Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Use the exercise files, part of Visual Studio 2015 Essentials 07: Understanding Project Types.
- If you are a member of lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this title. I've copied the exercise files to my desktop. In order to use the exercises in the folder, you'll have to have Visual Studio 2015 installed. You'll also need to have the Universal apps components and the Xamarin and Apache Cordova components installed. There are instructions on how to install these tools in the course. Most of the examples here have a number that corresponds to the chapter where this example lives. If I look in this Web Templates folder, you'll see this solution file, and a number of other folders in here.
Some of the exercise files, like this folder here, have a Done folder and a Start folder. In these cases, you'll typically open the Start project first. We're looking for this sln file. The sln stands for solution. I can double click on this file. And if I have Visual Studio installed, it will launch Visual Studio, and load the project. Now that you've seen how to open the exercise files, let's get started.
