It is finally that time of year. The greatest time of year. It is time for VMworld!!! August 26-30 is the the time where everyone packs up and spends a week in Las Vegas with some of the greatest minds in Virtualization.
VMworld is a great opportunity to learn about some of the latest technology in the industry. The show floor will be backed with tons of vendors. Some you have heard of and some that you haven’t. You may find that vendor that has just the solution that you have been looking for. All the vendors will have lots of information about the various products and solutions that they offer. It is a great idea to talk to as many as you can. Always a great opportunity to learn something new, and they usually have some great prize and swag!
The sessions will be excellent as always presented by some of the smartest people you have ever met. You can take a look of all the sessions here. If you can’t make it to VMworld they will post most of the sessions on Youtube shortly after.
They will also be offering training sessions on the various VMware products, and if you ready for it you can take one of the certification tests. Maybe finally get that VCP or VCAP that you have been working on.
The best part of all of this is the networking, and the lifelong friends you will make. Through VMworld and various other social events I met many great people and friends. It is a great community to be a part of, and I hope this year I will be able to meet up with as many people I can at the various events.
