It’s that time of year again and as of today (July 21st) the VMworld Schedule Builder has gone live. So what are you signing up for? Before you answer that question, take a look at what PowerCLI activities are going on while you are there. Check back again before VMworld as we may end up adding other events to this page.
Note: There have been a few updates to the schedule, denoted in red and listed below:
INF5211 – Automating Everything VMware with PowerCLI – Deep Dive: PowerCLI is the number 1 automation product from VMware, in previous years you have seen how to get the most out of your infrastructure using PowerCLI. This year we will take it further than ever including new product automation never seen before, automating your public cloud instances and showing migration and reporting for your cloud workloads. This session will demonstrate how to bring DevOps working practices into your vSphere automation with PowerCLI and Desired State Configuration (DSC).

Wednesday, Sept 2, 12:30-1:30 PM – Brian Graf
INF4793 – Day to Day Automation of VMware Products to Increase Productivity and Efficiency: Many of us have become very comfortable in performing tasks manually in the desktop client or the vSphere Web Client, but doing things manually will always take more time and be more prone to errors, as opposed to automating them. Come learn how easy our automation solution is and how you can start automating actions, reports, and processes in your virtual environment today! We will discuss how to perform bulk actions against objects in the environment, create fast and valuable reports, and how to move away from all the manual and redundant tasks. If you do something more than once, you should automate it. If you are a PowerCLI beginner or haven’t even tried PowerCLI, this session is for you. Stop wasting your time and learn how to reclaim your day, the PowerCLI way.
