Building Solutions with Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R2

Hi folks,

Microsoft has updated it's Windows Embedded Videos with a whole series around the official Training "Building Solutions with Windows Embedded CE 6.0 R2".
Joe Broxson, Technical Manager at Adeneo, leads through the training which up to now was only available either as an online training or as a classroom training which both cost money.

So the question is: Why do all these companys such as Hilf, BSquare, MicroConsult, Feabhas, EB and lots more who can be found here: Windows Embedded Training Partners offer trainings for money? Do we, or should I better say, you really need them?

My answer is: Yes, you do!

Allthough this learning material is a great asset to anybody who is starting to use Windows Embedded CE it misses two major aspects which can be crucial to the success of a project or at least to a good start of the project:

- Interaction with the Expert


- Access to many years of experience.

Both aspects, together with the possibility to conduct the training with the customers specific Hardware - let me say that out loaud: YOUR HARDWARE - being the main benefit of a classroom training.

The benefit of the online training that I see is that you can go better prepared to a class training knowing some of the questions you want to ask. As a trainer myself, I have in the past often heard from attendees during the Q&A at the end of a Training session that they don't know what to ask as they have to "digest" the information first - perhaps now a thing of the past - I would hope so.

Let me know your thoughts and comments.

So long and thanks for all the fish!
