It’s difficult to find some really high quality technical training without “knowing a guy” who taught a course to a buddy. Many of the courses I’ve sat through in the past have been a real snore fest or highly outdated. However, I’ve been using TrainSignal courses for over 5 years now and am a huge fan – they have really great instructors who are top notch at communicating technical content in an easy-to-digest format. In fact, when I was first learning Windows Server 2008 and wanted my MCITP Enterprise Admin, I bought a set of videos for my entire IT team and we competed to see who could watch all the content first and go take the exams. It was a lot of fun and I learned a ton.
Now it’s my turn to sit behind the microphone and try to uphold a long history of quality content with my newly released “VMware vCloud Director 5.1 Essentials” course for TrainSignal. The course took me about three months to fully cook up and produce, and I’m really proud of how it turned out. And in honor of this being my first video training course I’m holding an awesome swag giveaway! The popular TrainSignal IT Survival Kit is filled with all sorts of essential items for avoiding the zombie apocalypse … or at least for looking cool as you truck around work or events in style. A huge thanks goes out to the folks at TrainSignal for kindly donating this kit to me so that I could pass it along to a lucky reader.
I’ve also written a blog post on the top 5 reasons I think you should learn vCloud Director
