Course Overview Good day everyone, I'm Orin Thomas, and I'm Troy Hunt, and welcome to our Play By Play on Care and Maintenance of Development Virtual Machines. I'm a Microsoft Regional Director, a decade-long MVP, I've written more than 40 books for Microsoft Press, have authored a bunch of courses for Pluralsight, and I'm completing a doctorate of information technology degree at Charles Sturt University. And I'm a Microsoft Regional Director and most valuable professional for developer security, and I have a passion for security. I've written many, many other Pluralsight courses on security, plus, I'm also the creator of the data breach notification service known as Have I been pwned. In this course, we'll discuss what you need to know about configuring and maintaining development virtual machines. Why use a development virtual machine, how you can configure them to get the best performance, how to use options, such as desktop switching, checkpoints, and solutions, such as Chocolatey to provision your VMs. How to connect your VMs to wireless networks, use options, such as nested virtualization, deduplication, enhance session mode, and give you some tips on how to get data into isolated VMs. But it doesn't end there. This course includes real life examples of how you can configure Hyper-V to create a perfect development environment within a virtual machine. To complete the course, all you need is a passion for learning how to make the most out of Hyper-V and virtual machines, and a spare hour to watch the course. I hope you'll join us on this journey to learn how to configure and manage development virtual machines, with the Care and Maintenance of Development Virtual Machines Play By Play, at Pluralsight.
