Day 3 is the day after the VMworld Party and it is normally a very quiet day around VMworld. There is no General Session and a lot of people either do not attend any sessions or just leave the conference early. Personally, I only tend to minimize the sessions I go to on this day and spend some time in the Hands On Lab and just walking around the Solutions Exchange.

For the second day running at VMworld 2017, I decided to sit outside of the General Session and watch it on the screen whilst sitting at table with my laptop. General Session The General Session on day 2 started with an attendee Q&A session with Pat Gelsinger, Sanjay Poonen and Ray O’Farrell. The questions covered all sorts of topics, including: VMware in the age of the cloud? - Pat and Sanjay gave a consistent message around VMware’s vision of any cloud, any application and any device.

This year I decided not to sit in the General Session but watch it from the hang space to see what that was like. I think I prefer the General Session Room as it is more of an immersive experience. However, the ability to use a table/desk to take notes does help lots! General Session The General Session, with Pat Gelsinger, was very similar to the one in Las Vegas - it was only 2 weeks ago after all .

This is the first in a series of posts covering my time at VMworld 2017 in Barcelona. Flights I decided to fly in earlier this year, so after a 0700 start I got to London Heathrow and got on the 10:45 BA flight to Barcelona! The flight was relatively smooth but as I don’t fly as much anymore, I forgot those in cattle class don’t get fed for free anymore!
