With the Windows Store for Business retiring, the backend infrastructure for application delivery was overhauled. Windows gained a Microsoft package manager, much like early Linux distributions had their package managers. While we might not be eager for a new package manager, the technology opens up more flexibility than the Windows Store model, enabling developers and application consumers more flexibility.

We will start with a brief history of package managers and see how this technology can be the foundation of application delivery while allowing for multiple application management scenarios. Diving further into this technology, we will break apart the management and packaging considerations for applications delivered using Winget.

The most crucial part is understanding the vision and seeing why Winget will affect application delivery for DevOps and traditional application delivery use cases. Sit back and enjoy the journey into the future of application delivery as we examine Winget.

You will learn:

  • What is WinGet
  • How WinGet advances application delivery
  • How to plan for WinGet adoption
