Here’s a glimpse of what we’ll cover:
What is a “Jump Start” Course?
Jump Start training classes are specifically designed for experienced technologists and IT leaders whose jobs demand they know how to best leverage a new Microsoft technology. These advanced courses assume a certain level of expertise and domain knowledge, so they move quickly and cover topics in a fashion that enables teams to recognize progress quickly.
Suggested Audience Not sure you’re ready? Suggested prerequisite skills include real-world experience with Windows Server 2008 R2, virtualisation and datacentre management. This session is tailored to these types of roles: - IT Professional - IT Decision Maker - Network Administrators - Storage/Infrastructure Administrators & Architects

What’s the high-level overview?
Day 1 will focus on “Platform” (Hyper-V, virtualization architecture, high availability & clustering)
Day 2 will focus on “Management” (System Centre Suite, SCVMM 2012 Beta, Opalis, Private Cloud solutions)
Day 3 will focus on “VDI” (VDI Infrastructure/architecture, v-Alliance, application delivery via VDI)
What is a “Jump Start” course? A “Jump Start” course is “team-taught” by two expert instructors in an engaging radio talk show style format. The idea is to deliver readiness training on strategic and emerging technologies that drive awareness at scale before Microsoft Learning develops mainstream Microsoft Official Courses (MOC) that map to certifications. All sessions are professionally recorded and distributed through MS Showcase, Channel 9, Zune Marketplace and iTunes.
