How to learn VMWare Horizon View Basics

In my free time I do really like to work with young people who is making an IT formation.

From this year on, I decided to support a little bit the education of the IT trainees. For this I signed up as an validation expert for the interdisciplinary project work of them.

After having an introductory course, I selected my first candidate.

He had to write a Script  who installs a complete vSphere and Horizon View environment.

As I’m not an expert in Horizon View i thought that I had to extend my skills on this theme. For this i looked in the internet for some online courses and found the page CBT Nuggets.

I registered me for a 7day trial and looked all the videos: http://www.cbtnuggets.com/it-training/vmware-horizon-6-view

I can really recommend this video for those who are not familiar and would like to learn the basics of it. With the video i had enough knowledge from Horizon View to examine the trainee.

Also other videos seem to be quite cool and I’m already ¬†thinking about to make a premium plan.
