VMworld 2013 marked the 10th year of VMworld goodness. For me, this signified my 5th straight and 6th overall time attending VMworld US. It, also, represented the first time that I was free of Conference responsibilities and deliverables since I paid my own way. It was my best experience at VMworld ever and my gold standard.
In this week’s episode of So Say SMEs in Virtualization & Cloud, Todd and I discuss VMworld 2013 announcements with a starry appearance. Let us know what you think.
VMworld 2013 marked the first that I did not have to work VMworld USA as a speaker, booth and theater presenter, or social media lead at VMworld for Dell. And it was my best experience ever. I was finally able to do as I pleased, which meant less fluffy work and more meaningful conversations.
I had only one objective at VMworld 2013 and that was to enjoy it thoroughly. Since enjoyment is subjective, I thought about how I could measure it objectively. I came up with a simple metric – one shining moment. One shining moment is defined as a point in time in which a contextual conversation with someone at the show provided a memorable, meaningful point of clarity and tranquility.
The one shining moment metric became the basis for a series of blog that will highlight my highlights at VMworld 2013. I’m not sure how many there will be because I took no notes or recordings. I will be doing this based solely on the conversations that left one shining moments in my mind.
