Microsoft Ignite

November 4–8, 2019

Orange County Convention Center | Orlando, FL

Yep – I will be enjoying the Microsoft Ignite conference again this year, and I so very much hope to meet you there. I will have buckets and buckets (or blobs and blobs) of great CBT Nuggets swag at the event to hand out!

If you cannot make it (the event is presently wait-listed!), have no fear. I will be attending plenty of excellent sessions on Windows Server 2019, Windows 10, and Azure for you! Of course, I will be frantically note-taking in those sessions and throughout the conference.

Hope to see you there!

Microsoft to Alter Windows 10 Major Upgrade Program

August 1, 2019 at 12:44 pm

Windows 10 Updates

Are you one of those that really starts to stress when you realize that it is Spring or Fall and your Windows 10 has just alerted you that a major update is ready for your beloved PC? I suppose you have a right to be given that many report such fun occurrences such as:

  • The update never completes
  • The update leaves the system unusable
  • The update affects hardware components – in other words – they don’t work anymore
  • The update changes features that you were accustomed to

Well, you will be thrilled to know that Microsoft is really re-thinking the twice per year major update approach. It appears they will move to a ONE MAJOR UPDATE per year approach. This would come (fittingly) in the Spring. Then the Fall update would be a minor one (perhaps fixing stuff from Spring?)

What do you think about the new plan? Let me know in the comments area below.

Windows 10 (MD-101) Available on CBT Nuggets!

Windows 10 MD-101

The complete playlist awaits you for MD-101:

Recommended Approach to MD-100 and MD-101

Are you getting ready for the MD-100 and MD-101 exams? I highly recommend you study for both – and then take the exams back to back. There is plenty of carryover between the two exams just as we had in the last version of Windows 10 exams. Specifically, there are elements of MD-101 that make their way into MD-100! Not so much carryover in the other direction.

MD-100 can be found here:

The Full Nugget Coverage for MD-101

Here are the glorious Nuggets of knowledge that await you. These Nuggets include step-by-step demonstration, and also feature many hands-on labs where you will take control of your own Windows 10 infrastructure. The Hands-On Labs are real Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016 systems! We do not do simulations!
