What’s a “Jump Start” Course?
Training specifically designed for experienced technologists whose jobs demand they know how to best leverage new, emerging Microsoft technologies. These advanced courses assume a certain level of expertise and domain knowledge, so they move quickly and cover topics in a fashion that enables teams to effectively map new skills to real-world situations.

    Thanks, I've just registered!

  • Lars Helbig

    Will this Jump Start also be available for other timezones?

  • Veronica Sopher - Microsoft

    @Lars - Recorded sessions will be made available at a later date.

  • Tim Atwood

    Veronica, How do I get access to the recordings?  Do I need to register to get the recordings?  Thanks!

  • Sebastian Talmon

    do you know a specific date/week/month for the recordings? "a later date" is somewhat unspecific ;-)

  • Frank Gartland

    @Roel -- I look forward to seeing you online! We think you'll enjoy this Jump Start!

  • Frank Gartland

    @Tim, @Lars, and @Sebastian: The live Jump Start -- with LOTS of live, chat-based Q&A -- will be delivered live on 10/23-24 starting at 9am PST both days. While we recognize that time is not optimal for folks living in EMEA and APAC, we typically have 40% of our audience joining from those time zones. Since the MSL Studios are in Redmond, it's a bit of a scheduling challenge for instructors to deliver these at other times. That said, we have done it before and we plan to offer others in the future.

    Every session will be recorded and we will send each person who registers for the event a link via email to the HD-quality video recordings. You should expect to receive that email approximately one week after the course is complete. See you online!
