For our third blogger roundup of 2019, we have Shawn Godinez, a Storage Solutions Architect at HPE! “I evangelize our best in class storage platforms to our partners and costumers.”




“VMworld has given me opportunities I once never thought possible.  In fact, I would not be where I’m at now without the people I’ve been able to network with, things I’ve been able to learn and activities I was able to attend.  I got to meet Pat Gelsinger last year which was a highlight for sure.  I would say just attending has given me the reach and resources to be able to further my career as a whole.  It’s also enabled me to build a platform, through my blog, to share the things I’ve learned with the greater community.” (Virtually Inclined)





Check-out Shawn’s blog, Virtually Inclined. You will not only get an inside scoop on attending VMworld as a Storage Solutions Architect, but also a breakdown of each day of VMworld 2017 & 2018. Shawn also provides helpful tips such as pre-flight checklists.  




Here are some sneak peeks into Shawn’s blog posts:


This year is shaping up to be another amazing time.  So much content to consume.  Can you believe there’s almost 1200 different sessions, breakouts, workshops, roundtables, discussions and keynotes.  That’s crazy.  I’ll be surrounded by industry peers, coworkers and many of my customers.  Don’t even get me started on all the dinners, happy hours and straight up parties with headliners such as Snoop Dogg and Run DMC!  That’s completely insane for a tech conference.


A veritable nerdtopia of cool technology and smart people.  It’s a marathon of breakouts, labs, sessions, networking with peers and events.  For the uninitiated VMworld is VMware’s annual conference showcasing the latest technologies and products for the now Dell owned company.  It is also a hell of a lot of fun if you’re into these sorts of things.


VMworld is a month and a half away, where does the time go? If you haven’t already, make sure to register today to secure your space at the industry’s top digital infrastructure event of the year.

Keep an eye out for our Blogger Round-Up every two weeks on the VMworld Blog! July 11th, we will be featuring Fabian Lenz who is a part of the technical team around SDDC, Horizon and VMware Cloud architecture and implementations.
