One of the services that has kept Microsoft ahead of the competition in the enterprise world for over a decade is their high quality free training opportunities. Oddly free training is something that Microsoft does well, and yet very few people know about it. Their training allows you to get a good understanding of the technologies you may be thinking about deploying, or introduce you to products that you didn’t know even existed. It’s easy to think Microsoft only offers Windows, Office and Azure, but the full scope of their products is mind numbing.
The Microsoft Virtual Academy offers a huge number of on demand video courses and also allows you to asses your progress and track your learning. The site isn’t the most coherently designed, but if you’re willing to spend a few minutes wandering the selections you’ll definitely find something of interest.
