I’m doing something new this year before VMworld 2014.  I decided that there is so much good content coming from my co-workers, that it might be helpful to get introduced to them as speakers before the event.  My goal is that people who enjoy my presentations will start following and listening to the presentations by some other very good people.  The problem is, you may just knot know who the people are when you see the presenter names in the catalog.  Here is the first of a few online interviews I am doing to help you get introduced to some new speakers!

Meet Jay Marshall, Senior Technical Marketing Architect for the vCloud Hybrid Service business unit, and good friend of mine.  He’s also a fellow “East Coaster” and I think you find his sense of humor and technical knowledge above and beyond many other people.  He’s been with the business unit about a year, same as me, and focuses mostly on what we call the “Developer Persona.” It’s interesting as I focus on the “IT Persona” so we don’t always see eye to eye.

We conducted this interview via Skype so you can get to know Jay a little better and more “In-Person”.  The sessions he will be presenting are:
