This project has the primary goal of delivering scenario based and hands-on guidance for the planning, setup, configuration and usage of Visual Studio Lab Management, backed by custom VM Template automation for reference environments.
The content is packaged in 3 separate zip files to give you the choice of selective downloads. The default download is the first of the listed packages:
Guidance, which includes scenario based practical guidance and frequently asked questions.
Hands-on Labs (HOL), which includes the HOL documents that provide walkthroughs of the technology, based on the guidance
HOL Package, which includes a HOL environment setup package which allows you to setup the HOL environment in your own environment

The content for this project is provided in individual packages to allow you to be selective in what you get:
