It’s almost time for VMworld, VMware’s annual tech conference once again being held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. I have been privileged enough to attend the previous two years making this my 4th trip to VMworld (I also attended in 2008). As I did last year, I added VMworld content to my VMware page found here: http://vmnick.com/vmware. If you’re attending VMworld this year, a couple words for the wise. First, wear comfortable shoes. You’re going to be doing a lot of walking and the last thing you want is sore feet on the 2nd or 3rd day of the conference. Network, network and network some more. The VMware community is the best community in the world. For me, the community has helped me create new friends as well as create a new group of people to bounce ideas off. If you’re now wondering how to network, the first place to start is the numerous parties being held at VMworld. Again, bounce over to my VMware page and check out the gatherings link. As far as the sessions, remember that all sessions are recorded and available shortly after VMworld. Therefore rank the sessions as must attend, want to attend and okay if I don’t attend. Make sure to attend your must attend sessions, try to make your want to attend sessions and if you happen to attend some of your okay if I don’t attend, great. But don’t let the sessions get in the way of networking (did I mention that yet), walking the Solutions Exchange, checking out San Francisco and in general, enjoying all the conference has to offer.
It’s been a while since my last Scoop, therefore I have a great collection of articles that I cannot wait to share. Enjoy VMworld and enjoy the Pre-VMworld edition of the Scoop.
