Layered Technologies Announces Microsoft(R) Expression(R) Web Partnership

Layered Technologies to Provide FREE Design Tool and Training With the Purchase of Any New Microsoft OS

Layered Technologies, a leading worldwide provider of “on demand” IT infrastructure, announces today a new Microsoft® Expression® Web partnership.

Microsoft® Expression® Web is a professional design tool to create modern, standards-based sites that deliver superior quality on the Web. With the purchase of any new Microsoft operating system, Layered Technologies will provide Microsoft Expressions Web free of charge, as well as 12-months of access to training for the complete Expressions suite of applications and ASP.NET.

Expression Web provides Web professionals with everything they need to build attractive, high-quality web sites using HTML, DHTML, CSS, and XHTML. With Expression Web, professional designers can easily take advantage of the best of dynamic website design, enabling users to quickly and efficiently design, develop, and maintain standards-based Web applications with seamless integration with ASP.NET 2.0 and Visual Studio 2005.

Expression Web provides seamless integration with Visual Studio 2005 and ASP.NET 2.0, enabling designers and developers to interact using products that they are most comfortable with. Designers can easily lay out XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, and basic dynamic functionality using Expression Web and take advantage of many ASP.NET 2.0-specific features like Master Pages for templating, and drag and drop controls. The project can then be handed over to developers using Visual Studio 2005, enabling them to extend the functionality through advanced server-side code and business logic.

“We are pleased to offer this great program that meets the needs of developer clients and provides them with new resources and tools to increase their productivity, while also bringing to the forefront new technologies and integration functionality,” said John Pozadzides, Vice President & CMO of Layered Technologies.

For a limited time, Layered Technologies and Microsoft have partnered with Total Training™ to provide an annual subscription to over 49 hours of high quality online training for ASP.NET and Expression Studio, absolutely FREE. The training is broken down into two different modules:
