In this course, Windows 10 Internals: Systems and Processes, you'll learn about the processes behind Windows 10. First, you'll discover the unified kernel that spans across devices, from small Internet of Things (IoT) devices, to phones, to laptops and servers and even unique devices like XBOX One and Hololens. Next, you'll dig into enhancements and new features in the Windows 10 system architecture and explore various types of processes, including the support for the Windows Subsystem for Linux. Finally, you'll take a look at Jobs that manages processes and their newest extension called Silos, that provide the base support for containers under Windows Server 2016.

Course Overview Hi everyone, my name is Pavel Yosifovich, and I welcome you to my course, Windows 10 Internals: Systems and Processes. I'm a developer, trainer, and author, and have been swimming in the Windows Internals ocean for many years now. Windows 10 had 5 releases on a biyearly basis until now, adding more features and enhancements, some obvious, some not so obvious. This course is about under the hood stuff. Some of the major topics we'll cover include Windows 10 versions, the system architecture in Windows 10, various types of processes, and jobs and silos. By the end of this course, you should understand everything you need to know about processes and jobs in Windows 10. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the basics of Windows internals, such as the basics of processes, threads, DLLs, and virtual memory. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about the inner workings of Windows 10 with the Windows 10 Internals: Systems and Processes course at Pluralsight.
