Overview:
This intensive four-day, instructor-led course in VMware vFabric™ GemFire® provides in-depth training in how to install, configure, and monitor GemFire applications.
The course begins with GemFire installation and general configuration. It continues with using the GemFire APIs to develop Java applications. The course also delves into more advanced deployment strategies and advanced configuration. Modules are accompanied by lab exercises that provide hands-on experience.
