This page is dedicated to my study toward the VCAP6-DCV deployment exam. I want to illustrate each objective mainly for my own study and reference but hopefully it might help someone else out there studying. As I find other blogs / resources I will post as many as I can
Update 08/09/2016 – After initially failing the beta due to connection issues (see experience post below) I resat the GA exam and passed. Good luck with your exam, I will still get this guide finished.
Update 22/11/2016 – Guide is now complete and I have linked the VMware documentation that I used for reference.
