Knoxville, Tenn. (PRWEB) May 31, 2013
With today’s launch of WintellectNOW (http://www.WintellectNOW.com), the worldwide developer community has on demand access to the same training Microsoft developers receive but from the comfort and ease of their own laptop, tablet, slate or mobile device. WintellectNOW delivers real-world, ready-to-use knowledge, tools and techniques so that novice to advanced technologists can expertly develop software. WintellectNOW is written and produced by the instructors who train Microsoft’s worldwide development teams as well as Wintellect consultants who work daily on large-scale applications for Fortune 50 customers. This real-world know-how is now shared with the worldwide developer community via WintellectNOW.
“We are thrilled to launch WintellectNOW,” said Lewis Frazer III, co-founder, president and CEO of Wintellect, the power behind WintellectNOW. “As a company that has developed a core part of our training business based upon on-site, in-person training, we view WintellectNOW as a strong complement to our instructor-led in-person and virtual training offerings. With developer teams spread around the world, WintellectNOW provides a scalable world-class training service for companies that reaches across time zones and is offered at a reasonable price point.”
Quality, world-class instructors
WintellectNOW instructors are developers and consultants who work on the products they teach every day providing students with real-world, practical experience that they can deploy in their work and projects immediately.
“With WintellectNOW, we don’t deliver theory, we deliver real-world, practical, applicable teaching,” said John Carpenter, General Manager, WintellectNOW. “In fact, many of our instructors are senior consultants from Wintellect’s Consulting division who provide insights from their experiences working on some of the largest enterprise solutions.”

With initial course selections ranging from .NET debugging, PowerShell, jQuery, and HTML5 to Windows Store Apps and more, the library offers an array of learning for technically focused developers.
“We will continually add fresh new content to the site,” said Carpenter. “While we will have an initial focus on Microsoft, we are committed to offering technologies beyond Microsoft that will be made available in future content offerings.”
Expert instructor perspectives
“Wintellect has always been known as the company that has the most hard-core training around,” said John Robbins, Wintellect co-founder who regularly teaches the debugging courses. “With instructor-led training, scalability has been a challenge, but no longer. With WintellectNOW, everyone can benefit from the same training that Microsoft has used to train their own product team developers, testers, and PMs for the last 13 years. Our training clients love how our extensive, cutting-edge, consulting practice is forefront in all our classes and that same real-world perspective flows through every session at WintellectNOW.”
“I am thrilled to offer companies of all sizes and in various geographical locations the opportunity to experience the same kind of training Wintellect has provided to Microsoft and other larger companies for well over a decade now in a cost-effective and time-flexible manner,” said Jeffrey Richter, Wintellect co-founder and author of several best-selling .NET Framework and Win32 programming books. “This service rounds out Wintellect’s long-standing consulting and instructor-led training divisions quite nicely and provides our customers with a great complement of services.”
“We’re incredibly excited about WintellectNOW because of the proven demand for in-depth technical training in an on-demand format,” said Jeff Prosise, Wintellect co-founder and a leader in Windows Store apps, jQuery, HTML5, and Windows Phone training. “Many of the sessions in our library are the same sessions we deliver in a classroom setting to Microsoft employees all over the world, and now, for the first time, others can access this content, too.”
