My Expectations – VMworld 2016

vmworldThis time in a fortnight I will have just landed back in the UK after my very first VMworld in Barcelona.  I’m not 100% sure what to expect from the 4 full days, but hope to immerse myself in all the cool stuff VMware have to talk about.

Add to that the ability to spend the evenings catching up (and networking) with other colleagues, vBloggers, vExperts and anyone who generally just wants to talk tech (over a beverage or three).

I’ve tailored the majority of my session/time around SDDC and SDN (EUC – whilst fab – really isn’t my thing).

So what are my sessions? Where can you find me during me VMworld?
