We just launched a set of 3 e-Learning clinics covering core components of the .NET 3.0 framework including Windows Presentation Foundation (formerly Avalon), Windows Communication Foundation (formerly Indigo) and Windows Workflow Foundation. If you are a guru with .NET 3.0 then these clinics probably are not for you, however if you are familiar with .NET 3.0 or you have no idea why you should care about .NET 3.0 then check them out.

Here's my one liner's about why you should care about these technologies

  • WPF - Create incredible user interfaces that truly push the limits and have a highly customizable look and feel.
  • WCF - One API for all your distributed communication needs, say goodye to having to learn a host of technologies that basically do th same thing.
  • WF - Visually design business procesess within your apps and leverage a robust worfkflow execution engine.

You can get the whole set here....
