Microsoft has introduced a new generation of software technology called .Net. The basis of .Net technology is the use of web services--small software applications that are written in extensible markup language (XML). XML is a programming language that is highly flexible and is intended to share data through networks. .Net is designed to aid in connecting devices, people and information.

There are some basic components to .Net technology--"smart" clients, web services, developer tools, and servers. Smart clients are devices that can host and distribute XML based information that can be shared anywhere and at anytime. Web services is a host of different software applications that are used to share and transfer data to devices such as "smart" clients. Servers act as the agents that enable the flow of information and developer tools allow users to build and run web services programs.

Microsoft .Net Education

To fully take advantage of this exciting technology several education providers and Microsoft itself have developed .Net training programs. Microsoft operates the .Net training program that allows professionals to become knowledgeable .Net users. Microsoft provides a .Net specialization category for their Microsoft Certified Application Developer program as well as their Certified Solution Developer program.

Community colleges and other education providers have developed courses to educate users and developers of the capabilities of .Net technology. These courses provide hands on experience in creating and using various .Net applications. Courses can cover an overview of .Net technologies to very specific topics such as developing web services with .Net. The costs involved with these courses can be as high as several thousand dollars.
