With the release of the Windows 10 Creators Update (1703), we are introducing a preview version of the Network adapter (NetAdapter) Class extension for WDF. This brings together the productivity of WDF with the networking performance of NDIS. The goal of NetAdapter is to make it easy to write a great driver for your NIC.

The NDIS team has spent three years working on this, and have a lot of great information that they would like to share with you. The team recorded four videos to introduce NetAdapter to you. Here are the videos in the series:
