(Streamlined Syllabus of 100 hours of free videos from some of Microsoft's finest – learn directly from the experts and re-watch them until it "sinks in." The best teachers are the ones that know the material backwards and forwards so that they can present it in a streamlined manner – these instructors do just that. We need to learn the material backwards and forwards too. The good news is that all of the instruction and the software you will download to do the coding is 100% free! (Microsoft does require that you register with them to view the videos and you also have to use Internet Explorer browser, instead of Firefox, Safari, etc., but it is totally free.) You can copy-n-paste my google.docs spreadsheets to your own spreadsheet to help you keep track of which videos you have watched by clicking here – have some fun with it!)

Syllabus Spreadsheet

SQL Server – 13 Free Videos from Bob Tabor of LearnVisualStudio.net (Highly Recommend).

Modern Software Development in Visual Basic – Joe Hummel gives a very clear presentation on the basic concepts involved in programming in Visual Basic. He is a PhD in computer science and excellent at making abstract concepts seem simple. Joe is very good at giving you a conceptual behind-the-scenes understanding of how dotnNet programming works. Fifteen free one-hour tutorials.

ASP.NET Soup To Nuts – Microsoft's Bill Steele provides an excellent 26 hour video series that takes you from installing the free express versions of the software to building a full-blown auction site. Best series I have watched! Be sure to check out Bill's very cool heads up display invention for airline pilots at www.virtualhud.com (Highly Recommend).

Essential ASP.NET
– Although many of the topics in this series are similar to Bill Steele's ASP Soup to Nuts Series, Fritz puts a different spin on them, and I have learned a lot by watching both series. (Highly Recommend).

C# Soup to Nuts – Microsoft's Bill Steele does another Soup to Nuts video series – this one is on C# and it consists of 22 free one-hour videos (Highly Recommend).

VB Soup to Nuts Ron Cundiff of Microsoft provides 17 free one-hour videos on VB.

ADO Step By Step – Microsoft's Lindsay Rutter and Glen Gordon present 16 hours of data access fundamentals for dotNET programmers (Highly Recommend).

Modern Software Development Using C# – Dr. Joe Hummel presents 15 free one-hour videos on building Applications in the .NET Framework using C#. Appropriate for the intermediate or advanced Visual Studio .NET developer, Architecting Modern Desktop Applications in Microsoft .NET Framework focuses on the architecture and design of Smart Client Applications. Topics range from security when architecting your desktop application to using multithreading for performance and responsiveness. The Architecting .NET Framework Solutions with C# and VB miniseries are both designed for Java, VB6, and C++ developers moving to .NET Framework, and they follow the progression of C# or VB development.

Advanced Topics (not part of Streamlined Syllabus)

ASP.NET Learn Ajax – Microsoft's Joe Stagner takes you through installing Ajax extensions to using most of the controls in 76 videos.

Windows Presentation Foundation – Microsoft's Bill Steele strikes again!!! Eighteen hours of free videos on Windows Presentation Foundation. Very Enjoyable.

Windows Communication Foundation Top to Bottom – Microsoft's Michele Leroux Bustamante presents 15 free one-hour videos on building Windows Communication Foundation. Windows Communication Foundation (WCF) is the Microsoft messaging platform for building service-oriented applications. Released with the Windows Vista operating system, and part of the Microsoft .NET Framework version 3.0, WCF unifies the programming model for how components and services communicate: be they distributed or not, accessible beyond firewalls, or available through interoperable interfaces.

Architecting Desktop Applications with 2.0 – Dr. Joe Hummel presents an advanced series (15 free one-hour tutorials) on developing desktop applications that are smart clients. These applications allow you to work offline and update your web database whenever you reconnect to the internet. This is an advanced series and you should definitely watch his Modern Software Development in Visual Basic first. This is not really part of the streamlined syllabus, as it is more advanced.

SQL Server 2005 – Bryan Von Axelson presents 10 free one-hour tutorials on SQL Server Administration topics. This is a more advanced series and not part of the streamlined Syllabus.
