The day started with the keynote by Carl with lots of coverages on cloud computing and what that means for VMware partners. Backed by virtualization, cloud computing brings in efficiency, agility and freedom of choice to the cloud adopters. It’s interesting to see that even CostcoConnection has an article about “computing in the cloud.”
After the keynote, I went to the self paced lab and then the Exhibit Hall. That is the most fun part for me to be in a VMware conference. I can see how our partners use our technologies and product, how they use our SDKs/APIs, what more they want from us in terms of partner enablement. You don’t normally see so many demos in time and have deep conversations face to face.
