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)
