My schedule for VMworld 2016 Europe


It is almost time for VMworld Barcelona.  That means that if  you want to have all the flexibility in choosing the sessions you want to attend, you also need to start as soon as possible with filling in the schedule builder with the sessions you want to attend. This year I'm going together with eight colleagues to VMworld. This year I'm attending next to the 'standard VMworld conference' also the Partner exchange and the TAM day. In the evening there are many vendor sponsored parties, The Veeam party in Octa and the VMware Benelux Village party of which my employer KPN is Diamond Sponsor. Next to the party, KPN also hosts a session, ** VMware KPN Hybrid Cloud update** on Wednesday from 15:30 to 17:00. My focus this year is on the following topics:

  • devops
