OK, so it's Monday, and you are thinking "man... I've got nothing really pressing to do, and I have read my MSDN magazine cover to cover... wish there was some way I could see some of the latest stuff for my upcoming project."
That's exactly what we created DevComm5 for. DevComm5 is 5 weeks of free .NET training to help you get ready to use the technology in Visual Studio 2005 and .NET 2.0 today.
To register, visit the Service Providers Developer Training site.
We've had 2 events already, covering Visual Studio Team System, Visual Studio 2005 IDE enhancements, IIS6, web services, and ASP.NET 2.0. There's still time for you to register for the upcoming events!
If you attend all 5 of the sessions, there will be a giveaway on April 17th for a Palm Treo 700w and an XBox 360. If you aren't able to make it to all 5 sessions, then come for the sessions that interest you... there are still lots of great giveaways during the sessions.
