I’ve missed the boat on signing up for a free trial of Windows 365. Microsoft says they have seen significant demand for Windows 365 and have had to pause the free trial program until they can provision additional capacity. That’s probably a good thing as my focus is entirely on learning and implementing Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD).
I signed up to receive notification when trials resume and have also been saving links to reading and research materials from various sources, primarily from Twitter, which has an awesome technical community.
As always, my approach to learning a new technology is to research and read as much as I can on the technology to try and learn from the experience of community members to prepare myself in advance and only then do I start hands-on experimenting in labs and/or trials.
Since AVD will be taking up a lot of my time in the coming weeks I don’t foresee having the capacity to look into Windows 365 much. So for the time being I wanted to collate all the reading materials here in this post for easy access as and when I’m ready to do dive into the subject.
ConfigMgrDogs on Twitter: “For those trying out #Windows365 for Business, you need to sign-in to https://t.co/ALOoLgxd8h for cloud PC provisioning to complete. Signing up is not enough – login to kick off the provisioning!”
I will update this post with more links that I find interesting and worth reading.
