Crash Course in SceneGraph available on GitHub

Hello everyone, at work I wrote a course to get new hires up to speed on Roku and SceneGraph, and I made it available on github. 
This represents the class I wish I had when I started on Roku.
Let me know if you find it helpful.

Thanks for the feedback. I need someone to write a guide on how to edit Markdown, ha ha. Even GitHub's own Atom editor doesn't preview GitHub MD correctly.

Does it play an xml feed off my web domain?

@blackhawk the course is written to use a fake JSON feed you host locally. You are welcome to modify it to use XML. Personally everything I deal with at work is JSON so I went with what I know. The intent of the course is to demonstrate the basic principles of an app.

Re: Crash Course in SceneGraph available on GitHub

This is amazing. Thank you so much, just downloaded it and am going to use it as my main form of documentation right now. 

@tim_beynart (and/or anyone else) one thing I see often in the JSON scene graph examples are .json files directly in the app rather than a dynamic retrieval of JSON from an API. Is this example available anywhere, because I can't seem to find it on the forums or in the SDK...
