It has begun! VMworld 2017!

Ok, so its really like day 2.3 of VMworld. The first two days were over in a flash and I find myself here on Tuesday trying to process all that I've done so far. The whirlwind of sessions, meeting people and viewing booths kept me distracted from how sore I was undoubtedly becoming. Meeting up with Ariel Sanchez and Edgar Sanchez, being introduced to a whole gaggle of other people much smarter than I.... taking sessions that are WAY out of my current league *cough*VSAN*cough*. So far it has been an amazing experience that I hope to repeat next year!I want to shout out to Veeam and Infinio for making my trip possible. Without their sponsorship I wouldn't have been able to attend. It was awesome to meet some of the vCommunity celebrities like  Edward Haletky, Jorge Torres, Mostafa Khalil, Corey Romero and so many more that I could fill a post with just names.I had a "Meet the Experts - Virtual Volumes with Pete Flecha", the "vDocumentation" session with Ariel…

Where are you going? I'm going to VMworld!

Hello! I wanted to take a minute to thank Greg Stuart, @vDestination, Rick Vanover, @RickVanover, Kirsten Stoner (couldn't find a twitter profile), as well as the other nice people over at Veeam, @veeam, as well as Infinio, @Infinio, for making it possible to go to VMworld for the first time! I'm looking forward to meeting everyone I can at VMworld, and to be honest with you, it wouldn't be possible without the support of these great people and vendors!

I fully plan to check out both vendors at the Vendor Showcase and hope I get to learn about both of their products. After VMworld I plan to take my experience and share it with others, as well as possibly finding a way to contribute to the VMware Community, as well as the next VMworld.

Again, thanks Greg for organizing the "Win a trip to VMworld 2017" contest! Hope to see you at VMworld!

Now to begin packing! It's going to be a busy trip! :)
