At the WinHEC Workshop delivered last week, we hosted a large number of partner engineers in the Windows hardware community. The audience included: OEMs, ODMs, IDHs, IHVs, peripheral manufacturers, and driver developers. During these sessions we delivered updated content on the latest Microsoft products and hosted hands-on technical training so engineers could become familiar with the latest tools for Windows 10.
From Convergence to Universal: Provides an overview of Microsoft Universal Driver Architecture, and helps you understand why the universal driver mode is very important for our ecosystem. Universal driver development and porting is also introduced.
Testing Devices with the Hardware Lab Kit (HLK): Provides an update on using the HLK. The HLK automates the hardware and driver testing for determining compatibility and ship readiness of your product running Windows. This session introduces fundamental HLK testing concepts, provides an overview of the HLK and its capabilities, and shows the kit's role in the development lifecycle. Topics include: The Windows Hardware Compatibility Program, Walkthrough of key testing concepts, Hardware Lab Kit uses and capabilities, Introduction to the HLK User Interface and HLK status update until June 2015.
