So we had a great response with these workshops, gave our ISVs a great opportunity to understand the process, what was involved and basically a roadmap on how to get your product certified and progressing into the Microsoft Partner Program as Certified or Gold Certified Partner, which also means you get access to more software and other benefits than you can shake a stick at. If you want to be kept informed next time we hold these workshops, jut send us an e-mail and we will let you know.
