It is being exactly 4 months since I was able to achieve my VCDX-CMA cert and now I can finally say that I am a double VCDX with my newly mint VCDX-DCV cert – what a great feeling!
During the last weekend, I took the time to start with some home lab upgrades. I wanted to start checking all the new vSphere 6.5 goodies and some of the cool new Windows Server 2016 features, Docker integration being one of them. The new integrated Update Manager is finally here and but unfortunately, my first interaction with it was around VIB conflict.
It’s been almost a year since I’ve started working for Microsoft. You know, when I got my VCDX a few months back, few people from the vCommunity asked me how is that helping me with my day to day Azure life. If you will add to that the fact that no one (well, almost no one) at Microsoft knows what it’s all about, you will get some brain processing.
Slack is hot! I see it with customers, me and my wife teams are using it (she work as a java developer at eBay BTW), and I also starting to see it in traditional IT. I also love vROps so I thought to myself, hey, why not leverage Slack to display vROps alerts and make collaboration more efficient?!
Twitter is a powerful platform, we all know that. The biggest challenge I have with it is how to keep track the tweets I “Like”. Since I am also an Evernote kinda guy, I thought it might be a good idea to do some Twitter/Evernote automation magic using Zapier to help me out.
The day of the remote defense has arrived. After all the mocks, Quizlets and mental prep, it all boils down to two hours of the most important WebEx session I had in my career so far.
As some of you may already know, VMware has started to offer VCDX remote defense for “returning players”. Being able to pass it, few questions came at my direction regarding the process and the experience so I thought why not to share.
One of the changes made last year by the VCDX program team is the need to document your changes if you are resubmitting for another attempt.
