Last year Microsoft held a Web Cast series for aspiring architects that was attended by over 1200 individuals and covered a number of strategies that can help developers and IT professionals to transition to the architect roles.

The Aspiring Architect Series 2008 builds on last year’s content and covers a number of topics that are important for architects to understand. You can find the 2007 series Webcasts at: http://blogs.msdn.com/mohammadakif/archive/tags/Aspiring+Architects/default.aspx.

We are hopeful that you will find the upcoming series to be a very useful investment of your time.
