Eric L Nielsen
What sets VMworld apart from other conferences you’ve attended
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
the ecosystem for sure
Matt Lydy
@vGazza The awesome people from around the world!
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
@mlydy no doubt about. People and innovation are unique.
Jasdeep Singh
The vibe of the whole place... you feel you are part of something big, No disrespect to EMC World
Keith Townsend #CTODose
Unique community. VMware customers are extremely passionate and love sharing knowledge. Makes the conference "feel" different.
Jan Schwoebel
partners, vExperts just everything. This conference rocks!
Eric L Nielsen
For me, VM's are just super cool, HP/Dell, just don't have the cool software stack layers that allow us to make VirtualMachines
VMworld
@Jase_mtlngs915 We're flattered. Thanks for the kind words! It's a #ReadyForAny kind of vibe.
Nikki Staib
The ENERGY! I have never felt such "buzz" and excitement at any other shows (thinking back to the EVO:RAIL unveiling last year).
Tommy Berry
thanks for the tips everyone, this year will be my first!
Massimo Re Ferre'
the community angle, most definitely
Ed W
Expert-led Workshops and HoLs
Flash Global
We are excited to meet some amazingly smart folks. And looking forward to the energy
Eric L Nielsen
yes the energy is super fun, I've had people come over from Oracle and do their first conference and they are amazed.
Eric L Nielsen
Best big show that still feels little!
Flash Global
good! We've been to Oracle, so that is very good news to hear
Matt Lydy
until you've walked for four days straight LOL!
John Furrier
VMworld always has a good band - any word on the music for the party?
Matt Lydy
@furrier Neon Trees and Alabama Shakes
John Furrier
the community in the ecosystem is very much the highlight and the best feature for the show bc it's not all vmware it's inclusive
Eric L Nielsen
What advice do you have for first-time VMworld attendees
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
use the mobile App
VMworld
@vGazza Yes! The mobile app is a must for all #VMworld attendees. Very helpful.
Nikki Staib
Go to the NewV session on Sunday. Lots of great tips for navigating the event.
Matt Arvidson
@VMworld When will the app be released
Rodrigo Diaz
When the App will be published?
VMworld
@JMArvidson Mid-August, before the conference!
Keith Townsend #CTODose
don't over load your schedule. Leave time for networking.
Mikael Korsgaard
Go talk to people you haven't met before.
Eric L Nielsen
visit the hangspace!
Tony Dunn 😎
Network face-to-face vs. online, that is the best part of VMworld. Make connections that will last and then you will know who that avatar "really" is
Tommy Berry
sounds like networking is key, everyone keeps mentioning that..
Chris Chua
Use your own bag and not the VMworld one
Bryan Krausen
Spend time in Hang Space, introduce yourself to folks you don't know, watch the vBrownBag series, and talk to vendors in Solutions Exchange.
Keith Townsend #CTODose
ride around on a Ravello scooter or a wedding dress. You'll meet plenty of new people. (Both happened in past years)
Nikki Staib
Get to general session early!
Ian Noble
get to the solutions exchange early for the best swag & event invites
Ian Noble
get as fit as you can before you go
Rodrigo Diaz
I can't find the NewV Session in the schedule builder.
Eric L Nielsen
What is one key thing you are looking to learn about at VMworld 2015
Flash Global
Meeting a bunch of new companies to talk to in the space.
Brian Gracely
curious about how the open-source activities get presented in the context of the broader VMware portfolio. important or orphaned?
Jan Schwoebel
Meeting fellow vExperts and learn from some of technology leaders about storage and SDD
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
#VMworld is community event too. Great to see all the development around @VMware.
John Furrier
I'm looking forward to all the interviews on @theCUBE esp the VMware execs
Eric L Nielsen
I'm looking forward to the Puppet/Chef/Bitnami workshops in DevOps area this year.
Patricio Cerda
I want to learn more about SDN and NSX
Eric L Nielsen
@furrier Do I get an interview slot again!
Flash Global
There will be puppets?!
Stuart Miniman
state of the ecosystem - how cloud, containers and things like vCloud Air, NSX, VSAN impact what solutions get build around the VMware offerings
Eric L Nielsen
@patote83 Have you taken any NSX training yet?
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
I want to see @cloudnativeapps solutions. Many recent announcements around #containers.
Nikki Staib
I'm so busy at VMworld i like watching all the playback of the interesting interviews done @theCUBE
Keith Norbie
VMware Integrated OpenStack
Patricio Cerda
I'm a VCI, so I'm reading the training material by myself. But it would be great learn more from the specialist about NSX.
Jasdeep Singh
VMware's offerings in #hyperconverged infrastructure and #SDS
John Furrier
we can squeeze you in this year lots of great social trends to talk about as digital is going social big time
Rodrigo Gazzaneo
@rogerlund the most trendy tech right now is #Containers. Agree?
