The Azure Immersion Workshop for Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) is a 1-day hands-on workshop for IT Professionals (TDM, IT Implementers). This workshop provides participants with both the knowledge and skills to accelerate designing and implementing a virtual desktop infrastructure on Azure.
The workshop covers product overview, design and architecture, best practices, deployment and management plane options, user profiles and data storage, along with third party tools and licensing considerations.
