Soon VMworld US is on us and with it, a Hackathon is being organised. In September, the same will happen at VMworld EU.
For both VMworlds, teams have been created to be part of the Hackathons. The main goal is to have fun with same-minded people who want to learn, work and even expand or improve the Ansible VMware functionality.
(1) is a bit more complicated, as it will require python and pyvmomi knowledge, if the team is lacking that, that's fine :).
(2) is a bit easier and is more focused on the actual use of Ansible
Personally, i'm a big fan of (2) for this team. I can make sure to do another writeup tomorrow on how to setup your environment in preparation of this (pretty simple) and to give some initial introduction/training on the use of Ansible.
(1) is of course fine as well (got some module dev behind my belt, so i can provide guidance as well)
