MSDN MagazineDo you read MSDN Magzine?  If you do, you might want to check this blog out, if you don't cause it's too much, you might want to check this out as well!

MSDN Magazine

Do you read Microsoft's MSDN Magazine?  If you do, cool!  If you don't, do you skip it cause it's too much?  Ya, I've worked for a company (or two, DOH!) in my past who thought subscriptions like that were too fancy and too expensive (DOH!).  But here's a something everyone can enjoy!  Past months are available online for download!  FOR FREE!  Ya, you read that right, FREE!  The complete electronic versions!!!!  They go back to Jan 2003!  Too cool!

Oddly enough though they aren't in XPS format, but in PDF.....things that make you go hhhmmmmmm????  They are big though, average size (for the past year) is 17MB (min = 12MB, max = 20MB). 

Past MSDN copies

Now that you can get some past articles you've been looking to DIVE INTO, it's time to grab a coffee and get coding!  (ok, ok, so you're not quite dying to get any of these, but once you download one or two, I'm pretty sure you'll be hooked on them and will return for future versions of "past months.")

Looks like they have a lot more advertising though. That may be why the size is larger.

Howdy, yup they rock, been reading them for about 3 years now (after discovering they were free :) )... However, since I got my iPad, Ive found this is the best way to read them now :)

So when you picking up an iPad... Ummm I mean eReader :)

Re: Do you read MSDN Magazine?

Very cool! Well, about reading them for 3yrs, not the iPad thing. haha BUT as a fully functional eReader + email + browser + presenter + + + + + +.... oh man, it's getting hard to compete with the iPads. Hey BALLMER! Get your head out of your.......ok, this is turning nasty, I need a coffee.

Thanks for the comment Shane, glad you enjoyed the blog and link.

re MSJ
Man, that's going back a few years. You must be an "experienced" developer? DOH! HAHAHAH :> jk Souheil. I had to get you back for the "when you are breain dead" comment! :> hahaahah

But in all seriousness, there are some interesting articles. I find they have a lot of 100 and 400, not too many in the middle. But when I need to get a leg up on learning something, the 100 aren't too bad.

Thanks for leaving a comment. Have a good one!
