    Hi All

    Mindful some of us might have more time on our hands working from home, saved travel time etc. So I thought it might be useful to list out the things that you can learn from VMware, all for free :)

    Below you can find details for:
    • Learning Zone
    • Kube Academy
    • Cloud Credibility
    • Hands on Labs
    • TAM LABS!
    • Feature Walk throughs
    • Blog Beat
    • VMworld
    VMware Learning Zone:

    The basic subscription is totally free to anyone and there are loads of on demand courses you can take and also live events you can sign up for.

    Learning zone home page:

    Live Events programme and registration links -

    Link to recordings of past Learning Zon Events:

    VMware Kube Academy

    Loads of free courses to help you learn Kubernetes and take you from beginner to certification!

    Kube Academy homepage:

    Cloud Credibility

    A fun, task based cloud tech challenge website where you can do challenges individually or in teams to earn points, badges and if you’re good, get swag and be invited to talk at events. Watch the short video on the home page for more information.

    VMware Hands on Labs

    IMHO The absolute best way to quickly get your hands on live environments (with a few simulations) with guided exercises or just have a poke around the interfaces and get familiar.

    Hand on Labs home page:

    Three new Modern Apps labs have just been released!

    · HOL-2013-01-ISM - vSphere 7 with Kubernetes - Lightning Lab

    · HOL-2030-01-CNA - Containers 101 with Photon OS, VMware's Container-Optimized OS

    · HOL-2032-01-CNA - VMware Tanzu Mission Control

    If like me you were disappointed when you tried to find a VMC on AWS lab, fear not, it is there, but listed as “VMware Cloud on AWS”! Here’s a direct link:

    VMware TAM LABS

    TAM LAB is to provide in-depth technology workshop sessions led by VMware Technical Account Managers (TAMs) to enable a culture of learning and partnership across the VMware organization and our customers. TAM Lab provides a platform for all to be hands-on with VMware and non-VMware technologies that will enable a stronger customer delivery through product knowledge and a greater technical resource network.
