Hungry for some more developer resources or more developer labs? My team just released a Windows Server 2008 Developer Training Kit. This kit was originally designed and used as part of our early adoption program for ISVs (known as Touchdown). The kit includes 15 presentations on topics ranging from IIS7 to the .NET Framework 3.0 technologies, HPC, and virtualization. It also includes 7 hands-on labs, all based on the DinnerNow scenario. These labs include:
You can download the kit from here:
After downloading the kit, simply run the self extracting exe, select an installation location, and press the install button. The files contained in the kit will be extracted to your local machine.
As part of the kit we have created some navigation pages that allow you to browse the list of presentations and hands-on labs. Once the installation is complete, the default navigation page will be displayed automatically. You can view the list of presentations and labs either by technology or based on the 4-day agenda we used for the in-person training events.
Congratulations and thanks to the numerous folks in evangelism who have contributed to this content, including: Jason Olson, David Aiken, Matt Winkler, Nigel Watling, Brett Hill, Volker Will, and Justin Smith.
