Thank You ITProTV!!!

Always the observant one, I have driven by the Florida highway exit for ITProTV many times! I guess I really did think their HQ would be in California! It turns out, Gainesville, Florida is famous for more than just the Gators (and gators). 

Many IT training companies have thought about trying the ITProTV “Hollywood” approach, but few even try and execute it. Those that do typically fail rather spectacularly and publicly. ITProTV, on the other hand, nails it.

I am currently enjoying their Intro to Ansible course and quickly remembered why so many companies were thinking of trying to lead at this (I was with one called KnowledgeNet many years back). Two trainers are way better than one, and they do actual professional video production. And we all love watching television. In fact, this allows you to binge (even in the free account tier!)

ITProTV absolutely pops and sounds terrific on today’s mobile devices. I am not sure about you, but after hammering away at a keyboard for hours each day, I really like propping the pillows and jamming some DevOps training on the iPhone 11 Huge Max or whatever the heck it’s called.

Enjoy my quick little photo tour, which really undersells how amazing it is. We are talking numerous uniquely designed sets that are fun to perform in, and even more fun to watch. I can’t wait to appear in some upcoming episodes!

Enjoy a Free Personal Account that never expires. Should you want to upgrade, that starts as a free trial. Entire starter courses are in the free account tier, like CompTIA’s IT Fundamentals. A perfect first step for an upcoming addict. 🙂 In a super cool move, they even broadcast live into the free tier. Always something cool to check out. Here is a link to the personal plans. There are also business plans available.

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:

Windows 10 MD-101 Completes This Week!

MD-101

You heard it here first! I was striving to complete all of the MD-101 training for Windows 10 at CBT Nuggets in the month of June 2019, and that is happening!

There are 5 major sections of the course. Once all five are live on the site – we will gather them together for you in the correct order in a nice MD-101 playlist.

Microsoft Windows 10: Deploy and Update

Microsoft Windows 10: Manage and Protect

Microsoft Windows 10: Policies and Profiles

Microsoft Windows 10: Manage Apps and Data

Microsoft Windows 10: Advanced Management Topics

I realize that many of you want to get started right away – so do not delay. In fact, later today – part 3 from the list above will be live on the site!

Remember, this training is about much more than Windows 10 and includes:

  • SCCM
  • Azure
  • Azure AD
  • Intune

And a bunch of other stuff I cannot recall as I type this! 🙂
