Another day close to my first ever trip to VMworld, and another post on what I’m most excited about. Today I’m most excited about finally finishing up my VMworld schedule. First off, there are way too many things to see and do, and way too many parties. If I was to attend them all I would be going all day, never eating lunch or sleeping for more than 4 hours each day. Needless to say, I just can’t keep up with that schedule so I built my own. Here it is:
