Windows Device Driver Development

We've been writing drivers for Windows since the beta releases of Windows NT 3.1! We offer seminars on a wider variety of driver models than anyone else in the industry (in fact, more than the rest of the industry combined).

ID Title Level, etc Summary
DRV101 Windows Drivers Concepts Basic
1 day lecture only

A one-day introduction to the various Windows device driver environments. Covers all current Windows operating systems and all driver models.

DRV150 Windows Internals Essentials for Device Driver Developers Intermediate
1 day lecture only

A guided tour of the internal design and implementation of the current Windows operating systems, with particular emphasis on those aspects that are important to driver developers.

DRV201 Core Windows Driver Model (WDM) Development Intermediate
5 days with labs
3 days lecture only

Teaches you how to develop, install, and debug the most common types of WDM device drivers for Windows operating systems.

DRV203 Developing Windows Driver Foundation (KMDF and UMDF 2.0) Drivers Intermediate
5 days with labs

This seminar teaches you how to write, package, install, and debug drivers using the Windows Driver Foundation models: Kernel Mode Driver Frameworks (KMDF) and User Mode Driver Frameworks (UMDF 2.0). These are the driver models recommended by Microsoft for all devices for which a more specialized driver model is not available.
