At the moment these are announced
in the USA only. A full day of client development training for Windows 7, including IE9 and SL OOB. They say:
We will look at application compatibility and transitioning your applications to
Windows 7, integrating with the Windows taskbar, developing for IE9, utilizing
the cool functionality in the Sensors and Location Platform so that your
application better responds to its current environment, leveraging the
multitouch capabilities (especially in kiosk scenarios), and creating
Silverlight 4 out of browser applications. This event is a unique opportunity,
partnering classroom learning with hands-on-labs and leveraging experts to
advise you so we can help you “win” with Windows 7.
You bring your own laptop with VS 2010, the Code Pack
, the Windows 7 Training Kit, IE9, and Silverlight 4 installed (there are links on the bootcamp
page) and do the labs as you go. The training is all free and you'll get hands on experience right while you're there. (It doesn't say so, but my guess is this is all managed code and that the labs are in both C# and VB.)
And if there isn't one near you, you can help arrange one! It's all packaged as an event-in-a-box so all you need is a trainer who'll agree to deliver it and a room to hold it in. But check the dates and locations first -- there are over a dozen sessions scheduled already, so perhaps there's one near you.
