Viva La Barcelona
This Year thanks to the company I work for I was able to attend VMworld 2014 in Barcelona. I arrived to Barcelona Yesterday with my colleague and I was welcomed by gorgeous weather (+25 Celsius) and really nice hotel Hotel Expo Barcelona.
I registered Today and i received a lot off items:
- Refer a friend – 25 Euro gift card
- A lot of flyers from vendors
Here are some pictures from airport and Fira Barcelona Gran Via where VMworld will take place.

My expectations from VMworld 2014
Besides sessions I will focus on speaking with vendors about latest trends in IT, I will definitely meet vExperts and VCDX. I will skip Hands on Labs because later on all of them will be available online and this is waste of valuable time.
Besides that I will go to three different parties.
- Monday 13.10.2014 – PernixData Party
- Tuesday 14.10.2014 – Veeam Party
- Wednesday 15.10.2014 – VMworld Party

My experience and skills has been proven by leading vendor certifications like VMware Certified Advanced Professional 5 – Data Center Administration, VMware Certified Advanced Professional 5 – Data Center Design, VMware Certified Professional 6 - Data Center Virtualization, VMware Certified Professional 6 - Network Virtualization, Microsoft MCITP Server Administrator, ITIL V3, VMware vExpert 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 Award.
