Free ASP.NET AJAX Online Training

We just published a great set of rich online training for ASP.NET AJAX.  It includes lots of great information presented in a very easy to understand way.   I highly recommend every ASP.NET developer work through it then add “AJAX” to their resume! 😉


Developing Enhanced Web Experiences with Microsoft® ASP.NET AJAX

With compelling and complex demos that use an informal, peer-to-peer conversational model, graphics and screenshots of ASP.NET AJAX functionality, and useful and relevant code snippets, this clinic really moves the needle!

In this media-rich (eight Capto demos and three animations!) eLearning premium clinic, developers will learn about the robust functionality ASP.NET AJAX Extensions provides for building highly responsive and enhanced Web applications. In addition to learning about the different server and client components of ASP.NET AJAX, they will also learn how to build new ASP.NET AJAX applications and how to upgrade existing ASP.NET applications to take advantage of ASP.NET AJAX.

This clinic was the first courseware title to use the Learning Content Development System (LCDS), which is a form-based tool for authoring Microsoft Learning’s next generation of eLearning. The goal of the LCDS is to enable content development vendors, product groups, internal training organizations, partners, and eventually anyone, to create high-quality, interactive training with relative ease. This pilot is the first step in that effort. We are all looking forward to seeing version 2.0 of this product!

This fresh and engaging two-hour clinic (created by Content Master) is now available and can be accessed from the following location:

    MS Passport / Live registration shows error ever in my MSIE 6.0 sp1 ( may be not all QuickFixes) ?


    Seems to be best advertisment of crossplatform abilties of AJAX.ASP.NET :[ What wrong with it? Nothing, but busy technical guys, who test such advantages by theyselfs, next time is not advice AJAX from MS.


    Before choose before MS and open source was: Stabilty/Predicabilty(MS) with lower cost (Open Source), so MS win(coz Summary cost of project raises as far as needs fix OpenSource haos )


    But it seem’s to be changed now (

    I can’t recomend buy ASP.NET with quality of worst class open source.

    PS ASP.NET is free? But 2003(IIS) / MS SQL / VS.NET etc is Not
