Learning Powershell – Beginner Steps

I had a lot of trouble getting into PowerCLI. I knew some of the basic commands, but I never used it to do anything productive. The biggest site I managed had 150 VM’s, and I could do most tasks quickly through the vSphere client.

VCA Exams Worthless?

VMware released the VMware Certified Associate (VCA) exams at VMworld San Francisco 2013. These are entry level exams, below VCP, aimed at people just getting into virtualisation or not quite ready to sit the VCP exams.

Sit the IaaS exam for US$11

After reading the #vBrownBag IaaS study guide from @coolsport00, and exams being 75% off at VMworld, I decided to book the IaaS exam. The exam is usually US$225. I booked it using the VMworld SF 75% discount code, and thought I’d be cheeky and try and apply the VMUG Advantage 20% discount as well.
