After a few months of hiding in my office working on some cool new projects, I come out of my shell with exciting news.
The Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Enterprise Search training course provides a series of hands-on labs, presentations, and videos that demonstrate how to enable high-end enterprise search with Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 for Search and Microsoft FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint. Learn about crawling and indexing content and defining the user experience. By completing these modules, you can build most of the Contoso Research Demo and gain a broad understanding of how to apply these design principles to your site.
This training set has 15 lessons with lots of videos, hands-on lab document downloads, quiz questions and links to other related resources.
A similar set is coming soon on TechNet
