A hands-on class where you will learn the concepts, techniques, and latest tricks to be successful and packaging and configuring applications for delivery within the Enterprise using both Microsoft App-V and MSIX.

Whether you use modern or traditional application delivery methods, the applications your company depends on must be customized, and in many cases remediated to work in today’s desktops. MSIX is the future for new applications, you will also need App-V because MSIX will be much more work for older apps and is currently incompatible with many of your apps.

The three major portions of the class are:
Concepts: Provides an in-depth understanding of the underlying concepts of Packaging, especially for Application Virtualization and MSIX. We also cover the "Windows API", from the prospective of the IT Pro - helping you to understand how the app intends to integrate with the OS and the End-User.  With this core knowledge in place, you are now ready to learn the packaging techniques.
App-V Sequencing: The heart of the class. Demonstration of "best practice" techniques and techniques to tackle a variety of application types that do not deploy easily.
MSIX Packaging: The other heart of the class. Demonstration of "best practice" techniques and techniques to package in MSIX and Psf, and issues to look out for and alternatives to consider.
