Just last week, another build of the Windows 10 Technical Preview -- Build 10041 -- popped onto the landscape. I've been working with it desultorily at times, and with intense focus at others, but always, always I've been struggling to find good sources of information. I'd like to share some of the results of my searching in this blog post, to help other "early adopters" like myself get ready for a new slate of MS certs sure to show up in late summer or early fall when Windows 10 hits the "General Availability" milestone.

One very interesting item that came up in the conversation is S.2234 the LEAP Act (Leveraging and Energizing America's Apprenticeship Programs), wherein I learned that South Carolina (Tim Scott's home state) currently leads the nation in creating and supporting such programs.
This past week I've been OOO (out of the office), where I served as an expert witness in a patent suit.

As I dug into the PITC site and started checking things out, I found myself pleasantly surprised. The short answer to the question is "Plenty!" but you'll have to read on to get details and pointers.
