Non Tech-related Post: I had an article published

Filed under: Uncategorized — Justin Emerson @ 11:25 am

Today I had an article published in Escapist Magazine, it’s about an older computer game called Allegiance that was made by Microsoft more than 10 years ago. If that sort of thing interests you, you can check it out here.

I hope everyone has a great holiday, expect more content in the new year!

Passed the VCAP-DCA exam!

Filed under: vmware, vSphere — Justin Emerson @ 1:18 pm

If you follow my twitter, you’ll have noticed that I finally received word that I passed the VCAP-DCA exam! I took the test back on Nov 4th, and had to wait almost a month for my results. But all is forgiven!

Some experiences from my exam:

  • Manage your time well. I actually spent too much time hunting through the provided documentation to answer a couple questions and ended up running out of time. If I had just given up on one particular question and moved on, I might have gotten 2 more right at the end that I couldn’t get to.
  • The blueprint is very important! Make sure you know everything in it.
  • When they say you need to know all the command lines, they’re not kidding.
  • Know your Distributed Virtual Switch stuff well.

Also, I can’t recommend the guides over at vFail enough – they are excellent. Make sure you go there and study before the exam.
Good luck everyone!
