VMworld 2012: Day one

Today was a day full of waiting, but thankfully enough to see and great weather conditions!

After arriving at the Barcelona airport, me and my colleagues had to wait for transport, but it never came. We waited for about 1 hour until we decided to contact both travel agency and transport company but it appears that the transport agency was a ‘fake’ and scammed more people. The cab outside did it’s job for a small price, so hey, no hard feelings =)

The hotel is wonderful! We are staying in the Renaissance Barcelona Fira Hotel with a swimming pool on the roof (26th floor) with an incredible view on Barcelona, large room with modern bathroom, livingroom and kingsize bed. Again, a great view!

In the afternoon we headed for the VMworld 2012 registration and got our badges, receiving our goodie bags and continuing for some Hands-On Labs and the keynote where we are told that VMware is aiming for partners more then ever and they need us to sell more software. With all the numbers going on on the main screens I remembered why I chose to be a technician and not a salesman =D

This VMworld is going to concentrate around the vCloud products and setting up a modern infrastructure with plenty ways to keep you VMs up and running. Good to know that most of the sessions I registered on are about this subject, so I’ll be inside the clouds in no time!

But for now; some sleep is needed to prepare myself for the coming days!

Thanks for reading.
