Well it’s 1232am Wednesday the 27th 2013 and I have been up since Tuesday the 26th 645am, roughly 18 hours, I just wanted to thank VMware for another wonderful day at PEX 2013, as well as provide a quick breakdown of tomorrow events and where they are.
So my day will start with breakfast with a co-worker at 8am, and then I will be catching the general session. Details below.
VMware’s Priorities Join Pat Gelsinger, VMware Chief Executive Officer to get insight into VMware’s top priorities for 2013 and his perspective on the value of partnering. Taking Charge in the New Era As customers embrace the cloud era, including a software-defined datacenter and the mobile workforce, VMware and its partners are increasingly benefiting from the associated revenue opportunities. VMware COO Carl Eschenbach will share insights relative to the company’s go-to-market strategy, optimized partner engagement, and focus areas that will help partners take charge and win big in 2013. The Happiness Advantage Most people believe that once they are successful, then they’ll be happy. But that formula for happiness is not only wrong, it’s backwards. Join former Harvard Researcher Shawn Achor to learn the science behind happiness and the clear link between being happy and being successful.
After the general session I will most likely sit the labs for most of the afternoon, the labs are a huge plus to PEX 2013 as you get to try out applications and software that you may have otherwise not known about. Once I am done with the labs I will most likely browse the vendor booths and meet up with my co-worker. Then at 7:30pm we have the Partner Appreciation Party which should be a blast… I cannot wait.
I should be twittering tomorrow so if you want to follow me please feel free. Here is my twitter handle natesimon89
