has a cost that you may well not want to bear.

    Ok, in that case, just make sure you include links to where the topics discussed are documented.

    It is so cool to see binding errors window! So how do we make our ViewModels aware of these types of errors?
