The Windows Server 2008 Developer Training Kit (Beta 3) includes a set of hands-on-labs and presentations for technologies such as IIS7, Management, WCF, WF, Windows CardSpace, Windows PowerShell, Virtualization and the Transactional File System (TxF).
The content was originally created by Microsoft's Developer & Platform Evangelism group as part of the Windows Server 2008 Touchdown training activities.
The seven hands-on labs included in this kit are based on the DinnerNow sample application. The entire source code for the DinnerNow sample application can be downloaded from codeplex (see the related resources), however, this sample is not required for using the developer training kit.
Although this kit is intended to show developers how to build applications that target Windows Server 2008 technologies, the kit can be installed on Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows Server 2003. The hands-on labs and most of the technologies covered in this training kit also apply to Windows Vista.
