DemoMates Of Visual Studio 11 ALM Virtual Machine Demos

Back on September 16, Microsoft made available the Visual Studio 11 ALM Virtual Machine and the accompanying hands-on-labs / demo scripts.

For users, who might not have the requisite hardware and Windows Server hosting environment running a Hyper-V virtual machine, Brian Keller just published a set of DemoMates for each of the 6 ALM hands-on-labs / demo scripts.

For those not aware, “DemoMate is a Silverlight-based rendering of a software demo which can be used to easily learn a demo or show it to an audience (albeit in a strict, linear format). In short, it provides an authoring environment for creating and publishing interactive content with animation, video, and sound. It’s not a substitute for the virtual machine and being able to go “off road” of the script, but if you plan on sticking to the script then it’s the next best thing.”

“While you’re using the DemoMates, you can use the options in the lower-right corner to go full screen, switch between auto-play and manual advancing modes, turn presenter scripts on or off, and so on. As you hover your mouse over these items they should become self-explanatory.”


You can run these DemoMates online, or if you plan on using these in an environment where you might not always have Internet access then you may go with the offline version:
