VMworld 2013 Itinerary

An event 10 years in the making! 2013 marks the 10th VMworld Conference here in the US and it has officially begun.  I arrived into San Francisco yesterday and have already reconnected with some vFriends, had a great dinner with an awesome customer and even was involved in a high-speed chase (ask me to tell you the story over a couple beers)!

Like I’ve said in prior years, VMworld is by far the best IT conference on the planet. There isn’t one event that captures everything from core infrastructure components and software all the way up the stack through application development and end-user computing devices. One full week filled with education, networking, entertainment and awesome technology!

The networking opportunities have to be the best piece of VMworld, never will you be able to meet with other people as passionate about a single thing as you are. Now that VMware has a clear cut focus on the Software-Defined Data Center I think we’ll learn a lot more about some exciting new products and technologies focused around Storage, Networking and Security. Over the past year VMware has been trimming a lot of fat, and migrating some key products to a joint initiative between EMC/VMware called Pivotal. I think what this means for the industry is that VMware will be laser focused on SDDC and End-User Computing.

So here is my schedule, full of great sessions, fun networking opportunities, awesome parties and completely slammed from morning to evening….boy I love VMworld! At the bottom of the page I’m going to include some “Interested” sessions and Vendors, these are sessions that I wasn’t able to schedule due to conflict but that I’d still very much like to watch perhaps on-demand after the conference.

VMworld 2013 – Ask the Experts Panel Sessions

Wow…another year, and another VMworld coming up.  I can’t believe how fast time goes by, and how fast things evolve in the tech industry. I know it’s cliche to say that this will be the most exciting VMworld, because I say that every year, but honestly every year brings something new and this year is going to be no different.

Lots of changes happening to VMware, specifically around the reorganization of people and products. It finally looks like VMware has a clear cut focus, Datacenter Virtualization (Cloud/SDDC) and End-User Computing. Pivotal was formed to take 100% of the Next-Gen Application space and other products (ie: Zimbra) were sold off. VMware can now focus 100% on what they’re good at. I think we have to thank Pat Gelsinger for the disruptive yet extremely good changes VMware has gone through the past year.

So, enough blabbing, why are we really here? Well, I’ll post a full informative VMworld post in the next few days or so which will detail out my schedule and what sessions I think  people should be checking out.  This post is to remind people of two great sessions that I’ll be running at VMworld.

Ask the Experts is a highly successful session that I’ve ran for the past 6 years and this year it’s only going to get better! I’ve broken it out into two separate sessions, one hosted by expert vBloggers and another hosted by VMware Certified Design Experts (VCDX). Don’t let the titles fool you, these sessions aren’t about asking how to get into blogging, or how to obtain your VCDX (although, those are both valid questions). These sessions are for you, the audience, to ask any question your heart desires around any VMware focused topic. Why isn’t this working? How should I architect my vCloud landscape? What type of storage layout should I use for VDI?

With that said, the success of these sessions are strictly dependent on YOUR participation. So, please register for VSVC4569 – Ask the Expert vBloggers and VSVC4570 – Ask the Expert VCDX’s, attend the session and get vocal! Ask some questions!  If you’re a little shy, or perhaps not attending VMworld San Francisco you can also submit your question prior and if there is time we’ll get to it on stage live at VMworld! So please, if you do have a question feel free to submit a questionnaire with one of the links presented below. If you’re attending VMworld SF I hope to see you there, if you’re not extend a hello to me on Twitter! (@rick_vmwaretips)
