I’ve been reviewing a new training video series for Packt Publishing that has been authored by my WMUG buddy and EMS MVP Gerry Hampson (@GerryHampson). 

The series is a great way of introducing the solution to anyone wanting to get started in Configuration Manager Current Branch, or to anyone who wants a refresh or sanity check on certain areas of the product.

Course 1 of the series is available to pre-order now from here https://www.packtpub.com/virtualization-and-cloud/introducing-system-center-configuration-manager-video.
