SharePoint Designer will be a free download as of 1 April 2009

Microsoft has decided to make SharePoint Designer available for free, as of the 1st of April 2009 you will be able to download a free version from the SPD site. Note that this does not mean SPD is 'end of life', the next version fo SPD (which I have seen at MVP Summit) will ship when the next version of SharePoint is released.

(more details on this blog post)

MOSSIG and Stargate Global Consulting thought this was a good reason to offer a free introduction training for SharePoint Designer, you can sign up for this 2 hour workshop here.

Each workshop will be limited to 12 people, so sign up quickly!

For questions, just leave a comment.

Free SharePoint Developer Training

Microsoft has just made it very easy for you to step up to the plate and access a generous amount of training resources for free. Start at the Ramp Up page on MSDN and find your way through the maze guided by Microsoft Learning. The courses provide a nice managed way to work through a list of topics applicable to SharePoint as well as Visual Studio developers and help you prepare for certification if that's what your goal is.
