I get a lot of questions about why application developers should consider attending our event. I think we have a pretty good story from a Virtualization and Cloud perspective I hope you agree. Hope to see you there, so register soon.

Here are the top 5 reasons why application developers need to attend.

# 1. You are a developer looking at Virtualizing your applications and need to learn best practices. We have a great session dedicated to this topic. Tim H. will walk you through some common use cases and go into technical detail on best practices. This is one session you cannot miss if you are on the fence about Virtualizing your application.

VMworld 2010 – Tech Exchange – 5 minute video guaranteed to make you grin, or wonder what we do with our time…

Folks,

Just thought we would share an internal video our film crew put together for us. Its meant to be light humor and you might find one or two words that you would not use in front of your parents or kids, so I do apologize in advance. You might ask why are we releasing this video ? We thought it might be fun, and it would help shed some light on who we are and what we do with our time 😉 I usually do not watch any corporate videos but this one is worth a few minutes of your time. 

Tell us what you think, not really sure this humor translates in different countries but worth a shot. Hope to see you there.

Regards,

Pablo
