[Updated 16th Feb with recordings of the three days]

Important: This FREE online training is being repeated in March. Check it out and register today.

Thank you for attending the pilot for delivering the SharePoint 2010 Developer Training as an online experience using Live Meeting. With over nine hours of Live Meetings and around 70 attendees each day we got through a lot of content and a lot of Q&A! I know Matt and I enjoyed it and many of you said the same. Your patience with Wednesdays audio issues was also very much appreciated.

Recordings of the three days

The three live meetings were recorded. The quality (especially day one) are not as good as the on-demand versions above and I would recommend you go with the above unless you actually attended the training – when you may like to revisit specific areas of the three days.
