The Silverlight Tour and AgiliTrain would like to welcome our newest instructor: Russell Fustino. Russ brings a great pedagree as a former Microsoft Evangelist and co-host of the Russ’s Toolshed Channel 9 Show. We’re excited to have him teaching for the Silverlight Tour!
From his bio:

Russ also has expertise in developing .NET and Web-based solutions using Microsoft tools as well as Internet Audio and Video producing. Russ is now independent and President and founder of Russ’ ToolShed Network, Inc and Mentor at Solid Quality Mentors. Previously, Russ worked for Microsoft for 12 years as a Developer Evangelist.
