VMworld 2020

In about one week VMworld will start. This year VMworld will be totally different than the previous years. One major difference, which is in your benefit, is that VMworld will be (mostly) completely free of charge. Isn’t that great!?

As you may be new to VMword I thought why not help you. So I have created a list of sessions that I would attend . I will try to create a list per category . So depending on the category you choose you will have mine recommended session.
