VMworld is almost here … here are your must attend networking sessions

**updated 8/27 to include room numbers!**

VMworld is upon us next week at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. We have a fantastic assortment of sessions from beginner level right up to the very advanced—something for everyone.

Breakout Sessions

As usual, we have a good assortment of networking sessions hosted by ourselves and our partners. I’ve listed the sessions in chronological order (I’m presenting the first two and then I’m done!). Srinivas Neginhal’s “VMware vSphere 4 Networking Deep Dive” (TA2525) is a 90-minute session and is also repeated at Thursday at 4:00pm.
