In brief…. take 1 minute to register today if you are UK based and work for a company that creates software products and want to dig into SharePoint 2010 development for FREE with a great UK based SME (subject matter expert).

And… if you want to understand the background, read on :-)

Microsoft Platform Ready is where we are aggregating resources to help companies who develop software products explore and adopt the latest technologies from Microsoft. There are many benefits to signing up (e.g. the Cloud Essentials Pack) including access to training. I have previously posted about the Three Days of Online Training on SharePoint 2010 development which is available to companies registered on MPR.

However… I wanted to surface this training more widely to give a taster to companies of the kind of benefits you get from signing up to MPR.

The training is 100% free and you don’t need to leave the comfort of your office/house/starbucks (other coffee shops with wifi do exist)

Day 1 (Live Meeting 3 hours) 1:30 - 4:30
