My Schedule for VMworld EMEA 2013

This year I will attend my 5th VMworld in a row. Started back in 2010 my preferences changed over the years from doing a lot of breakout sessions in 2010, completing all Labs in 2011 and winning a free VMworld conference pass to attending both US and EMEA conference as a blogger in 2012. For 2013 here is my personal schedule:

In my “spare time” you can find me in the Solution Exchange, in the Hang space or walking around. My main focus will be to get in touch with my fellow blogger and twitter followers for some talk.
If I don’t recognize you don’t take it personal. Twitter and blogs photos are different to real life get-together.
VMworld is the best way to meet all the great people in the industry and have some talk with them.
And with these guys I have to go for a beer 🙂 @BasRaayman @matthiaseisner @lessi001 @magander3 @vMario156
