VMware Fling Developer Spotlight Interview – Chris Halstead

Chris Halstead is one of our most prolific Fling developers, with six released Flings, and two in the works! Chris is an End User Architect, and has been with VMware for a little over three years. During this time, he developed the following Flings:

  • App Volumes Toolbox – This utility connects to App Volumes 2.x, 3.x and Horizon Air Hybrid-Mode (Enzo) environments, pulling data from the native REST APIs into a single interface for ease of management.
  • VMware Access Point Deployment Utility – This utility is a wrapper for the VMware OVF Tool for deploying the VMware Access Point Appliance. It allows you to input settings in a GUI; the utility will create and execute the properly formatted OVF Tool input string for you. It also allows settings to be saved to an XML file and later imported to reduce how much data needs to be manually entered.
  • Horizon View Events Database Export Utility – This utility allows administrators to easily apply very detailed filtering to the data and export it to a .CSV file. You can filter on time range, event severity, event source, session type (application or desktop), usernames and event types.
  • App Volumes Backup Utility – This Fling allows VMware App Volumes AppStacks and Writable Volumes to be backed up and recovered.
  • View Auto-Connection Utility – The View Auto-Connection Utility allows you to connect the VMware View Client automatically into a View desktop or an application pool when the system starts up.
  • Horizon View Event Notifier – This tool connects to one or more existing Horizon View Event Database(s) and allows the user to customize which types of alerts to be notified on. It can be run from any Windows based system and it collects and sends the alerts via email (SMTP) to users that are specified during the configuration process.

It’s wonderful working with Chris on his Fling tools, and I was eager to get his perspective to share with you!
