Brownbag Follow-Up: VCP5 Section 6 with @Josh_Atwell

In spite of the friendly teasing on the call and on Twitter, Josh did a fantastic job at presenting Section 6 of the VMware VCP 5 Blueprint! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks, Josh & everyone who attended live, I found it to be very informative and fun. As always, you can find the Brownbag recording on, iTunes, and through the standard podcast RSS feed.

One last note: if you haven’t had a chance to listen to the APAC Brownbag, you should! They’re working on VCAP-DCD for vSphere 5; I think you’ll find it to be very informative and useful as well.
