VMworld 2012 VCDX Panel Defense Boot Camps

VMware invites you to participate in a special VMworld 2012 VCDX Panel Defense boot camp.

Sessions will be offered in San Francisco, CA, US (SFO) on August 26th 2012 and in Barcelona, ES (BCN) on October 7th 2012. John Arrasjid (VCDX-001) and a team of VCDX panelists will provide these 3-hour boot camps to help prepare those in the final stages of the VCDX program. The boot camps will be offered free of charge for qualified attendees.

Qualifications for attendance include 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.

These sessions will focus on the VCDX design blueprint, design submission, the VCDX Panel Defense, and the two defense scenarios. The boot camps will end with a Q&A session. Facilitators are NOT allowed to review individual designs or provide details on confidential program internals, but they can provide feedback on other questions that are of benefit to all VCDX aspirants.

Attendance will be approved on a first-come-first-served basis until room capacity is reached. Additional applicants will be placed on a waiting list. Please submit your request for attendance - along with your session choice (SFO or BCN), qualifications, and contact information to mbrunstad@vmware.com  

Please submit your request to attend either boot camp by July 13, 2012. Only individuals on the approved list will be admitted.

We look forward to your participation and plan to provide guidance that will help you achieve VCDX!

Mark,

Excuse me if this has been answered elsewhere, is there any anticipation for VCDX Boot Camps outside of VMworld?  I can understand if there isn't, I was just curious.

Thanks

We are planning to publish a more complete schedule of VCDX Boot Camps and Defenses in Q1 '13. This will inclued offerings not associated with VMworld and VMworld Europe.

I'm also working with John Arrasjid to train more VCDX-holders to deliver Boot Camps. This will allow us to offer them at more VMUG events and other gatherings going forward.

I talked with John Arrasjid at VMworld and we're planning to do this on the vBrownBag podcast in the near future!  Details will be coming ASAP.  We have some exciting VCDX related stuff we're working on for the podcast so stay tuned.

We certainly try not to!  I kicked off the planning today so hope to have some dates set soon.  Would be kicking off in the November/December timeframe most likely as October is Security Month on the podcast!
