Moving a development team forward - "scrimages"

In this blog article, David L details how he implemented a "Developer training regime" at a client in order to move the team's .Net development skills forward and prepare them to migrate to ASP.Net 2.0.

Apart from the (slightly dubious) American Football metaphor, the concept is remarkably similar to the Developer-to-Developer training that Angel Solutions and Mandogroup have already implemented, and that I intend on implementing here at In4Tek.

The article makes a good read, however, and is a timely reminder about the value of your developer's skill-sets and keeping them up to date, but also serves as a reminder that the training should perhaps have rather more focus on the end goal (in this case of migration) than be open-ended as the Mandogroup training has been thus far.
