I’m proud to present the third edition of the vSphere design Pocketbook series . The vSphere Design Pocketbook series act as a platform for community members with or without a personal blog to be printed in a book.
With the first copy of the book we asked the community to provide their proven and tested insights via short Tweet sized recommendations. The authors distilled their advice to a few words, providing succinct guidance on how to solve common problems.
Although the tweet-sized design Pocketbook was a big hit, some readers wanted to have more background, including a richer description of both the problem and suggested solution. Therefore, we came out with version two of the PocketBook, where we provided blog-sized recommendations. By taking away the character limits, we enabled people to submit longer articles, hints and tips.
This edition, the social media edition , is the best of both worlds. It contains informative blog articles with in-depth design descriptions, as well as short tweet-sized snippets of advice. With over 10,000 copies of the previous versions distributed, it has big shoes to fill. But we know it is up to the task, and I hope you enjoy it.
As always, the community delivered an overwhelming number of submissions with amazing and insightful content. I want to thank everyone who submitted, but, in order to create a manageable sized pocketbook, we could not include everything.
When you visit VMworld, VMUGs, or any other event where you bump into community members who have provided you with valuable content, I encourage you to talk to them and tell them you like their work. A little appreciation goes a long way – and it’s the fuel that keeps these amazing people going.
