vCenter Orchestrator videos!!!

The Orchestrator Technical Publications team is happy to announce that the first training videos for vCO are now available on the VMwareTV Youtube channel.

These first video series are intended for novice vCO workflow developers that already have basic knowledge about what a workflow is and what its components are. The goal of the video series is to show you how to develop your own workflow step-by-step from scratch. The example in the video is of a workflow which powers on a virtual machine and sends an e-mail with the result to a specified address.

In the first video of the series you will learn the purpose of the simple workflow, how to create it, define its input parameters and lay out the schema. In the second video you will see how to bind the workflow elements to input parameters and attributes. The third video will show you how to add more detailed logic in the scriptable task elements, create the presentation, validate the workflow, and of course run it!

Follow the links below to the how to “Develop your first vCenter Orchestrator workflow” training videos:
