#VMworld 2016 – My session picks

| 20/07/2016 | Tags: , , ,

vegasIn my post yesterday I promised to post my VMworld session picks, so here it is! I have filled my schedule, and even added some alternate picks when there were too many good sessions to go for. My session picks are focussing around:

  • vRealize Automation
  • NSX
  • VSAN
  • PowerCLI, APIs and automation

Now, before anyone tells me I’ve picked too many and I won’t make it to all of them – I know! I can guarantee I’ll get distracted/tired/hungry and won’t make all of them, but if I could…
