As technology evolves and shapes our world, the need to stay updated and share knowledge becomes crucial. Today, I am thrilled to announce that I, Kevin Kaminski, will present three engaging and enlightening sessions at TechMentor Redmond this year.

Unveiling the Future of Application Delivery with Winget

The first is a hands-on lab workshop: TM02 – “Working with Winget.” This session delves into the potential of Winget as the future of application delivery. We will explore the nuances of getting your application packages into Winget, emphasizing the construction of a private repository built on Azure. By the end of the workshop, participants will have created and published their own Winget application package.

Key Takeaways:

  • Comprehending the requirements for a private repository

Introduction to Windows Autopatch: The New Age of Patching

Finally, we have TW07 – “Fast Focus: Introducing Windows Autopatch,” an introductory-intermediate level session. This talk underscores the automation shift in Windows patching strategy and how it liberates administrators from micromanaging patch releases. It covers the history of patch management on Windows, introduces Autopatch concepts, and outlines the best practices to implement Autopatch in your environment successfully.

Key Takeaways:
