VMworld Europe 2011 – disponibili online le sessioni

Per chi ha partecipato, sono disponibili online le sessione del VMworld Europe 2011. Le potete trovare qui: “mescolate” a quelle del VMworld 2011 US.

Una delle cose piu’ interessanti a mio parere e’ la presenza di tutti i manuali degli Hands-On Labs: molti sono degli utili tutorial anche senza aver sottomano gli HoL.

VMworld Europe 2011 – Sessions available online

VMworld Europe 2011 session are now available online here: 

don’t be fooled by the title “VMworld 2011 sessions”, VMworld Europe sessions are mixed with the US ones.

One of the most interesting thing is the availability of all the Hands-On Labs manuals: even if you can’t access the HoL, many of them are really good tutorial on their own.
