Besides concentrating on mastering languages like C#, VB.NET or VC++, the patterns and practices on how to achieve the functionalities should not be neglected. Developers used to download patterns and practices webcasts and ebooks separately then store them in different locations in the local drive. This will basically lead to searching nightmare when the developers want to use the materials in the later time.
The good news is, there is a DVD that can be downloaded and all the webcasts and ebooks of patterns and practices are compiled at a single location. This DVD includes new content for .NET Framework 3.0. It also gathered the featured patterns & practices, Enterprise Library 3.0 and Software Factories.
