KnowledgeNet Takes the Mystery Out of Microsoft .NET With Free Online Course

January 28, 2003

KnowledgeNet Inc. today answered the question: “Are you ready for .NET?”

KnowledgeNet is conducting a free, online mini-course — “.NET Demystified” — designed to teach the fundamentals of the .NET architecture and how the .NET framework provides the foundation for mission critical applications that help deliver information and success. Designed specifically for those individuals leading application development projects within their organizations or

currently implementing or considering a .NET implementation, the KnowledgeNet .NET mini-course is the ideal e-learning opportunity.

Attendees of KnowledgeNet’s engaging, hands-on .NET course will learn the following:

  • The fundamentals of the .NET framework and how it can enhance business results through faster development and easier integration;

  • How to get staff up-to-speed on .NET as quickly and efficiently as possible; and
