New Training available: VMware vCenter Orchestrator: Develop Workflows

UPDATE: To see the the currently scheduled classes, visit

VMware offers a brand-new training for Orchestrator users: VMware vCenter Orchestrator: Develop Workflows

The course is designed for people new to vCO, it starts with Install & Config, important Orchestrator Basics and the Workflow Development Methodology. After that the “real Orchestration-Power” is touched (at least a part of it, limited to the 3-day timeframe 🙂 ) by starting to integrate vCO with external systems.

Besides the theoretical part there is a lot of lab time (50-70%), with realistic tasks & workflows taken from real admin-life. The packaging chapter at the end allows you to export your work from the labs and take it home.

The training focuses on re-using existing building-blocks in vCO, however some basic scripting is involved. So the knowledge of any programming or scripting language is quite useful for the best training experience.

Also included is a chapter about the vSphere API its inventory structure, the data model and some useful tools. This may be interesting for any other vSphere automation (like PowerCLI) as well!

If you are want to book the training, ask your VMware Education Rep., your VMware Authorized Training Center (VATC) or me (I’ll bring you in contact with the proper people 😎 )
