Microsoft Free Webcasts & catch RSS to your Google Reader

MSDN Events... And now, back to our regularly scheduled events.  Thank you for helping us launch Windows Server 2008, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 and Microsoft Visual Studio 2008. We couldn’t have done it without you.

 


MSDN Events will be back next season and we’ve got a great lineup in the works, with topics including Visual Studio, Silverlight, the .NET Framework and much more. We’ll be posting event dates and locations shortly, so stay tuned for more information. Or subscribe to our RSS feed and get all the details delivered directly to your computer once they’re available.

In the meantime, stay connected with the MSDN Events team by visiting their blogs. You can also check out the topics and live sessions you might have missed with MSDN Events Webcasts.

We look forward to seeing you at MSDN Events.

Main RSS Feed

MSDN Events is now providing an RSS Feed for our upcoming events. Tune your RSS reader to our feed and you'll be notified when there's new content available from MSDN Events. Through this feed, you can be notified when new content, dates and locations have been added for MSDN Events.

What is RSS?

RSS (Really Simple Syndication) provides a convenient way to syndicate information from a variety of sources, including news stories, updates to a web site or even source code check-ins for a development project. Regardless of the purpose for which the RSS file is being used, by watching this XML file, you can quickly and easily see whenever an update has occurred. Of course, viewing the RSS feed in Internet Explorer and hitting F5 every few minutes is not the most efficient use of your time, so most people take advantage of some form of client software to read and monitor RSS feeds.

There are many different RSS clients available, but here are a selected few that you may find useful:

  1. SharpReader
  2. FeedReader
