That… Could Be A Problem…

VMworld Session Selection…

I must start off by saying there is an amazing amount of knowledge and a great selection of sessions at VMworld this year. I'm sure the labs will be pretty spectacular as well, so definitely leave some room to take advantage of those.

With that said, I've spent quite a bit of time trying to whittle down the sessions into something that resembles a schedule.
