One of the presentations I do a bit is about preparing for the VCAP certifications, I’ve done this at vForum Sydney and at the Sydney and Melbourne VMUGs and it always seems to be valuable to people. This week I’m doing the same material online for an international audience, which is interesting in itself. Below is a selection of links to VCAP5-DCD study resources that I used during the presentation.
