Have you integrated VMware solutions and technologies in an innovative way? Do you have a best practice or proven tips and tricks to recommend? If so, we want you to tell your story at VMworld – and our call for papers is now open.

The submission deadline for proposals is Tuesday, March 13, 2018 at 06:00PM PDT. This year’s conference highlights key success factors for digital transformation including hyper-converged infrastructure, cloud-native apps, virtualized applications, cloud networking, endpoint management, and windows delivery.

We’re looking for stories about your successes in these areas to inspire the VMware community. Are you ready to take the stage?

Mark your calendars, because VMworld 2018 registration will open on May 8 for both our US and Europe events. And great news: We’re keeping our prices at 2017 rates, with our early-bird full conference pass priced at $1,795 for VMworld US and at €1,275 for VMworld Europe.

We’ll also offer our usual group and alumni discounts. Check back on VMworld.com to get all the details, as we’ll post all our registration packages soon.

Want to be an extra early bird? If you just can’t wait until May 8 to grab your conference pass for VMworld US, we’ve got two ways for you to jump in early. If you’re a VMware customer, your direct sales rep can add a special SKU (VMWORLD-TCKT-US) to any software order. Or you can make use of your company’s training dollars now and purchase a full conference pass from the VMware eStore before registration officially opens. Both options cost $1,795 and are for VMworld US only.


We’re always working to improve the VMworld website and make it more useful and relevant to our attendees.

We’ll be rolling out some exciting changes over the next few weeks, including (by popular demand!) a gallery that features top images from VMworld; a quick-links section on the homepage so you can jump straight to your favorite resource pages; and streamlined navigation.

Drop by VMworld.com next month to take a look at the updates.


This month marks the 20th anniversary of the moment when the term “open source” entered our lexicon. In February of 1998, a group of developers came together to describe their ideals for software development, or more precisely, to create a name for the licenses that covered such projects.

Join VMware’s Dirk Hondehl in an exploration of what this 20th anniversary means and why open source has wrought incredible changes in the IT industry and in the way software is developed.
