I went to see the clever folk at Vivid Group yesterday. Being clever, they've already established an internal user group of sorts, but they're often looking for compelling content to deliver. Fortunately, I was able to point them to some great resources.
The various Visual Studio Training Kits provide content in the form of presentations, demo code and scripts and labs. There are three flavours available at this stage:
- Visual Studio 2008 and .NET Framework 3.5 Training Kit
- .NET 3.5 Enhancements Training Kit - May Preview
- VSTS 2008 Hands-on Labs March 2008 Release, for which you'll need Visual Studio® Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server and Team Suite VPC Image (Trial)
By the way, that link to the VPC is for one that expires on December 31 2008. http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/vsts2008/products/cc268311.aspx will always link to the most recent version of our VPC’s for download.
