This is the first in a series of articles that will walk through the process of getting set up and using the vSphere Management SDK. It is targeted at developers of software products that will manage, monitor, analyze, automate or otherwise interact with virtual resource controlled by VMware infrastructure. I’m not addressing device drivers or low level development, nor am I addressing scripts to automate specific IT operations.
