After running into some fun faces like Ray O'Ferrell (CTO), Jack McMichael (EUC SE), and Brian Davidson (PREM Sr. Mgr), I got to mingle with some TAM customers and discuss the SDDC Journey they're on.
VMware's booth (at the very back of Solution's Exchange) has an amazing setup with demos and experts to talk about VMware vision and to dig into the technical details of our solutions. Other than beer sleeves, the hand out of choice this year appears to be none other than the fidget spinner.
Tomorrow's General Session with Pat Gelsinger should be great. See you there!
