Free Programming Training CD's
« on: August 23, 2006, 07:48 AM »
Just got this in an email today:

Your choice of 22 CD's!

Get one or get them all.

They are 1 individual CD taken from full courses they offer on the following:

Visual Studio 2005
  • NEW! Visual C# 2005: Developing Applications
  • NEW! Visual Basic 2005: Developing Applications
  • NEW! ASP.NET Using Visual C# 2005
  • NEW! ASP.NET Using Visual Basic 2005
  • NEW! Visual Studio 2005 Tools for Microsoft Office
  • NEW! Exploring ASP.NET "Atlas" and Web 2.0
  • Exploring Visual C# 2005
  • Exploring Visual Basic 2005
  • Exploring ASP.NET Using Visual C# 2005
  • Exploring ASP.NET Using Visual Basic 2005

Visual Studio .NET

  • NEW! Managing and Maintaining Windows Server 2003 (for MCSE or MCSA)
  • Developing Applications Using Visual C# .NET (for MCSD or MCAD)
  • Visual Basic .NET (for MCSD or MCAD)
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2000 (for MCDBA)

Each CD is a value of up to $125 US.

If you live in the US, you can select 1 CD and they will mail it to you, free of charge. No shipping & handling to pay. If you want more than 1, you pay the shipping on additionals.

If you do not live in the US, you can still get the CD's for free, but you will have to pay the shipping on all of them, including the first one.

If you would like to get away with not paying at all, no matter where you live, you can download it instead of getting the CD's. Just sign up for a free account and have fun downloading. They support download managers, so you can even get them all if you are on dialup, if you have that kind of patience.

They are hoping you will like the CD's enough to pay for a full course set.

I selected the Visual C# 2005: Developing Applications. It is a CD from this course. I thought it would go well with my free copy of VS2005 Standard, that I am still waiting to recieve from Microsoft, after viewing the videos. The offer was extended through September 30, 2006; although they have changed the offer to a VS2005 Professional 90 trial. I hope the delay in recieving my copy doesn't mean they have changed what I am going to recieve.  :huh:
