Instructors

This was extremely interesting engagement and we worked with many extremely skillful instructors. Here’s the list of persons, who owned modules in this training.

Global tour

During past year we also had global tour to do trainings for partners and customers. We visited following cities with little bit different set of instructors: Seattle, Atlanta, Dallas, Amsterdam, Berlin, Bangalore and Singapore. Thanks for all participants and instructors from my behalf. Personally I had excellent time on the numerous locations I visited.

I also want to thank the local vendors for making sure that all of the logistics were running smoothly in each of the locations.

Thanks for everyone being involved for making this possible and such a success. Hopefully you find the available recordings useful and they help to make successful deployments and pleased end users.

Channel 9 SharePoint 2010 developer videos also released

Check also the newly released Channel 9 SharePoint developer content. There’s new videos and content available. This content was created together with the Critical Path Training instructors (mainly Andrew Connell & Ted Pattison), who are also mainly responsible of the recorded content. Paul Stubbs has been one of the drivers for this content internally. You can read introduction from following blog entry:

What’s the relationship of these two developer training materials? – Materials are originally based on same root content, but they were differentiated from each other long time ago. Both training materials have modules, which cover similar topics, but there’s lot of different content and demos in each of them. There’s also numerous modules, which are not overlapping between these two materials. I strongly suggest to check them both.
