  1. Dear Mike- You created the best WCF videos in small nuggets. Maybe 10 years back. I wish you uploaded that to Youtube or something. Just cannot find them :(.

    1. Hi,

      Yes, I did make those videos!

      I just moved my blog site and the post referencing those videos is still here: https://mtaulty.com/2005/12/14/m_5656/ but it seems like the MSDN team broke all the hyperlinks to the content.

      I don’t have the raw video files for these any more I’m afraid. Sorry to not have put them somewhere permanent, my fault but I don’t think that at the time that I made them I saw them lasting for as long as perhaps they have!



  2. Hey Mike – awesome reading through your blog. Have you done anything with Azure IoT Hub? Could be cool to see some project with the Raspberry Pi, IoT Hub and controlling / consuming the data from Windows phone at home or out and about. 😉

    1. Sure, it’s on my list of things to do :-), I’m just a bit tied up with a bunch of other stuff right now but it’s very do-able.

    1. Hi,

      Thanks for the feedback. Those videos are a little old at this point and, unfortunately, I lost the source code for them quite a while ago.

      Apologies for that, but all that’s left is whatever is recorded on the web.


  7. Hi Mike,
    I’m playing with SwitchTo2DViewAsync() proposal to switch between Unity Holographic view and XAML 2d views.
    But I received an error when I call
    coreView2d = CoreApplication.CreateNewView();

    I can’t construct my own 2d view.

    Debuger told me something like that after call CoreApplication.CreateNewView();
    “Unable to cast object of type ‘Windows.ApplicationModel.Core.CoreApplicationView’ to type ‘Windows.ApplicationModel.Core.ICoreApplicationView5’.”

    Any suggestion?

    thanks in advance,
