So the next two days I lost some of my content for hence the delay in posting but I want to get some of this up there! Mainly so I can also reflect prior to hopefully attending next year.
For me this below was one of my personal highlighted sessions but I don’t think it was recorded as I got to see some of my heroes
Wow what a line up with @JoeBaguley this session just keeps getting better and better! It’s true #possiblebeginswithyou how can we start this journey #VMworld #vmworld2018 #VMworldEurope #vExpert @VMworld @VMware pic.twitter.com/2aPK4BE6T3— Gareth Edwards (@GarethEdwards86) November 6, 2018
I was also fortune enough to take party in the vExpert daily chat with the amazing Angelo
I then popped over to a few sessions and then mentally prepared myself for my next talk! Also since doing this I have refined (I think) and I have now done it at the UKVMUG. I am sure there will be one final version of this with some more exciting code someday
The day did not stop there and the party was not too far ahead but we recorded a new vMashup edition where can be found here and this personally was a great thing for me as I love the Virtually Speaking guys podcast
This then proceeded for a quick dash to the Rubrik booth as I was on their #vRockstar cards this year and I wanted to sadly get the full collection to display at home
It was then party time! We all dropped off our bags and for once it was a VMworld party I could enjoy! No rushing off for a flight or jet lag and we have some great memories from it, one of mine are here below
Now if you are here for the VR bits here they are, I think they turned out well especially when the confetti falls! It looks great on my Oculus. I would have gotten more but shall we say I think the UKVMUG or all of the UK VMUGs/vExperts were trying to drink the bar dry and cause a scene near the photo booth! You can use your mouse to look around too if you click on them and open them on YouTube!
Whilst we were waiting I did get this awesome caricature done though
The next day I am sure we all felt a little fragile but I managed to get some more sessions done and follow up great talks I have with people! I also managed to get this VR Tour done around the solutions exchange. I did this during a quiet time as usually it very busy and I didn’t want to trip over people so usually its much more busier than this
After this a few of us did the last few sessions and then a vendor crawl to see what we could get for the UKVMUG Charity Bag
One awesome stand was the VMUG stand where they were printing T-Shirts
I have a few more separate posts still to come such as the vExpert Shirts and also a few tips about conference and specifically VMworld but this year they made it for me. I will just leave a small gallery of any of the photos I haven’t used just for memories really and to try and inspire the next person to go!
I just hope I can make it next year and I will be much more on point with the uploads!
