VMware invites you to participate in a special VCDX Panel Defense boot camp to be offered in the VMware offices of Frimley, UK on May 8th and Frankfurt, Germany on May 18th. These boot camps are designed to prepare VCDX candidates for the in-person defenses.
This is the first offering of VCDX Panel Defense Boot Camps in EMEA. John Arrasjid (VCDX-001) and a team of VCDX panelists will provide two 3-hour boot camps to prepare those in the final stages of the VCDX program. We will be offering this as a free boot camp for qualified participants.
Attendance will be approved on first come, first served basis until room capacity is reached. Others will be placed on a waiting list should cancellations open up space. There are currently more seats available for the Frankfurt location. We request that you submit your request for attendance with the name of the VCDX candidate, their qualifications, the manager name, and contact information for both the candidate and manager. We will use this to provide additional information on this session. Please include your first choice and your alternative choice if the schedule permits. If the first choice is full we will offer the second one after confirming your availability.
Qualifications for attendance includes completion of VCP, VCAP-DCA, and VCAP-DCD certifications. Exceptions may be made but these qualifications will give precedence to attendees. At a minimum, candidates must have VCP completed.
Please contact John Arrasjid at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in participating and can provide the candidate and related qualifications above
This session will only focus on the Panel Defense and the material related to the design blueprints, design submission, and the two scenarios. At the end we will provide a Q&A session. We are NOT allowed to review individual designs or respond to requests on the inner workings or scoring details, but can provide feedback on other questions that are of benefit to all attendees.
Please submit your request to attend by April 30th. Only individuals on the approved list will be admitted. Acceptance to the boot camps will be taken in the order received until we reach capacity. If we exceed capacity we will place names on an alternate list in case of cancellations.
We look forward to your participation and plan to provide the guidance that will help your candidates in their success.
This workshop will help you prepare for your VCDX defense by giving you an overview of how the defense process works and strategies for successfully defending your design.
If you are planning on attepting the VCDX credential - this workshop will help you!
If this is for free to qualified candidates, why can't VMware just make a professional CBT or Youtube of the bootcamp with extensive coverage in the blueprints and all candidates or future candidates should benefit inclusively, safe lots of traveling costs as well as VMware staff/resources.
John Arrasjid (VCDX001) has suggested that we do this, and we will produce asynchronous VCDX preparation training to suppoprt VCD.next. However, the dynamic of the mock defense, which is the centerpiece of the live workshops, is difficult to replicate in an eLearning session.
Ultimately, I believe the key will be to offer more bootcamps in concert with quality asynchronous training as as we grow the VCDX program.
