Musing of Rodos , VMworld 2009 Videos & Summaries


Rodney Haywood @ put together some Video’s on VMworld 2009. I will outline them below.

VMworld 2009 Day 1 Video Summary

“Each day I hope do give a brief video summary giving my thoughts and experiences on the day. Here is todays.

Of course I have posted some separate videos you can see on the site as well.
Hopefully the lack of sleep will not get to me and I can actually throw one of these out a day. I don’t have my Mac as I could not extract it from my kids at home so I am stuck with the features of the software on my Windows XP machine and the Flip Cemera software. So apologies in advance for the lack of interesting music, boring transitions and simplistic textual intros. Maybe one day I will get a Mac for my work machine.
Big day tomorrow, its now around 3am and I have to be up at 6:30am to make the keynotes. No rest for this blogger. If only my hotel had faster bandwidth!”


VMworld 2009 Day 2 Video Summary

VMworld 2009 Day 1 Video Summary from Rodney Haywood on Vimeo.

“Here is my day to summary. This will be the longest one of the week I suspect.


"Hopefully the lighting is better. There is some general video at the end of the goings on of the day.
P.S. Thanks for the fantastic bandwidth available over at VMworld, 6 minute upload compared to the estimated 3.5 hours at my hotel! However its taken a while for Vimeo to process it. Hopefully tomorrow will be smoother.”

VMorld Live Interview : Moving to the cloud and SpringSource

“Recorded a interview with Dr John Troyer from VMware in the recording booth at VMworld today.

Here is the video below.”


VMworld 2009 Day 3 Video Summary

“Here is my summary video for Day 3.



It is a shame that I was not able to post this until now. I stayed up till 3am to record it but the poor internet quality of my hotel meant I could not upload it until after lunch when I finally got access to some decent bandwidth (400K a sec rocked). Still for those who were not there hopefully its helpful.
I have learnt a lot of things not to do in recording these this year, so thats a great outcome in itself. Next time can be better!”



Vmworld 2009 Hello Freedom


“Well here is my video for VMworld 2009 Hello Freedom.
After a week of very little sleep due to the long video blogs I did (hey we all have to try new things) I thought I would end the week with something funny. Okay and attempt to be funny.
Unfortunatley you need to know the people to get the joke at the end but this is to say thinks to the VMware online community that were so welcoming, warm and kind with their words this week. You are a great bunch of people who are keen to share your knowledge and a friendly hello.
Also a great thanks to the VMware communities team, especially John Troyer, for their commitment and passion.
Guys, this one is for you! I hope you get a laugh.
P.S. Thanks to all the participants for being good sports and contributing to something that sounded crazy at the time. Sorry to all those great people that I did not run into today and did not make it in as a result, I am thinking of you Dr Troyer!
P.P.S. If you are reading this through RSS the video may not appear, you might have to click through to see it.”



Thanks Rodos for taking the time to share your experiences at VMworld, it makes those of us that couldn’t make the event, feel as where were attending!

VMworld 2009, John Troyer & VMworld Ustream Video


John Troyer did a great job on ustream and the VMworld Channel.

I kept the order of original upload date.
