Partner Exchange Day 1: PTAB

Yesterday was the first day of VMware Partner Exchange, and was lucking enough to be invited to join in on the Partner Technical Advisory Board (PTAB).  Obviously I can’t go into too much detail, but I can tell you that there were about 30 or so of us in a room together for about 13 hours straight.  I left with a headache, but I’m not sure if that was because of the fact the room was 60F, getting 4 hours of sleep, intensity of content and discussion, or the uncomfortable chair that started killing my back after about 8 hours.

Overall, it was a great experience.  It was a series of presentations that generated a lot of great discussions and introduced us to some of VMware’s future products and features.  They even had a couple of presenters that would throw out ideas just to see if it was a feature we thought was worth developing.  Meeting some of the elites within the partner community was definitely a highlight as well.

I’m really hoping to be honored with a request at VMWorld.  Special thanks to Sean and Don at VMware for nominating me and Danny for selecting me for this great opportunity.
