Working on management pack guides, my attention is generally on how you can use the management packs we create at Microsoft. Next week, however, I'm attending a daylong workshop on authoring management packs. I'm hoping to learn a lot (unless it all goes over my head!).
But if I didn't have the opportunity of this workshop, how would I go about learning to create management packs? Well, first I would download the System Center Authoring Console. Next, I would download and read the Management Pack Authoring Guide. Finally, I would take advantage of all the great resources at the AuthorMPs site.
I'll let you know next week how the workshop goes!
