Content Preparations for VMware Explore 2024

One of the highlights of my professional year, is the VMware Explore conference. A week of personal development, networking, presenting, and taking in the trends in IT for another year. VMware Explore gets me beyond excited, and preparing for the conferences (both US and EU) has already started. In this post, I’d like to share my content preparations for 2024, but I also like to share some video and podcast…

My session picks for VMware Explore 2022 in Barcelona

It’s nearing November, which it will be time for a lot of jamon, cerveza, amigos y amigas, and (of course) some knowledge sharing at VMware Explore 2022 in Barcelona! I’m really looking forward to the event and am really curious to see if it will differ from VMware Explore 2022 in the US (which was held a couple of weeks ago).

VMware Explore 2022 EUC Recap

VMware Explore 2022 in San Francisco is already a couple of weeks ago, but I’m still processing everything that happened at the very first edition of this rebranded/revamped/remarketed flagship event of VMware. The whole idea behind the rebranding is obviously because of the broader scope of solutions that VMware offers.

We quickly came to the conclusion that we all like to listen to podcasts and that podcasting in general was something we all liked to do. In the... Read more

I’m excited for VMworld 2021 and this is why!

While I’m writing this, It’s the final week of August, which meant that I normally would be attending VMworld 2021 in the US. Although it’s going to be another virtual edition this year, my week (like last week) was still mainly focused on VMworld. I got 4 sessions in the content catalog, which means that a lot of slides, demos, stories, etc needed to be created, rehearsed, and recorded before... Read more

In stores now: The VDI Design Guide Part II

The moment you all have been waiting for has finally come. After 10 months of regularly hiding in my man-cave, listening to EDM, and feeding my caffeine addiction, I can proudly announce that the result is finally available for everyone to enjoy. The original VDI Design Guide has a sequel. It’s not a revision of the first book, it’s a new book (which does lean on the first book). What... Read more

ITQ VDI Design Guide

Free VDI Design Guide eBook for everyone!

It’s been 2,5 years since the VDI Design Guide was launched. Thousands of people have been enjoying the book, and quite often I received tweets, emails, DMs, etc from VDI enthusiasts all around the world. Those messages explained how the book helped to design and build platforms that performed better with increased stability, scalability, and even with a lowered TCO. I like to keep those messages because they’re one of... Read more
