"Hey.. that stuff's for Developers!"

Well.. yeah, if you're a pure IT Pro, you can stop reading now.  But even more specifically, it is for that portion of the development process that is responsible for the "look-n-feel" of an application; the User Interface.  These people are the Designers.  And Microsoft has some new tools for this part of the process. 

Plus.. the training is just such a cool idea and a good deal that I really wanted to share it with you all.

"<sigh> Okay.. what's the deal?"

There are three events that you can take advantage of:

  1. A free event on the topic of "Architecting for the User Experience" (see www.arcready.com for details and registration)
  2. A two day class that covers Expression Web, ASP.NET, ASP.NET AJAX and our new Silverlight Platform (With a cost of $175 per student)
  3. A two day class that covers Expression Blend, WPF and our new Silverlight Platform (With a cost of $175 per student)

Make sure you tell the instructor "Kevin sent ya".

"Kevin!  You're an IT Pro!  Stop giving us all this developer news!"

Well.. the world of IT Pros, Developers, and Architects is not all black and white (er.. black, white, and some other color that is nothing like black or white).  I know that there are a lot of you out there who are Software Engineers who also run the Servers; or Desktop Support people who also help in product development.  And as a former Software Engineer myself, I still have a soft spot in my heart for Software Development tools and the whole ART of creating software.  I'm seriously considering taking some of this training, too.
