Well, if you have gotten this far in the series, you’ve probably realized I’ve gotten my articles and video’s a little out of sync.  The video attached here goes through the full process of building an application from scratch while adding a navigation page.  The process was somewhat explained in the previous article.  I’ve kept the title the same because that is what the video actually shows.

I won’t go through all the details again, however, what you will get at the end is a new speakers page which is just another tab on the home page that looks like the following.


In the next section, we will go through adding a SpeakerPageTemplate to style it and have it show up with actual pictures and hyperlinks.

    Ironically, I found this page while searching for a review of SMEStorage. I was looking over their site and it certainly does look like an interesting service. Do you know anyone who has used or reviewed it? I’d like to know how well it performs for a “real” user.

    The study shows the same trend as this cloud computing infographic.

    Well put, Dave. I’ve been worried about this myself for years, which is why I haven’t started using cloud-based apps much when I’ve been able to avoid it.
