To coincide with the release of the new InfoPath Developer Resource Kit/Training Materials, there is also a series of InfoPath/Office 2003 Webcasts (sorry, I posted some of these before, but I wanted to talk about the series as a whole. A second session of this series will be scheduled to allow easier attendance by our Asia Pacific developers; I'll post again when the dates are finalized.) To sign up for these, or any other webcasts, visit the Microsoft Events and Webcasts home.

The 8-Part Web Cast Series

The goal of these eight Web casts is to learn the key elements of building and deploying XML-based business process solutions using InfoPath and other Office 2003 applications. Using an enterprise scenario—the Sales Call Report and Contract Generation process—these Web casts will walk you through the elements involved in building an end-to-end enterprise solution. Together, these Web casts will show you how to use the InfoPath design environment and platform to create solutions that leverage Web services to interoperate with back end databases including BizTalk and SQL Server. We’ll cover the InfoPath form architecture, deployment model, object model and programmability in these detailed Web casts. We will also cover how to develop and deploy Office 2003 XML-based solutions including Word 2003, Excel 2003, and smart document solutions.

Update 1/23: The detailed webcast info is now up on the MSDN Office Developer Center, so I've moved the details from this post to this "article" but I'd recommend checking the Office Dev Center and/or the Webcasts home since it will have the most up-to-date info.
