Learn how to

*
Use WDF to reduce development time, improve system stability, and enhance serviceability
*
Take full advantage of both the User Mode Driver Framework (UMDF) and the Kernel Mode Driver Framework (KMDF)
*
Implement best practices for designing, developing, and debugging both User Mode and Kernel Mode Drivers
*
Manage I/O requests and queues, self-managed I/O, synchronization, locks, plug-and-play, power management, device enumeration, and more
*
Develop UMDF drivers with COM
*
Secure Kernel Mode Drivers with safe defaults, parameter validation, counted UNICODE strings, and safe device naming techniques
*

OSR claims they wrote the original. Mark worked for them at some point, if I remember the words of one OSR employee correctly (took a seminar from them some years ago).

Great write up, though!

I don't know if this is the appropriate topics, but this link is very useful for explanation of some crucial windows structures. http://www.codemachine.com/article_kernelstruct.html

Although it doesn't go into detail it certainly can serve as a good reference.
