Some student quotes and recommendations:

"Tim Mangam is THE authority when it comes to AppV and MSIX packaging!"

"Excellent training course. Tim delivered the course material well, always giving relevant examples. He was always patient and took the time to ensure that we understood the concepts."

"This guy just rocks! Tim Mangan is the Pete Townshend of the App-V world. He was with Softricity early on to build the platform and created the first App-V training program for the company. He knows the product inside and out."

" I just finished attending a training with Tim on App-V. Having been to a number of these types of workshops, I can say that this was top-notch. The training was exceptional... no question went unanswered, and he made it a point that we understand the concepts presented. He has tremendous patience, always ensuring that we understood before moving forward. The course material was delivered at a comfortable pace. He is also simply a nice person to be around. I strongly recommend Tim as your App-V instructor."

"Thanks again for the great week of training, I've been busy working up some sequenced apps (including the SAP Front-End GUI that I started on during the class)."

"I just wanted to thank you for the best Training class I have ever had the pleasure to experience. The pace was excellent and the coverage of application virtualization was extremely through. Your friendliness and the ease that you were able to field all the questions that the class was able to throw at you made for a training experience to remember."

The three major portions of the class are:

  • Concepts: Provides an in-depth understanding of the underlying concepts of Packaging, especially for Application Virtualization and MSIX. We also cover the "Windows API", from the prospective of the IT Pro - helping you to understand how the app intends to integrate with the OS and the End-User.  With this core knowledge in place, you are now ready to learn the packaging techniques.
  • App-V Sequencing: The heart of the class. Demonstration of "best practice" techniques and techniques to tackle a variety of application types that do not deploy easily.
  • MSIX Packaging: The other heart of the class. Demonstration of "best practice" techniques and techniques to package in MSIX and Psf, and issues to look out for and alternatives to consider.
