Last week my colleagues in the server evangelism team published the Windows Server 2008 Developer Kit for beta 3 to the Microsoft.com download center. This kit contains the 15 presentations and 7 hands-on labs that we originally developed for the Longhorn Server Touchdown training program we have been delivering to our UK ISV early adopters. The hands-on labs are all based on the DinnerNow scenario, however, they have been designed so they can easily be installed and used independent of the DinnerNow sample.
The content has been packaged together as a single self-extracting, download (57MB). You can download the kit from here.
It covers everything from WCF/WF to Powershell to IIS 7.0.
The kit can be installed on Vista, Windows XP and Windows Server 2003 (oh … and Windows Server 2008)
