Script-0-mania Contest – 11 days left !


Just a friendly reminder. The Script-O-Mania contest ends March 15th, 2010. We shot a short clip that helps explain the contest goals and objectives. Look forward to seeing some fascinating scripts from our community.


First month at VMware. Like the energy level within the teams. Lots of work ahead – primarily on adding functionality that helps our developers, partners and integrators. Feel free to comment on what you think are some of the important things VMware should do to help you, the developer.
