September publics

We've posted our September public seminar series. We're offering Windows Internals for I.T. Professionals (5 days) and Windows Network Driver Development for NDIS 6 (also 5 days).

Future publics

We're planning a week-long advanced Windows debugging seminar, and maybe a Windows internals seminar aimed at WinRT (Windows Store App) developers… likely for the week of November 17. 

Request a public (or virtual) seminar

Are you interested in attending a public seminar on one of our other topics? Would you like it at a different location, or as a virtual (online) seminar, maybe in a different time zone? Please, email us directly and let us know what you want!

LinkedIn group for Windows Internals

Although there are arguably too many LinkedIn groups in related areas already, we created one specifically for discussion of Windows internals matters. (Surprisingly, there wasn't one.) Join it here

Windows Internals, 7th edition

After the release of each new major version of Windows, I.T. professionals, developers of all stripes, and OEMs eagerly await the publication of the next edition of the book (or, more recently, set of books) that documents how it all works inside. 

Azius principals Brian Catlin and Jamie Hanrahan have signed with Microsoft Press to write Windows Internals, 7th Edition, Book 1: "User Mode." The 7th edition will cover Windows 8.1 and Server 2012 R2. To be released in late 2014, Book 1 will primarily cover user mode aspects (the internals of application support) and system management mechanisms. New coverage for the 7th edition will include .NET, graphics and the desktop, Windows RT, Windows Store applictions, and server management features, as well as expanded coverage of networking. 

Books 2 and 3 are still in the planning stages, but our current plans are for Book 2 to cover kernel mode components and mechanisms, and Book 3, new for this edition, will describe the architecture and operation of the various Windows device driver models. 

Of course, Windows Internals, 6th Edition, by Mark Russinovich, David Solomon, and Alex Ionescu, will be the starting point for this work. (We contributed to the 6th edition and are credited as such in the introduction.) 

Microsoft's Windows Driver kit forum

Have you visited this forum lately? The top professionals in the field are there, and Azius' Brian Catlin is a moderator. If you're not using this resource, you should be.

At Microsoft's request, Azius developed a series of web-based video training modules for participants in
Microsoft's Shared Source program. If you're a Shared Source licensee, you can use this resource today to help you find your way around the gigabytes of directory trees. 

Certain Shared Source licensees can of course still take advantage of our two-day "Introduction to Code Center Premium" seminar, or our customizable five-day "Code Center Premium Workshop," held on-site at your facility.

Additional seminars for Shared Source licensees will be announced soon! Contact your Shared Source
