My first Pluralsight course (HTML for the XAML Developer) as gone live

For the past 2 months I have been working on my first Pluralsight course, and it has finally gone LIVE.  I had a great time building this course and I hope it shows.  In fact I enjoyed it so much I am currently working on my 2nd course.

This course, HTML for the XAML Developer is intended to help XAML based developers (WPF or Silverlight) make the transition to HTML development.  I take you, the viewer, through the exercise of porting an existing XAML based application over to be an HTML based one.  In this course I used many frameworks but I tried to keep it as vanilla as possible.  I know there are 100 different ways to to build HTML sites and even more tools and libraries but I really wanted to focus on many of the basics.

I hope everyone who watches will enjoy the course.
