KeyStone Learning Systems (KeyStone™) and Apress® today announced a strategic partnership thereby uniting the worlds of technical publications and video-based training.

By bundling leading technical publications for Developers, KeyStone Learning Systems and Apress are empowering its developer community with the best programming, application and web development authors, instructors and technical experts that the world has to offer. The initial co-marketing partnership and bundle arrangement will be for KeyStone Learning Systems’ “Microsoft ADO.NET 2.0 Essentials” video-based training course and Apress’ “Pro ADO.NET 2.0,” authored and instructed by Microsoft MVP, Sahil Malik.

"KeyStone Learning Systems has been the leader in video-based instructor training for more than 15 years," said Larry Cates, CEO of KeyStone Learning Systems. "This training bundle will bring the engaging video training content that our customers have come to expect and combine it with the depth of content that Apress provides to the community of programmers and developers."

"As the leading video-based developer training solutions provider, KeyStone Learning Systems continually offers its customers new developer courses and resources to help them develop their business-critical applications," said Larry Cates.

"Our ADO.NET 2.0 Essentials course and book bundle takes a new approach to .NET, focusing on the practical tasks like connecting to the database, retrieving data, and working with transactions, rather than rehashing much of the MSDN documentation,” said Sahil Malik, author and instructor.
