VMware vSphere Pro Series Training: View, ThinApp, Nexus 1000V, and PowerCLI!

I was going to just tweet this news, but I thought it is too exciting for 140 characters to handle!

I’m a big believer in everything visual as you know, and I think that this kind of video based training is the way to go for anyone learning about something new for the first time. The next step, of course, would be reading full-blown books and product manuals, but again: it is way too easy to start your knowledge journey with this kind of CBTs to get you up to speed with the main concepts and most importantly to see the whole thing in front of you without worrying about setting the labs and related prerequisites.

With that said, I was really excited to know about this new releases coming soon from Trainsignal, and even more excited when I knew about the great instructors of the series: David Davis, Hal Rottenberg and Rick Scherer!

Without further ramblings, here are the main highlights of the videos included, and you can read the full details on the official site here:
