“Use VMworld as a week of free training. Attend the right sessions and you’ll learn more than you would on a week-long course. Book sessions with “Meet the Experts”, talk to vBrownBag hosts and try out VMware exclusive live Hands on Labs to learn more about all of VMware’s current and new products and services – Become the expert in your field at work!” (https://virtualg.uk/considering-vmworld-2018-top-10-secrets-to-vmworld/) 

 “Twenty years of innovation and being disruptors to the world of technology and that has not changed. VMware demonstrated at this years VMworld, that they are just as committed to being innovative within their own product lineup, and with the calculated partner decisions like AWS.” https://www.vmwarevelocity.com/vmworld-2018 

To be honest, this VMworld was the best I ever attended. Not because of the sessions (only did hang-space and Solutions Exchange) but rather of the great conversations I had during VMworld. It was really cool to meet all this great people I know only from Twitter and blogs and I’m also very proud that I had done a TechTalk for the #vBrownbag crew.” (http://www.vbrain.info/?s=vmworld) 

“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.” (https://virtuallyinclined.com/series/vmworld-2018/)
