A Summer of WPF and Silverlight Training


Summer’s here, and that usually means a bit of a slow-down in the office as folk take off on vacation. It’s also a great time for some new skills development and training, and as there’s a smorgasbord of WPF and Silverlight-related courses taking place over the next few months, I thought I’d take the opportunity to highlight a round-up of the choices available to you, presented in the form of an events calendar:

    I am releasing online a WPF training course i wrote. The course will be free and and I am releasing it in parts. I opted to split it up as i thought they were easily digestable in a blog format.
