Announcing MS Virtual Labs – VIDEOS

A while back I started working with the Microsoft Virtual Labs team to explore the possibility of turning their labs into videos that customers could watch BEFORE doing the labs. The video version can contextualize the labs and provide for a Watch Before You Do opportunity as well as serve as reference in case users need a playback during the actual lab exercise.

Below, we have made available a subset of the Microsoft Virtual Labs (EXPRESS). These are quick labs that allow customers to see specific capabilities of our development platform.  I hope you enjoy it, give us feedback and remember: One Virtual Lab A Day, Keeps Obsolescence Away 🙂

    I like the idea of making videos of the virtual labs.  That way, I wouldn’t waste my time taking the SQL Server 2008 lab that supposedly teaches Change Data Capture but, since it’s based upon CTP4 and not the final RTM, has a lot of wrong/bad information in it.  Since those types of labs remain out on the Microsoft web site for years before somebody realizes how bad they are and replaces them with corrected versions, a lot of people are going to find out that what they learned in that particular lab doesn’t work with SQL Server 2008 SP1.
