CloudCred and the vForum

VMware have announced the vForum which is next week on Tuesday April the 19th so what is the vForum all about I hear you cry?

Well it’s a half-day online virtual conference, there will be a keynote like any conference including Pat Gelsinger on “5 CIO Priorities to Drive Digital Business” Then you can explore new VMware solutions and engage with experts in technical chat sessions:

  •  Test-drive a variety of VMware solutions with 8 hands-on labs (HOL)
  • Attend up to 15 breakout sessions, including the software-defined data center, end-user computing, and the hybrid cloud
  • See how VMware NSX unifies platforms across clouds for a new level of virtualization
  • View unique product demos led by VMware system engineers
  • Get unlimited access to eBooks, tech tips, and other product-related resources
  • Win a variety of awesome prizes!

Re the HOL there is a new one being launched at the vforum “What’s New in vRealize Automation 7 HOL-SDC-1633 Hands-On Lab for more information see here.

Obviously being online it running 9am to 2pm PST so here in the UK that equates to 5pm to 10pm . That’s either a blessing or a curse depending on how you feel about working late, I’m at least going to need to get home from work at some point.

But even if you can’t make all 5 hours it’s well worth taking a look, but you need to at least register so I recommend you do that sooner than later here
