One of the charters of my team is to make sure that we provide collateral for developers to get up and running with a program called Metro—an early adoption program for ISVs (to sign up for Metro or get more information, you can email metroreq@microsoft.com). Part of this program is creating things like training videos, Hands-on labs, and source-code; all for the developer to get up to speed quickly and efficiently with SharePoint and Office 2010. (We also cover CRM and UC.)

One of the first publicly-facing things we’ve done is to begin posting our PowerPoint decks and SharePoint and Office 2010 developer videos on Channel 9 in our new Learning Centers as a complement to other collateral that is out there today. There are some great videos here that you can watch for 10-15 minutes at a time. To get them, navigate to the top-level learning center on Channel 9 (http://channel9.msdn.com/learn/ or go straight to the either of the learning centers:

SharePoint 2010: http://channel9.msdn.com/learn/courses/SharePoint2010Developer/

Office 2010:

There are some great videos here, and the guys (Donovan Follette and Paul Stubbs) have done a fantastic job rallying this content.

There’ll be more to come with full downloadable packages coming next week and hands-on labs and source code coming at the beginning of January.

Happy Coding!
