When you choose the event that you want to attend, which one jumps out this year for you?
+50 GC Points
I've never had the opportunity to attend any of these.
Do you have an event that you have found to be good to attend, Russell? Always curious to hear about what folks are finding to be valuable.
I've enjoyed my trips to VMUG. I haven't been to these others...
VMworld for ever!
VMworld all the way!
I vote for a VMUG Usercon as a 2nd runner up... if you cannot attend VMworld, the VMUG Usercon is a good fall back. You get the same sort of feel... breakout sessions, exhibit hall with lots of vendors, etc... without having to pay to attend an event.
VMworld offers a wide variety of useful information and I'm always technically satisfied at the end of the week.
I'm with Ben. I absolutely love VMworld. One of the main reasons, it's like a high school reunion for me in the sense that I can meet up with friends I've made over the years (from past events and online) who travel from across the globe to come to the VMworld US event. But, the local VMUGs are really great! I'm also starting to branch out to some other shows that I haven't been to before like DockerCon and OpenStack Summit. Both were very interesting first time events for me this year.
VMworld, it is the best learning experience that gives me new ideas and alot of takeaways to share with team members.
Cisco Live is always a good time!!!
VMworld , I'm looking towards the coming event in Spain
Openstack all the way!!! viva Open Source
Defcon is close 2nd.
Insomnia gaming expo
VMworld , I'm looking towards the coming event here in the Philippines... thank you VMware Community...
Looking forward to see a gathering of techies.....
The parties are nice.
I had the opportunity to attend a few in the last couple of years... this 2016 VMworld will be my second and I could tell that this is my favourite one overall... but!... PA's IGNITE is very close!
I voted for VMworld but only so I can go to the cloudcred stand (and Turbonomic obviously) :-)
Vmug usercons are also great, free and incredible swag.
a lot of smart people
wish I can join the one in Barcelona
Fantastic opportunity to engage some of the brightest in the industry, with questions, comments and to do some strategic networking.
VMWorld is definitely first, but Amazon reinvent and Microsoft Ignite are close 2nds
Aside from VMworld, I also enjoy Nutanix .Next.
