VMworld 2014 US Session Picks

VMworld 2014 call for papers public session voting opened earlier this week. This is a rare opportunity for the public to have some influence over the sessions available at one of the major tech conferences. Based on where I’m at, I’ve zeroed in on certain sessions. Sessions that focus on home and test labs, Oracle workloads and (continuous) provisioning. I’m also keeping my eye out for VCDX/VCAP boot camps. I’m looking at VCAP certification plus it meets VMware’s new recertify criteria.

It’ll be interesting to see how many sessions mention Docker this year, much like Puppet last year. Docker doesn’t have the same business connections with VMware as Puppet, but the timing just seems right. If not Docker, expect containerization in general to have a noticeable presence.

Here’s the list of sessions I’ve voted for, captured here for my reference for when it’s time to build my VMworld agenda. Maybe, just maybe, someone else will find this useful too.

That’s a lot of picks, but even if only a handful of these sessions are available at VMworld this year I’ll be happy.
