We are very excited to announce that Plugfest 32 has been scheduled! Below you will find details, useful resources, and a registration link.

What is Plugfest?
The goal of Plugfest is to help you prepare your file system minifilter, network filter, or boot encryption driver for the next version of Windows by performing interoperability testing with other products.

When is Plugfest 32?
Plugfest 32 will take place Monday, February 3rd and run through Friday, February 7th.

Where is Plugfest 32?
Microsoft Campus (Redmond, Washington) Building 83 (Rooms 1040,1050,1060)

Who are we looking for?
Independent Software Vendors (ISVs), developers writing file system minifilter drivers and/or network filter drivers for Windows.

How much does it cost?
FREE - There is no cost to attend this event. Attendees are responsible for their own travel and lodging.

Why should I go?
Here are three major benefits of Plugfest:

  • The opportunity to test products extensively for interoperability with other vendors' products and with Microsoft products. This has traditionally been a great way to understand interoperability scenarios and flush out any interoperability-related bugs.
  • Get exclusive talks and informative sessions organized by the File System Minifilter, Network Filter, and Boot Encryption Filter team about topics that affect the filter driver community.
  • Great opportunity to meet with the file systems team, the network team, the cluster team, and various other teams at Microsoft and get answers to your unanswered technical questions.
  • Early exposure to new hardware innovations, such as persistent memory, that affects filter functionality

How do I register?
