I will be in Las Vegas for the VMworld 2017 in a couple of weeks. The main reason a session at Future:Net and getting to sit in the sessions themselves. Not something that I get to do often enough!
Future:Net is by-invitation conference. To qualify for an invite you should currently be a senior enterprise, networking or cloud architect, principal engineer, CTO, or master practitioner of cloud technology, or currently have another senior role in networking or cloud architecture. You can apply https://www.vmware.com/futurenet. (Attendance is free but you cover your own T&E.)
I do have free time on Mon & Tues afternoon after conducting my press duties and would look forward to chatting with anyone: customers, audience, vendors, startups, PR people. All are welcome.
Schedule a time by sending me email with proposed times (only Monday 1-5, Tues 1-5) so I can plan to meet you in the press room, record a podcast if you have an idea, or maybe some video. Get in touch and lets talk about what you would like to do: firstname.lastname@example.org
Youtube: I’m hoping to do some Youtube recording, talking to real people about their networking stories. This could involve beer if I can find somewhere that has enough light and reasonably quiet.
When I don’t have other duties, I will do my best to stop by Blogging Tables in the VMTN area of VM Village so I can meet as many people as possible.
