Whether you’re gearing up for Microsoft certification exams, or want more hands-on experience with Windows 8 or Windows Azure, these three-hour, online events are great training opportunities for IT professionals and developers. And, they’re free. Attendees first listen to a live presentation and then have the opportunity to work on lab exercises.
