.NET 3.5 VPC and Resources Available

If you are interested in learning more about Visual Studio 2008, make sure you check out the Visual Studio 2008 Training Kit.  Weighing in at roughly 120MB compressed, it contains, "a full 5-days of technical content including 20 hands-on labs, 28 presentations, and 20 scripted demos.   The technologies covered in the kit include:  LINQ, C# 3.0, VB 9, WCF, WF, WPF, Windows CardSpace, Silverlight, ASP.NET Ajax, .NET Compact Framework 3.5, VSTO 3.0, Visual Studio Team System, and Team Foundation Server".

Naturally, you will want to have a machine setup to run all these labs and samples... so, thanks to the hard work of David and James, you can now download a VPC with Vista, Visual Studio 2008 (trial), and the .NET 3.5 framework pre-loaded and ready to run.  Get it here.

You want more?  Ok, how about 17 training videos describing the technologies and running through a number of demos?  Get those here.

These are truly some great resources to get you jumpstarted!
