Ramp Up: SharePoint For Developers
Ramp Up is a free, online, community-based learning intiative from Microsoft that provides materials for building your skills with Microsoft developer tools and technologies. The easy-to-access and easy-to-follow Ramp Up ‘routes’ are authored by subject-matter experts from the technical community, and include a variety of learning resources including whitepapers, codecasts, and v-labs. When you finish a route, you get rewarded with discounts on certification exams and e-learning (25% discount on certification and 50% off on e-learning).
In addition to the new route for SharePoint, Ramp Up also offers training for developers switching to C# (Aspiring Developers, Java Developers), and developers who want to update their skills to the latest version of Visual Studio 2008.
