There will be an App-V Book!!!!!

We finally made the decision and work is well under way.  We will publish a book on App-V!

The book will be focused on being a reference for the App-V Client.  We have a ton of material in the Companion Guides from our “Masters Level” App-V Training Classes that we do not really teach to so much as refer to in the class.  We decided to create a book from this that details everything you need to know about the client.  The estimate is that this will be a 200 or so page book.

I’m not going to make any promises right now about when it will be completed.  We have a base of about 180 pages done, but are busy updating to include the new stuff in 4.6 that we couldn’t talk about until the public release.

  1. Great news, missed this post at first. I was thinking about doing the same [writing a book about App-V], but just started collecting information so I am not anywhere close to the 200 pages you are talking about. It is so hard to find good information about App-V. It is really fragmented, everywhere on the internet you find small pieces of tips,tricks,usefull information, but no good book until now. For instance the ins and outs about DSC are very hard to find. You did an excellent job by publishing a whitepaper (and video) of App-V 4.6 DSC and Transparency but there is so much more that you need to know to be a good ‘App-V sequencer’
    PS: how do you call people that make sequences actually… the sequencer is the name of the tool you use to create them?

    1. We borrow the word “packagers” for people that use the sequencer. Either that, or “magicians” 😉

      As to the book, writing is complete and is in technical review, so stay tuned…
