By | 2017-09-15T21:38:22+00:00 September 15th, 2017|VMware, VMworld|1 Comment

I started Day 2 by posting coverage of Day 1 of VMworld and all things of note since after landing in Barcelona. Then there was the run to the venue. Coincidentally, I got the same seat in the keynote as on Day 1 and next to Barry Coombs and Megan Warren. https://twitter.com/AtherBeg/status/907860626831179778 The keynote was [...]

By | 2017-09-13T06:42:11+00:00 September 13th, 2017|VMware, VMworld|0 Comments

It's VMworld time again in Barcelona and I am here to meet all my like-minded colleagues. For many people, VMworld in Barcelona starts a little earlier; on Sunday with the vRockStar Party. This party is organised by Patrick Redknap and Marco Broeken (with other volunteers) and has now become a tradition and its popularity is [...]

VMworld Europe 2016 – Thursday (Last)

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
