Demitasse is Alastair Cooke, the company was formed in July 2006 as I returned to self employed contracting, it is a one man company where I am the owner and the product. My main work is delivering VMware authorized training courses especially the advanced courses. In addition I am available for consulting work around VMware’s products.
In the last couple of years I have become involved in the community around VMware’s products and organize ways for the community to meet, either through the APAC Virtualisation podcast or local meetups like vBeers. In recognition of this I was honored by VMware with vExpert status for 2011, which has resulted in even more effort on helping the virtualization community in my region to get together.
My largest contribution to the Virtualization community is the AutoLab. This is a kit of VMs and automation that you can use for free to build a vSphere test and training lab using a single modern PC, whether it’s a laptop, desktop, server or even MAC. You can find out more about the AutoLab on this page. I am writing eBooks about using the AutoLab to help you study for certification, just search for AutoLab in your favorite eBook marketplace.
In addition I write about various topics for TechTarget, there is a list of my articles on this page, and blog at professionalvmware.com which is also the home of the vBrownBag podcast. I run the APAC Edition of the vBrownBag podcast every second Thursday. We usually cover design topics, you can find details of what we are covering now and have covered in the past on this page.
