Today is the real start to all of the action at VMworld. Last night there was the “Welcome Reception” down in the solutions exchange. I was actually really impressed with the amount of attendees that were there last night. In fact talking to a few of the vendors they were also as surprised by the numbers. In addition, last night there were a variety of parties, including #VMunderground. I heard it was a blast, unfortunately due to my back i had to bail early.
This morning i am sitting in the Hang Space, meeting quite a few cool people, waiting for the General Session to start. I am expecting and hoping for some really cool information to be delivered. I am expecting a very interesting and exciting keynote.
There looks to be some really neat Hands-On Labs. I recommended heading there in the middle of breakouts, lunch, etc. Thats when it is typically WAY less busy. I do like how they are breaking out the lines into general “technologies” so that you can possibly get to the Lab you want quicker then waiting in one giant combined line.
I do recommend attending as many breakout sessions as possible. There are some really good looking ones out there. There is a LOT of NSX stuff, which i have a bunch registered for. There is also some neat ones around EVO, which looks to be very very interesting.
Anyway, everybody enjoy today, make sure you see as much as you can. Enjoy the technology, the people and the celebrations later.
