As an instructor of VMware products, one of the things I like to do, is ensure that I am aware of the things that VMware are working on.
One of the sites I check on a regular basis is the VMware Labs Flings.
"Flings are apps and tools built by our engineers and community that are intended to be played with and explored."
The above is straight off the Flings Website , I find some of the utilities extremely useful.
The other site I check on a regular basis is the VMware research website.
"We bring development to the VeRGe of research, and research to the VeRGe of production"
Again the description is lifted directly from the research site
I like this site to get an insight to the things that VMware are working on.
Just a little bit on a couple of VMware sites you may find useful.
