I was asked a little while back to pull together the best training resources for .NET development to feed into a MSDN UK site. I thought it would be useful to share here as well. By no means everything is listed but sometimes less is more :-). Enjoy:

Top Tip:

Watch out – these are sometimes big downloads. For instance I just downloaded a high def PDC2009 session at 600MB! I recommend you check out Free Download Manager – it is a great open source tool for working with large files.

Offline Training

Microsoft sites focused on free training (yep, we have at least 3 of them!)

  • Microsoft Visual Studio Training Portal
  • Ramp Up community-based learning (ASP, PHP, SharePoint, Mobile and more)
  • for free training (Silverlight, Windows 7, Application Compatibility, SQL Server 2008, Azure and more)

Microsoft Shows available on-demand:

  • Watch the sessions from the PDC2009 developer conference (Azure, VS2010 and more)
  • Watch the sessions from the PDC2008 developer conference (Azure, VS2010 and more)
  • Watch the sessions from the MIX09 conference (Silverlight, Web and more)
    • The UK ReMix event from Sept 2008

Online (Video, ScreenCasts, Webcasts, Tutorials, Labs)

And lest we forget:

  • The excellent MSDN Magazine is available free online.
