Microsoft recently released a freely downloadable training kit, with presentations, hands-on labs, and demonstrations, of pretty much every feature in Visual Studio 2008! These are the types of resources that I use myself to get up to speed on some of the new technologies, and I wanted to make sure that you knew about them as well.
- C# 3.0
- Visual Basic (.NET) 9.0
- Windows Communication Foundation (WCF)
- Windows Workflow Foundation (WF)
- Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF)
- ASP.NET AJAX
- Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO), this is where the SharePoint Development stuff is!
- Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)
The best part, I find, is that it is broken up in such a way that you can focus on one part/new feature at a time. It’s well worth the cost (free), unless you include the download cost.
