O'Reilly Launches the ASP.NET 2.0 Training Center

by Preston Gralla

How's this for a deal: Learn the latest new techniques in ASP.NET 2.0, get advice from top O'Reilly and Dr. Dobbs Journal experts and authors, and get lots of free stuff -- more than $400 worth -- in the bargain?

That's what you'll find at the ASP.NET 2.0 Training Center, a new web site launched by O'Reilly in concert with CMP's Dr. Dobbs Journal and Microsoft. The site offers a comprehensive set of development tools, how-to's, and training to help programmers master ASP.NET 2.0. And if you sign up for the site's webcast series you also get more than $400 in tools and information, including Visual Studio® 2005 Standard Edition.

The site is not only for ASP.NET 2.0 developers. It's particularly useful for programmers working with PHP, JSP and ColdFusion to add to their skillsets by mastering ASP.NET 2.0. If you're a PHP, JSP, or ColdFusion developer, you'll find articles explaining the basic concepts of ASP.NET 2.0, tutorials on writing applications, and advice on cross-platform portability. You'll also get plenty of advice for writing better PHP, JSP and ColdFusion applications as well.

The site has dozens of articles from top O'Reilly authors and experts such as Jesse Liberty and Wei-Meng Lee, and from Dr. Dobbs Journal experts as well. There are tutorials covering data binding, themes and skins, multiplatform environments, Web parts, localization, XML DataSource controls, and plenty of others.

In the coming weeks, I'll be telling you more about the site, and I'll highlight some of the more intriguing articles and webcasts. But for now, head over, take a look around -- and register for the webcasts to get more than $400 in goodies.

What do you think of the ASP.NET 2.0 Training Center?

Goodies only for Americans?
Just tried to register for the web casts and the page where you have to enter the shipping address only accepts addresses in the US and Canada. So I guess the gifts are not available to Europeans.

CMP's Webcasts are GREAT!
One small problem: where in the world do you go to actually view the webcasts?!?!

It's easy to register. Easy to sign up for a webcast, and to view which webcasts you're signed up for.

I'd sure like to watch one. I've missed several already.

Any help appreciated.

Hi, I'll see what I can do to help. What happens when it's time for the webinar and you click the link? Do you get some kind of error message, or does something else happen? Let me know, and I'll track it down for you.
