Max Akbar, Commerce Server expert and former Senior Product Manager for the Commerce Server team, has announced his new training company and web site. Training resources include video tutorials, DVDs, PowerPoint presentations, codes samples, and on-site training. You can find more information on his Web site at http://www.commerceservertraining.com/.

Max recently left Microsoft to consult and train companies using Commerce Server. While this is a huge loss for Microsoft, it is a huge win for the Commerce Server community as there has been a noticeable lack of training resources available. Max is sure to do an excellent job filling this void. Additionally, Max is acting as the technical editor on my forthcoming book Professional Commerce Server 2007.

Best of luck, Max!
