Have you heard your IT admin friends talking about hitting the deployment wall, spending months creating an image? We’ve got just what you need to avoid the same pitfalls: Windows 8.1 Deployment Jump Start.
Find out how to deploy Windows 8.1 the "right way," from a team of MVPs and Microsoft experts, including the “Father of the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT).” They share real-life, practical experience gained from working with early adopters, and they offer tips on saving time, money, and hassle by automating part—or even all—of the process.
In this recorded session, featuring live Q&A, they start with the basics and then dive deep to teach you how to plan, configure, and manage client deployment to Windows-based computers in Microsoft System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager and the MDT. Why learn the hard way? Learn from the best, and jump that deployment wall!

Unfortunately I wasn't able to participate on 12 March. Will this course be available again, or to download, for people who missed it?
Yep, it sure will, DavidY65! We'll post the recorded version of the event to the MVA site next week so that you can watch it on-demand.
Great - thanks for replying! :)
I've missed this Jump Start because there should be some kind of issue with the Live Events page in the MVA portal:
It's been some weeks that no Jump Start appears in this list while, at this very moment, there are two programmed in the events.microsoftvirtualacademy.com/LobbyArea.aspx
Fundamentals of Lean Software Delivery Jump Start
Wednesday, March 19
Software-Defined Networking with Windows Server and System Center
Is it just my account or a general issue? Please, fix the Live Events page in the MVA portal so that I don't miss any other Jump Start ;-)
Thanks for the feedback, Jmontes. Things appear to be working as expected as far as I can see. If you run into issues again, please feel free to mail me directly at email@example.com so we can take a look.
Thank you Matthew.
Good news, DavidY65, Jmontes, and anyone else that's looking for the on-demand version of the Windows 8.1 Deployment course: it's now available on the MVA site: www.microsoft.com/.../Redirect2.ashx.
