VMworld Barcelona 15.-17.10.2013

VMworlds European event was held in Barcelona. It had attendance of 8300 (http://www.vmworld.com/index.jspa), Joona Tolonen and Timo Partanen from Kajaani UAS. Once again new products and technologies were published in the event, here is heading level summary from lectures: http://www.vmworld.com/community/sessions/2013.

Hands-on-Labs

Hands-on-Labs

In the event VMware introduced their new certificate program, which makes possible to perform Accociate level tests (http://mylearn.vmware.com/mgrReg/plan.cfm?plan=32567&ui=www_cert). These mentioned test are for free for our students. It’s because we are a member of VMware Academy – more info from program will be told in our institution.

In VMworld partisipants get to see different technologies with Hands-on-Labs (http://www.vmworld.com/blogs/vmworld/2013/08/23/vmworld-2013-hands-on-labs). These kinds of lab works are available from various fields and they usually take up to 90 minutes. These labs usually have long queues, but this year there were pretty much none.

Kesäprojektien yhteenveto

Summer in DClab went quickly. The first priority that was the  business customers’ projects were finished successfully. Even though DClabs infrastructure was under many updates and remodelling, the summer students fared well. Many students showed surprising amounts of expertice, which guaranteed success of the projects.

Most of the projects were web services. Other big projects were i.a. rendering tests for graphics and LAN-party organizating. LAN-party at Autumn, organized by DC students, Kamk Game Fest, offered chance for students to hone their social and productional skills. It was delight to hear that students got i.a. Gigantti to sponsor the event.

During summer it became clear that writing code is essential skill, it has lots of demand. I learnd the importance of being organized and being able to schedule clearly. I also learned social skills which were needen when communicating with business customers.

I belive that every participant got something new besides course credits. This summer study method was very successfull in my point of view and will continue in following summers.
