CloudCred is the gamification way from VMware to learn more about cloud computing and related topics. Maybe could be not the best way, or sometimes it goes wild… but remain an interesting approach.

As a good example of a right way to use this approach are the learning path. For example, one of the recently introduces is the “Show Your IBM SmartCloud Cred” path.

This path is composed by several tasks:

  1. Task 422: Watch “Build your private cloud with IBM SmartCloud Foundation
  2. Task 423: Demo the IBM SmartCloud Enterprise System
  3. Task 424: Follow @ITDoVe on Twitter
  4. Task 425: Read “The power of cloud
  5. Task 426: Follow @IBMCloud on Twitter
  6. Task 427: Like the Smart Cloud Facebook Page
  7. Task 428: Install “IBM Cloud for Midsize Businesses” app for your iPad
  8. Task 429: Install “IBM IBV” app on your iPad
  9. Task 430: Read “Success in the cloud: Why workload matters
  10. Task 431: Install the IBM SmartCloud Provisioning Trial
  11. Task 432: Request a quote from IBM for your business using SmartCloud
  12. Task 434: Review posts on “Thoughts on Cloud
  13. Task 435: Watch “IBM SmartCloud Services
  14. Task 436: Read “Choice and control
  15. Task 437: Listen to an IBM tech talk series for cloud computing

All those tasks give a good overview on the IBM cloud vision and related solutions, but it’s also a valid source of information vendor independent.
