Event Details

TMurgent is bringing Tim Mangan and his world-renowned training back to The Netherlands, and now we focus exclusively on Packaging for MSIX.
The Masters Packaging for MSIX class will be run by TMurgent. This 4-day class is designed to accommodate students that are new to packaging, new to MSIX, and especially those with significant prior experience.
We will provide you with both theory and practical hands-on experience in our training lab.  We will cover the commonly used tooling from Microsoft, our own tools, and a few others as well.
We recommend the in-person classroom experience, however remote students are accepted in this class also.


The course is designed for people with a general background in IT and/or Packaging. We take students with or without prior experience in MSIX. Although Software Developers are not targeted for this course, and we will not be covering developer material, Developers are welcome.

There are no hard pre-requisites to be able to take the class, however, the following are helpful:

  • Knowledge and experience with general Microsoft Windows Administration.
  • Experience with other “packaging” techniques helpful.
  • Experience with Application Deployment.
  • Help Desk Experience.
The training site will provide desktop Computers to access the Labs.  You are welcome to bring your own VMs, on your laptop or back in your office via VPN, but we do provide all of the VMs you need. Remote students will provide their own VMs based on information we provide after registration.
