VMworld 2016: This is my Schedule

Like many of you, I am also looking forward to attending VMworld this year. As I did last year I’ve not filled my schedule completely with sessions. Back to back sessions are difficult to attend because of attention span, so I’d had to make some choices.

This is just a quick post, listing the sessions I have booked for myself, in the hope that it might help someone who hasn’t chosen/finalized their sessions yet. For the last couple of years, my focus has been on SDDC (Software-Defined Datacenter) and Cloud technologies in general and that also reflected a bit in my session selections.

In the evening there are many vendor sponsored parties, including the famous vRockstar at the HardRock Cafe, The Veeam party in Octa and the VMware Benelux Village party of which my employer KPN is Diamond Sponsor.

A complete list of the parties can be found at the vbrain.info site

So, without further ado, here is the list:
