Developer Center at VMworld Europe 2014

The last week at Barcelona was not only fun but eventful with great emphasis on knowledge sharing at the Knowledge Zone in the Partner Lounge at VMworld. The zone was buzzing with activity from partners who got conversant with VMware Developer Center  and Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) Programs.

The booth exchanged interesting conversations with the crowds gathered at the Knowledge Zone and offered multiple topics of discussion varying from development, APIs, certifications, programs, partner alliance to getting listed on the VCG. It proved to be very helpful for partners to learn that most of the information needed to develop their solutions was public and did not cost a dime.

The booth offered a raffle yet again like in its VMworld US counterpart. The response was massive with many partners signing up to do the honors. Pictures were taken with the sign board to showcase their encouragement for the VMware Developer Center.


Each day at the end of day, happy faces took home their prized possession- the quadcopter!
