VIX API session at VMworld Developer Days 2010

The program
for VMworld
Developer Days
just got posted, and I’m very excited to be giving a
talk about the VIX API and Guest Operations. 
n addition to a technical deep dive on the VIX API
implementation of guest operations and best practice for using them, we’re
going to give forward-looking details about future directions of the APIs.  Here’s the session abstract:



Guest Operations using VMware VIX APIs and Beyond

Level: Advanced

Have you ever needed to
customize a VM – or 1000 VMs?  Deploy or update software in a Guest
Operating System?  Monitor processes in a VM?  Copy files to or from
a VM?  Guest Operations provide a programming interface for automating or
scripting interactions with the Guest Operating system of a running Virtual
Machine.  This presentation gives an in-depth view on how to use these
operations, covering both the VMware VIX API (www.vmware.com/go/vix) and also
the future API roadmap for extending availability of these operations as part
of the VSphere Web Services APIs.

Speaker: Matt LaMantia


Like last
year, the Technology Exchange is going to be part of VMworld, at the Moscone
Center in SF, August 30 through September 1. 
This year, Developer Days is going to be a 3-day event, which is all
about VMware expanding the content that’s by engineers and for engineers.  I’m also told that there will be chances to
get free software and other goodies, including an iPad give-away.
