Dear Vincent,

The transition to UEFI is happening fast.

Microsoft’s announcement that new computers shipping with Windows 8 pre-installed must be certified in UEFI mode has made the industry move fast to migrate all platforms to this firmware architecture. Today there are both ARM- and Intel Atom-based smartphones on the market that use UEFI, and in the x86 space products ranging from laptops to high-end servers now expose their UEFI interface.

If you have started porting your products, including development-, testing-, validation-, and integration-tools, as well as your custom pre-OS applications, to run on UEFI you are on your way to take advantage of this migration.

If you still are focused on legacy BIOS, or other boot firmware, it is time to start the migration, and it is getting urgent.

In either case Techstream® can help you get to UEFI faster and easier.

We have the experience: Over the last 15 years, we have delivered hundreds of Tiano, UEFI PI, UEFI architecture, and legacy BIOS courses all over the world, and to virtually all major players in the industry.

Our current firmware-related offerings are:

Tiano and UEFI Architecture. Most UEFI implementations on x86-64, ARM, and Itanium use the highly flexible, modular, and platform independent, architecture defined by the UEFI Forum’s PI (Platform Initialization) Specification, based on the early stages of Intel’s Tiano architecture.

This course takes you through all of the UEFI PI’s and Tiano’s phases and interfaces. For the full outline, please go to

I think that I'll pass.
