SharePoint 2010 Training resources

Posted by Brian Gough on June 23, 2010

Last night I gave a presentation at the Developers Guild on various resources available to learn how to develop against SharePoint 2010.  We had a great crowd and many of the attendees asked for the slide deck.  I have the deck available on a sky drive for you to down load.  The deck has several links to free training resources, links to Andrew Connell’s posting about setting up your development environment, and a few companies that offer training at a cost.

Hope fully this information will give you a real good jump start on SharePoint 2010 development.

The link should be posted on the Developers Guild web site soon, but I have posted it below as well.

Training From Microsoft

Posted by Brian Gough on November 7, 2008

Microsoft’s Ramp Up program has just launched its latest learning track SharePoint for Developers, Part I

Ramp Up is a free, online, community-based program that can help users save time in learning Microsoft technology. The easy-to-access content (provided by subject-matter gurus) is specifically tailored to the Ramp Up program, and offered in a variety of forms (whitepaper, v-lab, codecast and slidecast). This SharePoint track, along with the other currently offered tracks (eg, Visual Studio 2008), teaches the important skills in a guided path, making the learning process easier and more efficient. Currently, there are no assessments in the program, so it’s quicker than ever to graduate and receive the reward (25% off on certification and 50% off on e-Learning – only for graduates of Ramp Up).

· Ramp Up forum

I hope to walk through some of the content to let you know more about it. I will blog on it when I can. But don’t wait for me, if you have been looking for training, you really should check it out!
