OK! Finally the end of this series! Honestly without the existence of the following resources there is no chance in hell that I would have been able to even develop a simple workflow, let along start scripting and what not. I was a couple weeks into vCO before I even learned that you can switch to ‘design’ mode 😉
So, if you are looking for some awesomeness on vCO, have a look at the following…
Official vCenter Orchestrator Documentation – Should really be your first go to reference for all that is vCO
Automating vSphere with VMware vCenter Orchestrator – Although official docs SHOULD be your first go to item – I find that this book written by Cody Bunch actually IS my first go to reference.
www.vcoteam.info – Great blog with a ton of script examples and whatnot! Bookmark this…
www.vcoportal.de – Ditto to the above line, might better bookmark this on while you in your bookmarks…This is a fabulous blog!
VMware vCenter Orchestrator blog – the official blog from VMware centered around vCO.
VMware API and SDK documentation – this always helps when trying to determine what type of objects or properties any given function requires.
Good Ol’ Twitter – Follow @cody_bunch, @josh_atwell, @vCOteam, @technicalvalues – there are a ton more but these are the ones that I can think of off the top of my head – just search for #vCO and find someone to ask your question to – community seems to be always willing to help.
Thanks for reading and hopefully you can find some usefulness out of vCO as I did! I encourage everyone to explore what it has to offer, which the same results, everytime! Check out the full series below…
