VMware TAM Source 11.14

Posted by nisserow Aug 19, 2019



FROM THE EDITORS VIRTUAL DESK
Hi everyone, yes we are now less than 2 weeks away from VMworld US 2019 in San Francisco. Have you used schedule builder and reserved the sessions you wish to attend? I always advise my customers to at least be on the waitlist for the sessions they want to attend but are already full in case the session size is expanded and possibly your waitlist becomes an attendance. In addition the same holds true for the special TAM Customer Central session, many of which have already had their capacity expanded in order to accommodate the demand.

This week we continue our VMworld coverage from TAM and Education as well as some tweets that may be of interest via the @VMwareTAM Twitter Account.

In the meantime, please enjoy this weeks newsletter, and chat to your VMware TAM/Sales team representative if you require any further information or feel free to email us at tamsource@vmware.com and we will do our best to answer your question or provide any assistance that we can.

I wish you all a fantastic week ahead and will be sending a final pre-VMworld update next week before the main event.

Virtually Yours

TAM @ VMWORLD
Where Battlebots, Robot Wars and IT Intersect [TAM3906U]
Are you a fan of BBC TV’s Robot Wars, or ABC’s Battlebots as well as a die-hard VMware fan …. Then we have the session for you as a TAM exclusive. Ed Hoppitt is VMware’s Director of Modern Apps and Cloud Native Platforms by day, and by night is the reigning World Champion from the hit BBC TV Series ‘Robot Wars’ as well as one of the stars of ABC’s ‘Battlebots’. This year the focus for his team at the moment is re-building and re-architecting the core of how his fighting robots work – focusing on using data, telemetry and software for a competitive advantage. Join Ed for a light-hearted discussion of the challenges of designing, building and running a 220lb combat robot and just how the world of DevOps, Agile Development and what he focusses on when trying to build robust, reliable platforms (so not that far away from IT it turns out after all).
