Package Managers for Windows

Installing software on Windows has always been the journey of Next -> Next -> Next.

That no longer has to be the journey you take though, there is now a healthy ecosystem of Package Managers that can help you.

Join me as I show you the world of Package Management within Windows using Chocolatey and the native Windows Package Manager tools.

I'll take you through both tools and show you how you can use them to install Windows Applications and also keep them up to date without Next -> Next -> Next.
