It's been a month plus since I last wrote something for this blog and I know I'm slacking but I'll just blame the holiday season as my reason to slow down. I hope everyone is getting to spend time with friends, family, loved ones, and just slow down a bit. At work, sadly that's oh so not the case. We have a ton of great stuff going in the automation world and one of those (a major one) would be the release of CPO 3.0! I was very excited to see this version come out and introduce a lot of fixes and a lot of great additions to the product. The developers, QA, management, etc has worked tireless hours to get this version out and we can thank them for that.
So as an introduction to CPO 3.0 I decided to do a video blog on some of the new things in CPO 3.0 with a heavy highlight on Target Types which has given CPO development a little more of an object oriented feel and has put the target, more than the process, at the center of your development. Let me tell you... it is outstanding. As someone who works in CPO on a daily basis it has made my content authoring life much easier. It did take me a few to get used to it, even though I have many years writing object oriented code in other languages, it does take a little bit to get used to. So hopefully the below video can give you some guidance on how they work and a fun implementation of them! I did a fun/make believe implementation using target types to help those of all skill levels understand the concepts and how they work. Hopefully you can think like I do and see it the way I see it If not, no worries, feel free to post questions below or drop me a line or open a TAC case. I do mention another video blog and I plan to release that next week as I'll be taking a nice 3 week vacation at the end of the year and I wanted to get that other blog out there so y'all have plenty of material to review and watch. Hopefully you have a little down time later in the year and can enjoy this content. This is by no means the only way to think about it or an "official" training segment, but it is how I view things and how I believe others can view it as well. Again, if anything is not clear, please let me know! Please be aware that the whole video is 1 hour, 20 minutes so take a long lunch Your boss should be fine with it, you are training and becoming a better content author!
No questions this month! Hopefully we'll get some in to answer for next time!
Every month I will pick a handful of questions from you, the reading CPO public, to answer in this part of the blog. Please post comments/questions below. I will no longer be using the external e-mail from previous blogs.
Please also let me know if you like the format of this blog and what else you would like to see/know about. Feel free to give any ideas as to future blog posts, etc and I will be happy to post them. I hope to do more how-tos, best practices, tips, tricks, and hopefully some interviews of the important people behind the scenes of CPO.

Hey guys, Do you know if any of the 3000 nexus series support FEX? Specifically 3524-X and B22HP. I’ve trawled through the config guides and can see FEX commands for the 3600 but not for the 3524-X. I know the 7000 series do and some of the 9000...
