VMworld 2018 Europe is only a week away! And I wanted to explain you share expectations and information I found about. It will be my 1st time!
As you may know, VMworld Europe is located in Fira Barcelona between 5-8th of November. As it’s in Barcelona, I am able to assist without paying any trip (I live close to the city).
When: 5-8 November 2018
Where: Barcelona, Spain | Exact location: https://goo.gl/maps/eR8cFyow89q

A quick guide from VMware before going: https://blogs.vmware.com/vmworld/2018/07/vmworld-guide.html
At VMworld, there are a lot of events happening before, during and after. You can join them free or by invitation. Be quick to register as some events will close earlier…
All events (parties, meetings, etc.):
I will be attending vBreakfast: http://www.vbrain.info/2018/10/14/vmworld-emea-2018-vbreakfast-2018-edition/
Also, I’ll be at VMFest on Wednesday and maybe other parties but I can’t assure anything.
I am going every day except for Thursday that I’ll leave before 1 PM.
My schedule is built with sessions, workshops, parties (just a couple) and obviously a couple of hours of free time, to network and do whatever I want (also relax, as it seems that can be exhausting). Remember that all sessions will be recorded so if you can’t attend it, you can watch it later.
About the parties, I won’t be able to stay too late because I need to come back home and we have more days to enjoy VMworld.
If you want to talk or something (like play some video games), you can find me on Twitter (I am really active). I’ll be open to everyone in the community!
Even I know I am not a famous guy, (and don’t pretend to be it), talking with new people can be satisfying and it’s always great to meet someone new. If you are shy you could try to engage someone on Twitter and let him/her know that you are there!
As it is my 1st time I can’t give any advice on this, you should check other blogs for that.
P.S. I wanted to meet especially (among other people) Ariel (@arielsanchezmora) but it couldn’t be as he can’t assist.
See you there and enjoy Barcelona!
