At Xtreme, we are always looking for fun, new ways to interact with our peers. The 2015 MCT Summit was a perfect opportunity for our XtremeLabs team to connect with the Microsoft Certified Trainer community. As a partnering sponsor of the event, we were able to experience the conference first-hand and discuss our Virtual Lab Hosting Platform with attendees. Over the three-day conference, MCTs gathered at the Sheraton in Bellevue to learn more about the MCT program, resources, training best practices, recommended classroom technology, courseware, class evaluations, and (our specialty) hosted labs.

XtremeLabs provides a virtualized training environment that allows trainees (such as MCTs) to experience and experiment with real life IT scenarios, such as migrations and deployments within a safe, sandboxed environment. Martin Dey, Director of IT Architecture at Xtreme, summarizes the platform's pedigree in these 9 easy notes:
