To finish these posts about VMworld 2018 Europe, I am going to summarize day 3 and day 4 together as day 4 is usually the less busy of all of them (people usually leave in the morning).
On day 3 (Wednesday), I rest like 5-6 hours (pretty normal to me) after spending some part of the night at the Veeam Party. I made it to be at the enclosure at 8:30 AM because at 9:00 it will start the second general session.
I grabbed some coffee and go to the correspondent Hall, the same as the day before.
2nd General Session
For me it was a weaker session than on the previous day but, I was great.
Here you have a link to the Youtube video of the session: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5W_8t6F_yY0
In the previous post, I forgot to mention the VMware ESXi on a Raspberry PI as a prototype, that Pat and Ray showed us, really cool.
vCommunity, vStreetfighter and more
I must say that I had like 4 sessions scheduled on Wednesday and I only went to a couple of those. The most of the time I was hanging with people from the vCommunity and playing also I played some Street Fighter V in the gaming area. We have a group for that, check out #vstreetfighter for some tweets on Twitter and join us!
First, let me show us a couple of fights that I had against Bilal Ahmed (I lost and I don’t how yet…). You can check here that Gregg Robertson offered a challenge against me at the gaming area.

I can’t be happier to be able to meet these persons and more that I didn’t mention or couldn’t take a photo. When you are there, the time passes by quick and because of this, I didn’t go to some sessions (I knew that I could watch them later at home).
I enjoyed having dinner with Chris a couple of times, hanging a lot in the Solutions Exchange area or with Jorge de la Cruz to everywhere.
Thank you to Virtual Speaking Podcast for the Headphones, I was the lucky winner!
I was there about an hour or so and there I went with Jorge de la Cruz to have dinner in a nice restaurant.
There was plenty of fast food: hamburgers, nachos, seafood, candy and more… so, if you want to feel full, you can’t go there!
Also, a Rolling Stones tribute band was there and they played really well!
And that’s all! Last post of the year obviously because it’s the last day.
P.S. : I forgot to mention I took a photo with someone… Rodney Mullen!
