I'm not a real blogger (due to time constraints) so my report will be very brief…

 

This was my second VMworld Europe (on February I also attendee at PEX 2010), and first time at Copenhagen.

The city is very nice, but a little far, expensive and cold for me (fortunately the weather was fine for all the days). Locations was good (although I prefer Cannes, or other new places like Barcellona, for example) but Bella Center was large enough for all the attendees (and lunch place was more comfortable then the one for Cannes!) and good served by public metro and trains.

The metro/train pass and the shuttles for the airport were a really good idea.

 

About the event, as other people have written, labs where one of the best thing!

A lot of labs, well designed, on several arguments.

Maybe the only defect (if I have to find one) is that the performance on few lab was not optimal (I see that the View lab was too slow for me).

 

About the sessions, most of them were very interesting (and I just wait to have all of them online to see what I’ve missed). Maybe some technical sessions were not enough technical (from my point of view).

 

But the best think of this kind of events (IMHO) is the social part, the possibility to meet and know several people, talk with expert or share ideas and though…

Probably I will forget some people, sorry for that…

It was an honor and pleasure to meet some people from VMware like John Troyer and Jon Hall, several VCDX like John Arrasjid, Scott Lowe, Wade Holmes, Duncan Epping, Frank Denneman and Andrew Hald (the last three were in my panel, although Frank formally was only an observer).

Also several people of the community were present, I cannot list all them of them, so I just mention Ully Hankeln (aka continuum in the community).

 

Last mention of all the people from my County (Italy) and a wish to start a local VMUG…
