Looks like I will be speaking at VMworld on a panel session with Thomas Corfmat, Igor Stoyanov, Sean Harrison, and Vivienne Cleveland:
Last year Greg Stuart over at vDestination.com gave away a free trip to VMworld 2011. It looks like he has done it again with the aid of Veeam, TrainSignal, and Symantec. Some quick info:
- VMworld 2012 Full Conference Pass
- Air fare to SFO up to $500 USD
- 5 nights hotel accomodations (Sun-Thurs)
Also, it seems that Drobo has donated a Drobo B800i iSCSI Storage Array as well for the winner. Here is a short snip of the requirements:This trip contest is based on need and need alone. If you can’t afford to go to VMworld, if your company won’t send you then this is your chance. In order to enter to win you will need to make a comment on this blog post and include the following three points in your comment:
(1)Describe to me and my sponsors why you need to go to VMworld 2012, (2)What you are most looking forward to (it’s okay if it’s Bon Jovi, it may be what I’m most looking forward to!) and (3)How you plan on paying it forward.
This shouldn’t take more than one paragraph really, you won’t have a better chance if you write a novel, keep it short and concise. You will be chosen by a panel of vExperts based on your answers to the questions above.

So this year I have a couple of topics that I and a couple of others (Cody Bunch, Joerg Lew) have turned into for the Call for Papers. User voting for the topics has opened (here) and we would appreciate your help in getting these sessions selected. Here are the sessions:
I know that I would definitely appreciate your vote for the above sessions! Also, don’t forget to vote for the many other great sessions that have been turned in. There are way too many to list but you can go see for yourself!
Much to my surprise, VMworld 2012 CFP is now open (http://www.vmworld.com/thread/5311). I will be submitting a few topics with a couple of my vCO buds. I won’t go into too much detail because I don’t want to give it away but we have some sessions that I believe people will want to attend. There will be quite a bit of information and most of it will be useful, hahaha! Just kidding, it will be 100% useful. So keep an eye out for a post later in the next few weeks regarding any sessions that I will hopefully be presenting along side some other great guys involved.
