My mail server reports it came through yesterday? I think the session signups should be reset and give everyone a fair chance personnaly.
This would not be fair to those of us who paid attention to the VMworld site in order to sign-up for sessions when the system went live.
I signed up for sessions prior to recieving the e-mail, which I recieved two weeks ago.
I found the process fair.
We just posted a new VMworld Session Overview page, which I hope is helpful to you. Although the schedule has settled down, there are occasional changes happening still.* The content calendar and interactive schedule builder at http://www.cplan.com/vmware/cc and http://www.cplan.com/vmware/sb/reg.htm will always have the most up-to-date information.
\* for instance, I imagine some folks may interested in this new session, PAC879: http://www.vmware.com/community/thread.jspa?threadID=23572
From the VMTN front page:
There are over one hundred different sessions and labs at VMworld 2005. Use the new VMWorld Session Overview to find the sessions most valuable to you, then ask questions and post comments in each session's VMTN Discussion Forum. After the conference, come back to download presentations and audio recordings from each session.
So does this "session builder" thing mean sessions won't be first come-first server like last year or is it just for attendee convenience?
Session signup caused me no grief whatsoever. I got into every session I went to.
