Of the many things that I've done over a fifteen year career at Microsoft, one of the projects that I'm proudest to have been associated with is Microsoft Virtual Academy. Over the last two-and-a-bit years that my team has been responsible for this site, we've grown about five times in size, with tens of millions of hours of videos served to the nearly three million students that are now registered on the site. We've built two HD video studios that are occupied almost every day running live jump start sessions with engineers, trainers and presenters from all over the company, and we now have an incredible array of free training content covering developer, cloud, systems administration, data platform and business application topics.
In the last nine months alone, we've added over 100 courses just for developers. Unless you're paying very close attention, my guess is that you might not have quite realized the breadth and depth of free training available on MVA. So I thought I'd put together a list of deep links to these courses. I've weeded out a few that were duplicates or updates and added back a few 'classic' favorites to get back to 100. Many, but not all, of these courses are also translated into other languages. So without further ado, here's the meat - one hundred free developer courses on Microsoft or related technologies, all fresh for your viewing pleasure:
Congratulations to the team for their amazing work. We'd always love to hear from you with your suggestions for new topics, your feedback, your praise and your brickbats. Tweet us at @MSVirtAcademy or come and join us in the MVA Community Forum.
