VMworld Europe 2016 – Thursday (Last)

By | 2016-12-11T15:24:59+00:00 October 21st, 2016|Virtualization, VMworld|0 Comments

Thursdays are different to the other days. There's no General Session so VMvillage opens earlier. I checked out from my place early and got to the venue. It pays to be early on Thursday as almost everyone has luggage to store in the morning. The staff is great as they are extremely quick in taking it [...]

VMworld Europe 2016 – Wednesday

By | 2016-12-11T15:24:59+00:00 October 20th, 2016|Virtualization, VMworld|0 Comments

I am writing this post in a hurry as last night, I sat on the bed to check Twitter and next thing I knew, it was 06:30 in the morning! VMworld is great but it does take a toll on you as the week goes by. Wednesday was a little more organised than the day before [...]

So, it was the last day. It had been quite a hectic week so far (as always) but activities were still going strong. First order of the day was for me to get to the venue, leave my suitcase with the bag drop and get the update post for day 2 published that I wasn't able to [...]

VMworld Europe 2015 – Day 2

On Day 2, I got to the venue early and published my update for Day 1 of VMworld Europe 2015. Once that was done, it was time for some breakfast and lots of coffee. It is customary to start Day 2 with a General Session and this time, it was EUC (End User Computing) and NSX's [...]

VMworld Europe 2015 – Day 1

By | 2016-12-11T15:25:00+00:00 October 14th, 2015|VMware, VMworld|3 Comments

Yesterday was Day 1 of the main event. I got to the venue, bright and early, and helped myself to a great selection of bakery items. Also, didn't forget to fill me up with lots of caffeine, which I so desperately needed. I've only attended VMworld in Barcelona so not sure if the US version is [...]

VMworld Europe 2015 – It’s All Kicking Off!

Yes, after the confusion last year on what number are the days, I've decided to go for a neutral name. Avoids all the naming issues (unlike the products we work with every day!) Got to Barcelona at about noon on Sunday and checked in. Had to sacrifice the start of Russian GP (Formula 1) but hey, [...]

My Session Schedule at VMworld Europe 2015

Like many of you, I am also looking forward to attending VMworld this year. I have a feeling that this year, VMware has left a bit more for Barcelona than last year and I hope my hunch is right. Just thought I should do a quick post, listing the sessions I have booked for myself, [...]
