Here’s your chance to add to the swag total or get some VMworld swag and feel like you were actually there! Mr. RTFM himself, Mike Laverick, has put together a giant bag of swag aka “SwagBag” and he’s giving it away as an early Christmas present, yes it is still October, barely. If you didn’t get any official VMworld swag, head over to RTFM and enter to win Mike’s swag giveaway.
