Talking about training and events a resource I’ve first saw in this year TechEd came into my mind Ramp Up. Ramp Up is a free, online, community-based learning program, with a number of different tracks that will help you build your portfolio of professional development skills.

Ramp Up has a solid foundation of premium technical content from subject-matter gurus, and provides easy-to-access content in a variety of forms that guide you in learning the important skills. Join Ramp Up (it’s free!) and help advance your career.

On April 1st Microsoft is launching a new kind of event, namely Virtual TechDays. To attend it all you’ll have to do is open your browser and navigate to the site. You can even attend it from the comfort of your home couch. At least that is what I’m going to attempt, I’m going to stream it to my Windows Media Center Extender (aka XBOX) from your Windows Media Center 😉 PC). You don’t even have to worry about the time of the event (usual problem for us Europeans). Organizers have planned so that the event is available for different time zones.

So there’s no excuse, If you haven’t register for it, now is a good time to do it as there are a lot of interesting sessions on all the latest technologies, and a lot of interesting speakers (our own papadi has a session on how to built a File Upload/Download Progress Indicator using Windows Communication Foundation).

See you there…
