Parts of sysdev.microsoft.com are being transitioned to a new portal. The new portal has an overhauled infrastructure to allow for much greater stability and predictability. In addition, we have a new UI that's much easier to use. Our initial release will include HCK/HLK device submissions and the ability to share your drivers and publish to Windows Update. By the end of 2017, we'll also include Systems, WLK, and attestation signing.
Our new portal begins rolling out at the end of October. Over the next six weeks, we invite you to test the new portal and let us know your thoughts. To get you started, we've created the following ten user accounts just for your company. You can get started with the new portal by going to https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/dashboard/hardware.
We've also prepared a package of materials to help (http://aka.ms/PortalPackagePreviewMaterials); it contains written documentation, as well as a sample package and signing certificate. Finally, there's a series of videos describing and demonstrating the new features available on Channel 9 (https://channel9.msdn.com/Blogs/WinHEC/Introducing-the-new-Hardware-Developer-Center-Dashboard-Part-1).
If you have any questions or feedback on the new Dashboard, just look for the Feedback button at the bottom right of any of our pages. Select 'Hardware Dashboard Preview' as your feedback area and we'll review your comments. Please don't reply to this e - mail; it is not monitored.
Without further ado, here are your accounts! These accounts are just for this preview and will be replaced when we release. At release, the accounts you currently use to log-in to Sysdev will be the ones you log-in with for the new Dev Center.
