I received some information about some new offerings from Microsoft learning last week and thought they would be worth sharing with others. If you are looking to upgrade to Visual Studio 2008 now or in the near future these resources may help you jump start your learning.
If you want a book to get up to speed quickly on Visual Studio 2008 this free e-book may be a good start for you. There are also some special training offers there.
There is a new one day training course being offered at training centers all over the county. This course teaches new development features available in Visual Studio 2008. Read about the course and find local training near you here.
There is a new free online course, "Developing Enhanced Web Experiences with Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX Extensions", for people who want to incorporate ASP.NET and AJAX.
