Yesterday ended up being rather a full day with the General session, tonnes of questions about certifications and then helping with the Test Track (where you can do one or more sample DCA questions in 10 min and maybe win a prize). Afterwards, I attended one of the VCDX parties and then went to the Occidental Cigar Bar (on Pine Street in San Francisco) to join my manager and his son for a cigar.
Although many view conferences as avenues for companies to market and advertise to you, there is a fair amount of networking for information that is traded in the breakfasts, lunches, dinners and after dinner events. And that is one of the best reasons to attend a conference like this. Being able to connect with VMware experts and employees to find the answers to questions about how things work or how to fix things that no longer work. It was also good to hear from people how much they like our videos at VMware Learning. We should have some more new videos before year’s end so watch this blog and that space for them.

Today I’ll be in the Hang Space again (we’re kind of hidden behind the Cloud Cred area). You can get the networking diagram from Rick Blythe of the Knowledge Management team so definitely drop by for that.
