Microsoft Training Courses at Pluralsight

p4-at-ps
I am thrilled to announce that I have authored a training course available at Pluralsight which is targeted for developers who are just beginning web development using the Microsoft web platform.  Although it is a beginner’s course, it is designed to bring a current web developer not familiar with Microsoft up to speed with the latest terms, tools, and technologies. 

The course provides a comparison of the same demo using Web Application Projects, Web Sites, Web Pages, and MVC.  It also showcases Visual Studio 2010 and WebMatrix.

So if you are relatively new to web development using Microsoft technologies, take a look at “The Beginner’s Guide to the Microsoft Web Platform” at Pluralsight today!  And if you can make the time for it, I would value your feedback.

Desert Mountain Developers

I created a daily edition of a virtual paper via paper.li just a few days ago.  I created a twitter list of developers in the Desert Mountain region (AZ, CO, NM, NV, UT) and have the paper generated from tweets from those folks.  I also added #html5 and #css3 tags in the mix for content.  The result has exceeded my expectations!

So grab a cup of your favorite beverage, sit back, and enjoy the paper!

Visual Studio 2010 Launched!

vs2008_logo I am writing this blog at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, NV just moments after the keynote at DevConnections.  The formal announcement has been made that Visual Studio 2010 has launched.

While this has been a long anticipated product release, I can’t help but wonder how long before the .NET community at large will actually embrace adoption.  As a trainer, I encounter many developers who never switched from Visual Studio 2005 to 2008.  A few number recently admitted using Visual Studio 2003.

With support for multi-monitors, code snippets in the web source view, UML diagrams auto-generated, framework enhancements and language features, improved deployment tools, and a fresh IDE – this is the one to switch to now for the developer who wants instant gratification and higher productivity.
