InnerWorkings steps up and offers free Silverlight training for members

August 14th 2007 in 2558, 3118, 4499, 4959, 5033 – a C#.Net centric community received good news today – namely, InnerWorkings are offering all of its members FREE Silverlight training.

The story about how this came about is quite funny. But, i’ve been on the Beta test for me.dium for a while and as it’s just been released it was also published on Facebook and here one of the guys on the me.dium team, Tobias Peggs, introduced me to Brian Finnerty, who’s involved with InnerWorkings. He noticed that I ran the community and wanted to offer our members something special.

Not only have they provided 1hr free Silverlight trianing, but they’ve also extended a discount code which entitles the members to a 20% discount on all training packages/drills in their catalogue. Guys, this is a limited time only offer so better head over, register at, and check out the promotion they’ve created, just for us!!!

But i was rather surprised […]

I’m happy to say that after a few emails back and fourth, where Valentina asked me a couple of questions about previously installed products/apps, she’s found the bug, […]
