This week my teammate John Bristowe and I are participating in the Microsofties in Residence Training (MiR). It's a five-day Silverlight training for Microsoft internal designers and developers. A designer is paired with a developer, so in our case I'm the designer and John is the developer. First a day and half is instructor led training, and the rest is hands-on project time. The goal is to finish a project at the end of Day 5. It's a quite intense training considering we need to finish a project from concept to completion in just 5 days.
John and I have an extra challenge because he injured his foot during our offsite last week and wasn't able to come to Redmond for training in person. We are collaborating remotely. See the picture above, I'm in Microsoft headquarter at Redmond, and John is working from his home at Calgary. This is actually a real-world situation that many designers and developers face when collaborating on projects. We used Live Meeting for John to participate in the class virtually (see below). He can see through my web camera on what's going on in the room and talk through the audio conference bridge, which was connected with the Live Meeting. As we going forward, we'll use more Live Meeting's sharing capabilities. I want to share our training experience as it progresses this week. I hope you find our learning from the training useful as well.

That's it for today. See you tomorrow!
