The Year 2020 keeps bringing us surprises. First global pandemic which is still up and running, last days a huge explosion in Beirut and I really want 2020 to be over. Godzilla - please don’t wake up yet.
Funny things aside - what we didn’t expect is the switch to digital conferences. It happened for Google, Microsoft and others. VMware follows the path as well. I really like it and I would like to share it with you as well.
This year VMworld will be fully digital. As you can see below there are two options how you can participate. You can register for a Free VMworld pass ( I did it already) with two flavors - free and Premier. Of course Premier pass costs a bit but it is a fraction of the normal VMworld pass.
