From the Editor

Christian Beauclair

 

Hello developers.

I hope you had a great Canada Day. Summer is a time of vacation and relaxation and it is a great time also to learn new things. You can read a book by the pool or bring your Zune on a plane to watch some podcasts and stay current that way. But there are some new resources available as well. I wanted to point out that in June we had Tech-Ed in Orlando and they launched a new portal full of information that might be of interest to you. Follow this link for more details.

At Tech Ed, they also re-launched the Ramp Up web site ,which is an amazing source of great learning content based on different roles. You just choose which role best describe you and you'll get a list full of training and webcast to help you "RAMP-UP".

On a final note, we are getting ready for a great fall line-up of activities for you and we'd love to hear your feedback. If you attended an event online or offline and you'd like to share your experience with us or if you have great ideas for us to improve, please pass them on to us by emailing msdnteam@microsoft.com.

Thank you for your continued support, enjoy your summer and don't get too many sunburn.

Christian
