Tech Talk: Reflections on the vSphere Management API – Ease of Use and Consistency

This is the wrapping tech talk at our last community meetup by Jeff Hu who is the tech lead on vSphere APIs. Based on his 7 years of experience since the inception of vSphere API, Jeff shared his insights on the design of vSphere API, and what can be done for better ease of use and consistency. In my opinion, this is a must read for anyone who is interested in VMware management APIs.

Disclaimer: The presentation contains forwardlooking, exploratory ideas and should not be interpreted as a statement of official product direction by VMware.
