at the risk of getting flamed, i'll ask a question that's been asked some years before, in case there's anythying new..
Are there any textbooks for learning the F5 material - particularly BigIP and AFM (other than An Introduction to LTM iRules which i will purchase)?
I will also start on the intro webcasts and play with the VM. I won't be able to convince my workplace to spend big dollars on the live courses.
Some people's learning styles suit the "just play with it" methodology, i work better with an organized structure.. Other vendors (microsoft, cisco) have you know, full, thorough textbooks... does anything like this exist for F5 products? I assume the live courses have written material that accompanies the course... any chance this can be sold?
