We’ve recently published some great end-to-end ASP.NET video training courses on the http://asp.net web-site.
Created by Pluralsight (a great .NET training company), these video courses are available free of charge and provide a great way to learn (or brush-up your knowledge of) ASP.NET Web Forms 4 and ASP.NET MVC 3. Each course is taught by a single trainer, and provides a nice end-to-end curriculum (from basic concepts to working with the new Entity Framework “code first” model to security, deployment, and testing).
Below are some details on the two free training courses we published this weekend (and links for how to watch them):
ASP.NET MVC 3 Training
This weekend we posted the final videos in a brand new 10 part ASP.NET MVC 3 training course taught by K Scott Allen. You can now watch the entire series for free on the http://asp.net/mvc page (it is on the left-hand side within the “Essential Videos” section):
Below is a breakdown of the 10 video modules in the ASP.NET MVC 3 series:
- Introduction (35 minutes)
- Controllers (35 minutes)
- Razor Views (45 minutes)
- Working with Data: Entity Framework Code First (39 minutes)
- Working with Data: Validation and Mapping (33 minutes)

You can find pointers to the entire series on the http://asp.net/mvc page.
ASP.NET Web Forms 4 Training
Dan Wahlin is developing a great course on ASP.NET Web Forms 4.
You can watch the series for free on the http://asp.net/web-forms page (it is on the left-hand side within the “Essential Videos” section):
Below is a breakdown of the 9 video modules in the ASP.NET Web Forms series:
- Introduction to ASP.NET (64 minutes)

You can find pointers to the entire series on the http://asp.net/web-forms page. We’ll be posting links to the final 3 videos in the series later this month.
Even More Content Coming
Keep an eye on the http://asp.net/web-forms and http://asp.net/mvc learning centers in the months ahead as we post even more textual and video training content. Each of the two learning centers now has a nice structured outline of content that you can use to quickly look things up as well as learn how ASP.NET works. We’ll be refining and extending the content even more in the weeks and months ahead.
Hope this helps,
