The summer’s most popular virtualization conference will take place by the Bay!!. After a number of years in good old Las Vegas, VMware is taking VMworld back to San Francisco and the newly renovated Moscone Center. I have to admit the break from the great Las Vegas lights and fun is well overdue.

I will be participating on a couple of panel session covering a number of topics with regards to data management, self-service, automation, multi-clouds, service providers, work life balance, and more.

Below you’ll find the sessions name and details, so feel free to add then to your event calendar and schedule if they are of interest. One of the the sessions was highlighted as one of VMworld 2019 top 25 sessions to attend to by Duncan Epping from Yellow-Bricks.

Work-Life Balance is it really that simple? [PD3489PUS]
Feeling tired? Often Upset? Challenges with your colleagues? Too much time away from home? Join us for a panel discussion among five active VMware community members discussing the trials and tribulations of the modern day IT workplace from long hours to intense travel to continuing education requirements. The discussion will include the things that companies have done to help alleviate the pressures as well as those things that have caused even more challenges talking from both a work/life balance and a technological perspective. Starting with a list of the top 5 sources of IT burnout as found in a recent study the panelist will address each one from their own experience as well as a thorough Q&A from the audience.
