Microsoft’s Connect() conference last week included not only the keynote with the announcements but more than 60 individual breakout sessions on technologies from Azure to Office365. Those videos are available now for streaming on Channel 9. The format for the videos include several Q&A sessions with the keynote speakers such as Scott Guthrie, Anders Hejlsberg, and Kevin Gallo as well as customers and also several panel discussions with the product teams. And of course there are the more traditional educational webinars. Here are a few that we think you’ll find particularly informative.
