Shawn Wildermuth’s “Silverlight Tour” is coming to the UK, in the guise of the Silverlight Masterclass, and NxtGenUG members can receive £50 off the course price (in addition to the current “early bird” offer if you qualify for that).
The 3 day developer course looks quite comprehensive, starting with Silverlight, XAML and Blend basics on day one, working with data on day two, and finishing off with more advanced topics like MVVM, MEF and PRISM on day three. It’s great to see some patterns and practices coverage in a Silverlight course, especially given my recent experience trying to recruit Silverlight developers!
In addition to the discounts you can also win a free ticket to one of the courses by blogging about it yourself using the text from the “pitch” below. For more details on the competition take a look at Ian Blackburn’s blog entry.
The Silverlight Tour comes to the UK – and it’s called the Masterclass!
This 3 day hands-on training with both designer and developer tracks looks awesome and (uniquely) has two expert trainers per course.
Currently scheduled in London, Manchester, and the Midlands for June, all courses also come with the chance to win an xbox 360, and Silverlight Spy licences!
Early bird discount of £100 if you book in May, and if you are a member of #SLUGUK or #nxtgenug there are additional discounts to be had.
