I’m a Delegate at Tech Field Day Extra at VMworld US 2015

I’m excited to announce that I am a Delegate for Tech Field Day Extra at VMworld US 2015

I will be on Monday’s Delegate Panel.

 

What is Tech Field Day?

 

http://techfieldday.com/about/

Our Field Day events bring together innovative IT product vendors and independent thought leaders to share information and opinions in a presentation and discussion format. Independent bloggers, speakers, freelance writers, and podcasters have a public presence that has immense influence on the ways that products and companies are perceived and by IT practitioners. The world of media has changed, with social media and blogging gaining special importance. Our Field Day is an opportunity for tech companies and independent writers to meet, update and discuss products and form new communications.

We provide a valuable forum for engagement, education, hands-on experience, and feedback for vendors. And the attendees get access to the best information, high quality resources that lead to informed, more nuanced discussion about the marketplace.

I have been lucky to been a part of Tech Field Day for a couple years, and find it an increasingly valuable event to be part of.

Below is the Agenda for Tech Field Day Extra at VMworld US 2015

The last couple months for me have been a blur. I am amazed that the time is upon us for Virtualization Field Day 2 – Silicon Valley

I jumped at the chance to be on a Tech Field Day with a Virtualzation Focus. Anyone who knows me, knows my passion for any the Technology. Well, if you don’t know, Virtualization is my favorite. Heck, I’ll all out rant about it.
