once in a while, my job brings an opportunity to write some sort of documentation.
this week i gave an internal presentation on a vmware product named lab manager. getting a bit tired of the vmware slides, which all use the same small set of icons, i decided to do my own. using a blue pen and copier paper, i drew out all the diagrams for my hand-out. i then used a scan-to-tiff-and-email machine we have at work. then a few actions in microsoft word brought it all together. it looks so official, with the corportate document template and logo. and my document ended up being pretty content-rich. anyways.. i gave the presentation today and gave everybody a copy of the hand-out.
this one illustrates the derivation of multiple virtual machines as they are deployed, checked in and out of the library, etc.
i’m becoming quite an authority on vmware.
