Are you ready to move ahead in your career? Whether you have your eye on that lucrative promotion or are putting together a kick-butt resume to start handing out to potential employers, there are some must-have skills you need to be working on to become a VMware developer. Here are the things you need to be adding to your skill set to stay ahead in the development world.

Boost Your VMware Developer Knowledge & Education

Extra learning isn’t just a way to pad the old resume. It’s a great way to perform better on the job so that you’re the obvious choice for promotions, raises, and other honors.

There are several VMware learning opportunities at all levels: Fundamental (the basics for beginners), Professional, and Advanced. At the Fundamental level, the course vCloud Automation Center Fundamentals is an ideal way to get your feet wet in cloud automation. Next up are two Professional level courses: Realize Automation: Install, Configure, Manage, and vCloud Automation Center: Install Configure, Manage on Demand. The Advanced level course to consider once you’ve mastered the lower and intermediate levels is Cloud Automation: Design and Deploy Fast Track.

Learn About the AWS Hybrid Cloud or Architecture

While AWS is a competitor of VMware, AWS is likely a huge part of the future of the hybrid cloud. Failing to have AWS hybrid cloud skills could set you back in the job hunting arena. About half of all enterprises will deploy a hybrid cloud before 2017 comes to a close, and a fair number of these will be hybrid cloud including AWS components. Learning about AWS usage within hybrid cloud environment is just one way to bolster your skills and assure that your usefulness will extend well into the next decade.

Get Informed on DevOps

You can like the idea of DevOps or hate the idea, but it really doesn’t matter. It’s coming. In many arenas, it’s already here. The good news is, it’s actually a really good concept. If you’re new to the idea or haven’t worked in an environment that embraces DevOps yet, you need to study up on the methodology and get acquainted with the tools you’ll need to use. This means getting knowledgeable about Atlas, Chef, Docker, Puppet, SaltStack, etc.

Learn New Languages

Learning the latest languages like Python and Ruby can score you better jobs and promotions, as well as give you better tools for your own interesting projects.

Java and C# shouldn’t be the only languages in your repertoire. Today’s developers need to delve into the latest languages like Python, Ruby, and even Go, Rust, and Swift. These languages form the basis for many of today’s most innovative and industry-changing development projects. Python and Ruby allow you to do the things you’re already doing in Java and C++, only with many fewer lines of code. Both are well-designed languages that are becoming quite mainstream.

It’s not necessary to go to school full time to keep up with your VMware developer skills. A few extra hours of your time in the evenings and on weekends can make all the difference in your resume, your career, and your future. Looking to keep up with all things VMware?

Use Case - Tamper-resistant Clinical Trials

Goal:

Blockchain PoCs were unsuccessful due to complexity and lack of developers.

Still the goal of data immutability as well as client verification is a crucial. Furthermore, the system needs to be easy to use and operate (allowing backup, maintenance windows aso.).

Implementation:

immudb is running in different datacenters across the globe. All clinical trial information is stored in immudb either as transactions or the pdf documents as a whole.

Having that single source of truth with versioned, timestamped, and cryptographically verifiable records, enables a whole new way of transparency and trust.

Use Case - Finance

Goal:

Store the source data, the decision and the rule base for financial support from governments timestamped, verifiable.

A very important functionality is the ability to compare the historic decision (based on the past rulebase) with the rulebase at a different date. Fully cryptographic verifiable Time Travel queries are required to be able to achieve that comparison.

Implementation:

While the source data, rulebase and the documented decision are stored in verifiable Blobs in immudb, the transaction is stored using the relational layer of immudb.

That allows the use of immudb’s time travel capabilities to retrieve verified historic data and recalculate with the most recent rulebase.

Use Case - eCommerce and NFT marketplace

Goal:

No matter if it’s an eCommerce platform or NFT marketplace, the goals are similar:

  • High amount of transactions (potentially millions a second)
  • Ability to read and write multiple records within one transaction
  • prevent overwrite or updates on transactions
  • comply with regulations (PCI, GDPR, …)


Implementation:

immudb is typically scaled out using Hyperscaler (i. e. AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure) distributed across the Globe. Auditors are also distributed to track the verification proof over time. Additionally, the shop or marketplace applications store immudb cryptographic state information. That high level of integrity and tamper-evidence while maintaining a very high transaction speed is key for companies to chose immudb.

Use Case - IoT Sensor Data

Goal:

IoT sensor data received by devices collecting environment data needs to be stored locally in a cryptographically verifiable manner until the data is transferred to a central datacenter. The data integrity needs to be verifiable at any given point in time and while in transit.

Implementation:

immudb runs embedded on the IoT device itself and is consistently audited by external probes. The data transfer to audit is minimal and works even with minimum bandwidth and unreliable connections.

Whenever the IoT devices are connected to a high bandwidth, the data transfer happens to a data center (large immudb deployment) and the source and destination date integrity is fully verified.

Use Case - DevOps Evidence

Goal:

CI/CD and application build logs need to be stored auditable and tamper-evident.
A very high Performance is required as the system should not slow down any build process.
Scalability is key as billions of artifacts are expected within the next years.
Next to a possibility of integrity validation, data needs to be retrievable by pipeline job id or digital asset checksum.

Implementation:

As part of the CI/CD audit functionality, data is stored within immudb using the Key/Value functionality. Key is either the CI/CD job id (i. e. Jenkins or GitLab) or the checksum of the resulting build or container image.
