VMworld: 8 VMTN Community Opportunities You Don’t Want to Miss

VMware Technology Network is fueled by customers, partners, and employees like you, who take the time to read and contribute information to our VMware ecosystem. Under the VMTN umbrella, all of community is captured – from bloggers, to vExperts, to developers in {code}, to CloudCred leaders.

To recognize VMTN Community contributors, there are going to be 8 fantastic programs running at VMworld – including some for those who cannot attend the event. Get excited and get signed up for the following:

For the Folks at Home:

  1. Beams (VMworld US only):

There will be three Beams at the VMTN Community Area. These devices can be accessed and controlled from your personal computer. They provide the freedom to explore VMvillage, interact with customers, and see the sights – allowing you to attend VMvillage and the VMTN Community area from the comfort of your own home. Sign up now!

  1. VMTN Homepage Takeover

For VMworld US and Europe, the VMTN homepage will feature a complete VMworld community Takeover. This page will feature livestream videos, social, podcasts, blogs, Hackathon updates, and more! If you’re not attending VMworld, but want to be a part of the action, bookmark this page to stay in the loop.

For the Show-Goers:

  1. vBrownBag TechTalks – A VMTN Member

vBrownBag – a VMware Technology Network Member has worked to make the 2017 community Tech Talk experience at VMworld US and Europe exceptional. These talks will take place in the VMTN Community area in VMvillage. In US we will have 77 deep-dive technical sessions presented throughout the week and 47 in Europe. Register to attend these talks in the US and Europe on ScheduleBuilder now!

  1. Podcast Booths

At our VMTN Community Area in VMvillage we will have podcast booths available to enable the VMware community to produce quality audio content in a quiet area. In the US, there will be 2 podcast booths, in Europe there will be 1. No qualifications needed, but it is BYOAV (bring your own AV). Reserve a slot in US or reserve a slot in Europe while you still can!

  1. Blogger Program

In the VMTN Community area, there will be several blogger tables set-up to provide a convenient space for bloggers to write, charge, and network with fellow bloggers and VMware employees. The new VMware Blogger Program Manager, Elsa Mayer, will be manning this area in the US and Europe to introduce her plans for the program and hand-out SWAG do nothing else… Don’t miss the opportunity to stop by. 😉

  1. {code}fest

VMware {code} – the official VMware program for developers – will be stationed in the VMTN Community area. Come visit VMware {code} program manager, Tim Bonnemann, at his VMware {code} pod to learn more about the program, sign-up, and get more SWAG do nothing else. Not only will {code} have a pod here, but there are {code}fest sessions available for registration for all developers. Stay tuned for further news around {code}fest, including a Monday night Hackathon!

  1. CloudCred

For the 4th consecutive year, CloudCred will support the VMware Hands-On Labs by running the CloudCred, Hands-On Labs Challenge. Each lab and workshop will have its own unique, corresponding task on the CloudCred website. Players completing the tasks at VMworld will score points. Every day, CloudCred & the Labs will award prizes to those people landing in the top spots on the CloudCred, Labs Leaderboard, as well as for additional activity. Visit CloudCred community manager, Noell Grier, in the Hands-on Labs area at VMworld US or Europe, to learn more.

  1. vExpert Party

Each year, vExpert Advocacy Manager, Corey Romero, hosts all of the vExperts for an after-hours event at a fantastic location near VMworld. Inside-scoop: this years US party will be held at the Las Vegas Pinball Hall of Fame. If you are a vExpert, watch your email for invitations to both the US and Europe parties.

And that’s a wrap! I will see you folks either virtually, or in person at the VMTN Community Area in VMvillage in just over a month.

For further information or questions around these programs, email the VMTN Community Manager, katieb@vmware.com.

VMworld Podcast Booths Available in the VMTN Community Area Booth

This year, VMTN is making it a priority to empower podcasters. At our VMTN Community Area in VMvillage we will have podcast booths available to enable the VMware community to produce quality audio content in a quiet area. This means, when you’re sharing news and opinions, you won’t have to share the background noise of 9,999+ people walking around a convention center.

In the U.S. there will be 2 podcast booths and in Europe there will be 1. These booths will have four walls and a ceiling to optimize audio within the booth. Time within these booths will be allocated in a first come first serve basis. To reserve a time please fill out the following form:


Europe: https://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-35674

U.S.: https://communities.vmware.com/docs/DOC-35644

*There will be no AV tools provided. Please bring your own recording devices if necessary.

VMTN will also promote your podcasts should you opt in. At the top of the above documents, there will be a link to a form. Should you choose to fill out the form, your podcast will be added to our featured podcasts list on VMTN.

See you at VMworld 2017!
