It'll be a short posting day for me today as I get ready to head down to sunny Miami for a few days. Learn2Asp is providing free training webcasts for ASP.NET as well as the opportunity for free Visual Studio standard, a price reduction on MSDN Pro, and some other goodies. You can get to the webcasts here. They seem to be targetting crossover developers, as the material is tailored to 3 distinct areas: JSP devs, PHP devs, and ColdFusion developers.
The webcasts are too many to list (for being free, I was amazed at the width of scope of these 'casts). Here's the perks for attending three:
- Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2005 Standard Edition (Not for Resale)
- Five chapters of Programming ASP.NET 2.0 Core Reference, by Dino Esposito
- A 30-day hosting account to try out your custom Web applications
- Microsoft Developer Security DVD with how-tos, white papers, tools, webcasts, and code samples that demonstrate how to write more secure code
- A 50% discount on a Microsoft Certified Professional Exam so you can add your new skills to your resume
- A voucher that allows you to buy Visual Studio 2005 Professional Edition with an MSDN® Professional Subscription at renewal pricing (a $400 savings)
Found a post on how to install IIS7 on the latest build of Vista (5308), and wanted to do some staging for my stagnant personal site on my laptop (that has Vista installed), and decided to give it a whirl. Thanks, Dan Bartels for doing the writeup. That's some great site design on his page!
We were told to keep an eye on IISSEVEN.COM, and I certainly will.With this build, after going to the usual IIS snap-in under MMC, you'll notice a difference. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words...
