Over the past few VMWorld events, I have sent a list of speaker recommendations to my customers outlining some of my personal picks for the sessions I think would be the best to attend based on either my direct experience with the speaker, through personal relationship, or presenting with them at another event. I have combed through all of the speaker sessions, and chosen only the ones that I know (IMHO) who are “golden” in technical knowledge or presentation skills! Try not to miss the ones marked “Highly Recommended” as they are sessions that have an extraordinary speaker or topic.
Remember, the standard disclaimer applies: These are my own picks (not those of VMware, and not meant to be exclusive of the many other talented presenters and contributors) so your mileage may vary! BTW, stop by the Hands-On Lab at both Vegas and Copenhagen this year to say hi, since that is where I will be living with my other Lab Captains!
