We have a schedule of activities we are delivering to our UK early adopters of Vista and WinFX over the coming months. One of these is 3 days of training. We thought it would be fun to offer two seats on this training in Maidenhead to UK ISVs we currently are not engaged with - but who are as excited as we are about developing a future version of their application to take advantage of the great new features in Windows Vista and WinFX.

Please contact me if you are a developer in a UK Independent Software Vendor and you believe you would benefit from attending this course. Please say a few words about your solution, your interest in the technology and your plans to explore and adopt it. I will then do my best to ensure we get you plugged in to the right resources from Microsoft - including the 3 day training if it is a good match.
