Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name's Sami Laiho. Welcome to my course, Working with Memory Dumps and Debugging Using Sysinternals Tools. I'm a senior technical fellow at my own company, Adminize. Most students come to my courses saying that a blue screen is the worst thing that can happen in Windows. That is far from the truth, as PSODs are done by the operating system willingly. In this course you will learn how to use blue screens as an effective tool and how to analyze why they happened. After this course you will be seeing a blue screen and going, yes. Some of the major topics that we will cover include how to debug applications and operating systems, how to create memory dumps, and how to analyze blue screens. By the end of this course you'll know how to work with debugging tools and memory dumps. Before beginning the course you should have viewed the first course in this learning path on the Sysinternals toolkit on Pluralsight. I hope you'll join me on this Working with Memory Dumps and Debugging Using Sysinternals Tools at Pluralsight.
