Microsoft invites to participate in the new online “Microsoft Surface Design and Development Training” course begins with an introduction to Microsoft Surface platform and its unique attributes – including its vision (camera) based massive multi-touch input, 360° multiuser interface, and physical object recognition. Subsequent training modules include detailed videos, how-to information, reference materials, and step-by-step hands-on labs. Topics include the Surface SDK, WPF controls, user experience guidelines, the Surface shell, simulator, hardware and more. These nine course modules include topics discussed in classroom training, with benefit of greater convenience. In addition to being a great starting point for those new to Surface development, it’s also a good refresher for those with more experience. If you’ve completed either form of Surface training you can return to these online modules at any time to immediately review the information you require,” noted Microsoft.
