This is kind of old news since I’ve had the first lessons out there for a few weeks, but I wanted to wait until we had a substantial number posted before announcing it. We are working on a complete management pack development training that is being published on Microsoft Virtual Academy. This is based on content that we have delivered at various conferences and onsite to specific customers over the last several years.
Since this is a training for advanced management pack development, the training is primarily focused on using Visual Studio Authoring Extensions. We present a sample application early in the training and walk through the creation of a complete management pack through the different lessons. While we don’t have them posted yet, I am planning on making the Visual Studio solution for each completed lesson available for download.
There are currently 8 lessons available with a couple more in final production. I’m working to get a lesson or two completed each week, and we will be posting them as they are completed. From this point forward, I’ll make sure to send a tweet each time we post a new lesson.
