30 “Quick Hit” Videos for folks that couldn’t join us at PDC

Hi folks! I’m posting this from the PDC09 keynote where I’m listening to Don Box show off Azure !

For web developers, I prepared 30 “Quick Hit” videos on stuff that’s new in the latest wave for ASP.NET Develoeprs.

It’s far from a complete list, and they are not meant to be real tutorials (They are NOT How-Do-I videos).

Think of them as “feature previews” with more learning based material coming in the near fututr.

Here is a partial list.

Have fun

ASP.NET 4 / VS 2010 “Quick Hit” Videos

Now that the “Dev 2010” wave of products is in beta and we’re getting closer5 and closer to release, I‘ve started publishing “Quick Hit” videos on the new features.

These are not really tutorials (Not like the How-Do-I videos) but rather just “quick” peeks to show you the new stuff.

I’ll start working on more detailed training  after PDC.

The first 5 videos are now live:
