Michael Crump, the man, the myth, the legend in his own [time|mind], shares this new free (reg-ware) eBook from Telerik, which is very manager-safe (i.e. formatted like a PowerPoint deck, lots of pictures, etc.. oh... wait... did I really say that out loud? yeah) view of the coming new .NET world.

Kidding aside, this format is great for those who want to get the higher level view of what's coming in the new .NET. Those co-workers who are not info-hounds like you, the dev's who just want the highlights, etc. It's only 47 pages and really is a nice, quick and informative read. And did I say it was free? :)
