For everyone here on the VMware Skyline Team, we want to thank you for your support our of #TechforGood campaigns.
These campaigns are our way to connect with you, our valued customers in the form of a “treasure hunt” where you’re asked to perform various tasks within the VMware Skyline service and compete for various prizes that you can allocate to the charity of your choice.
It’s a fun way to share our mutual enthusiasm for Skyline, give us an excuse to share our sense of humor, and most importantly, enable everyone in the tech community to do “some good” in a world that could really use a helping hand right now.
Our most recently campaign is a parody of Office Space, a popular movie that gave a sympathetic and humorous depiction of Information Technology workers and garnered a cult following.
It was the perfect stage to play out some of the day-to-day (and sometimes funny) challenges that we face at work and highlight how VMware Skyline can solve them.
A chance to win $1,500 for your charity AND a red stapler signed by Milton! That’s right! To win at this level, you must complete all 8 tasks, so keep an eye out for our tweets throughout April.

Here’s the cast of the campaign. You may recognize some of them.
