Today I spent all day at the mothership VMware offices in Palo Alto, where the Partner Exchange (PEX) boot camps are being held, my friend @g_mulholland was also presenting the VSAN deep dive so It was great to get the chance to say hi and have a quick chat with him before he started the deep dive session.
I was also fortunate enough to catch up with @ericni25 who was kind enough to give me a quick tour of the video studio used for VMTN Community Roundtable Podcast. As you can see from the pictures this is a serious studio used for most of the marketing videos recorded at VMware.
I attended the VMware Technical Solutions Professional – Desktop Virtualisation (VTSP-DV) boot camp where we were provided insight into all things end-user computing at VMware.
- Horizon View 6.1 changes
- Identity Manager (formally Workspaces)
- App Volumes
- User Environment Manager
- Horizon Air
- Identity Manager
- vRealize Operations for Horizon (with XenApp plug-in).
I then went onto #vGravity hosted by the legend @cakeis_not_alie, who’d invited a great selection of the community along, what a great idea and a great bunch of people to hang out with before the start of VMworld!
I finished off with a late arrival at #vBeers, even though it was late I couldn’t attend VMworld without dropping in at the Chieftain on a Saturday night, as luck would have it I meet up with my good friend @kylemurley and had a great discussion with @arielsanchezmor about the whole VCDX submission process. Then phoned home to talk to the Wife and Kids before passing out, all in all a great start to the #VMworld weekend 🙂
