Blatant TakeNote Plug :-)

It's not very often that I talk about my company, TakeNote Technologies, on the show. Both Amnon and I run our own companies and neither of us mention that fact very often. Amnon's company, DeltaForce, is a local ISP here in the Research Triangle area. My company, TakeNote Technologies, is a local software development training and consulting company.

At TakeNote, our mission is to provide world-class training for software developers. We offer hands-on training classes which teach developers how to build traditional Windows desktop applications, web applications with ASP.NET, and how to work with SQL Server. We will be adding developer classes for SharePoint, and .NET 3.0 (WPF, WCF, and Workflow) in the near future. TakeNote's primary objective is to make sure software developers have access to the training they need. We are well positioned to offer software development training because we are software developer's ourselves. We like to say "We code, we teach, you benefit."

Our next scheduled series of classes are VBN101: Programming With Visual Basic 2005 and VBN301: Developing ASP.NET 2.0 Web Applications With Visual Basic 2005 on August 13 - 17.

AVG Anti-Virus

As usual, the topic of anti-virus software came up on the show and as usual we recommended the caller go to the AVG site and download free version of AVG Anti-virus.

Ok, that about does it for today's show. "As always practice safe computing, back up your hard drive, and update your virus scanner!"

You can download the show from the show's website.

Have a day. :-|
