Environment Separation Course

4 בJune 2012

The course objective was to show the foundation tools and the methodology including  the technology challenges moving from FW 2.0 and VS2005/3/1 to VS2010. Still there are organizations that are going through this process, and for each developer in these companies the huge challenge is to cover the knowledge gap created.
