How do you know which OSR seminar is right for you? What options are available for seminar presentations?
Which Seminar Should You Take
Perhaps you, or your team, need to learn about Windows system software — internals, drivers, debugging, or file systems — but you’re not sure which OSR offering will best meet your needs.
Relax. We know that Windows system software can be a confusing area. That’s why we’re here to help! If you want personal help, or you have any questions on the items listed here, please do not hesitate to contact an OSR Seminar Consultant.
If you need to learn about Windows driver development, but aren’t quite sure where to start, you might find our article Getting Started Writing Windows Drivers helpful.
Locations and Options for Seminar Presentations
You can attend an OSR seminar in several different ways:
- Take one of our public seminars — We offer public seminars several times a year. Our list of upcoming seminars always appears on our homepage and the next date(s) for a given seminar are also listed as part of each seminar’s outline.
- Arrange a private seminar — If you have a group to train, we can host a seminar that’s customized to your needs. In most cases, it costs less to have a custom, private seminar for up to 15 attendees than it would cost for you to send even 8 or 10 people to one of our seminars. And, they can attend from your office, one of several offices, or even from home. The prices for our on-site seminars are all-inclusive so you always know the full cost in advance. For more information, check out our private training options.
- Combine training with a consulting or development engagement — it is very common to have a core training need, but also need help with existing code or a to-be-developed driver. For example, in the midst of developing a driver using internal resources, you may realize those resources don’t have all the necessary background necessary to ensure the driver is architecturally correct and uses best practices. In such a case, your team may benefit from a custom training class and a code review of your existing driver. Or, you have a driver that needs to be designed and implemented by experts, but want to ensure that internal resources are best prepared to take over responsibilities for maintaining and enhancing that driver. Again, a very common scenario is for OSR to engage to develop the driver, then, using that driver as an example, teach a custom, private seminar to the “takeover” team to ensure they have the necessary skills to support that driver through its lifecycle.
