Last month, I got an opportunity to share my expertise around vSphere automation as part of VMUG bangalore. I was pumped up to present it since it was my first ever VMUG session. Exciting news is all sessions are recorded and I thought it would be great to share it with you. If you want to get started with vSphere automation or take your understanding to the next level, I am sure you will find this session very useful. I personally felt how cool it would have been if I would have come across such informative but crisp session (just 41 min) when I started my vSphere automation journey.
