Hello folks,

This is my compilation of some of the online resource available to you in December.

This list featuring both live and on-demand content for December including webcasts, videos, virtual labs, and podcasts by product and topic. this is not the WHOLE list of the available content. but these are the ones i thought were relevant to the conversations I've had with customers and IT pros.

Microsoft webcasts are 30-90 minutes in length and feature interactive presentations, product demonstrations, and question-and-answer sessions. Virtual labs give you an opportunity to test drive Microsoft’s newest products in an online environment. It's simple—no complex setup or installation is required. Stream or download audio podcasts and quickly access content with RSS feeds.

Microsoft podcasts are free — just click and Learn!

You can View all the podcasts for IT professionals here. (http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9637723.)
