Vmworld 2009: Sunday 30th August – Day 0
So Vmworld 2009 officially starts tomorrow (Monday).
Today was the day to socialize with folks, partners, some VMware folks, some EMC folks and tons of customers.
After a 6-hour flight this morning, got to San Francisco. Registration for Vmworld 2009 was open today, had a chance to catchup on the possible classes & labs to attend.
See some pictures of Vmworld 2009 here

While walking around, found a rack of Cisco products with amber lights, may be some maintenance work going on it.

Then later in the day meet up with @edsai and went to the Thirsty Beers hosted by a bunch of Vendors including Nexanta, Veeam, and many more.
Had a chance to hookup with some familiar faces on twitter @jasonbouche @scott_lowe @duncanyb @vseanclark @rbrambley and many more. See the pictures from the Raffle sponsored by the vendors.
Evan Powell – Nexanta, CEO
Took 10 more pictures, but seems like they are damaged and couldn’t upload it to the site. The Blackberry camera doesn’t work always….some other pictures includes those of @vseanclark @theronconrey @jtroyer, some veeam folks, etc.
Then later meet up with some EMC folks, specifically @davegraham and folks from @sakacc group.
Anyways stay tuned for Day 1 of Vmworld 2009 tomorrow with some technology post.
