Session Update! VIX APIs – Managing and Automating Guest OS

Hello Folks,

Here is another session update for Technology Exchange Developer Day.

Session Abstract
The VIX APIs provide an easy-to-use, high-level
programming interface that combines virtual machine management operations with
actions in the guest operating system, such as running programs and copying
files to and from the guest. Users can leverage VIX to write scripts and
programs in C, Perl, C# or Visual Basic, and use a simple command-line tool for
writing shell scripts. This session will provide an overview of the VIX API,
along with detailed examples and demonstrations.
