My expectations from VMworld 2014

Besides sessions I will focus on speaking with vendors about latest trends in IT, I will definitely meet vExperts and VCDX. I will skip Hands on Labs because later on all of them will be available online and this is waste of valuable time.

Besides that I will go to three different parties.

  • Monday 13.10.2014 – PernixData Party
  • Tuesday 14.10.2014 – Veeam Party
  • Wednesday 15.10.2014 – VMworld Party
