RSVP and Tune in this Friday: Twitter Chat with Sanjay Poonen

Twitter Chat

RSVP to this Twitter Chat: Friday, 9/19 at 9 a.m. PT

By Oliver Roll, Editor-in-Chief of Tribal Knowledge and VP, Global Corporate Communications at VMware

VMworld U.S. wrapped up a few weeks ago, but I still get charged up just thinking about it. Our marquee event was a celebration of our industry, and it was also a platform for the best and brightest in the biz to gather and discuss their ideas for the exciting future that awaits us.

One of the highlights for me was seeing our own Sanjay Poonen give his thoughtful and inspiring keynote. Sanjay and I want to keep the momentum — and the conversation — going. That’s why we’re hosting a Twitter Chat this Friday, September 19th, from 9am to 10am PST. We will discuss key takeaways from VMworld and how our industry will evolve the rest of this decade and beyond. There’s no shortage of discussion topics, that’s for sure.

We welcome all your questions and comments — after all, innovation is born from collaboration. Tune in and tweet using the hashtag #VMchat.
