VMworld is all about education, collaboration and networking. Therefore, we want to make sure you are given every opportunity to get the very most out of the event – even if you can’t attend the full conference.

 

The week prior VMworld San Francisco, August 22 – 26, VMware Education has organized very special delivery of our most popular technical courses. Not only are the courses 25% off the regular price, they all come with a FREE exam voucher – respective to the course taken – they also come with 30 days or 30 hours of FREE extended access to our new technology that allows lab environments and content to be run in our cloud! Not only will you have access – you will be among the first!

 

Pre-Conference Training Comes with Extended Access to our NEW Virtual Labs!

 

VMware Education prides itself on spending over 50% of a student’s time with hands-on lab exercises for most of our courses to provide real, practical work in using the products and features. Most of our customers, however, do not have lab environments or dedicated non-production servers to review lab content from class.

 

With VMware’s cloud architecture and expertise, we will be offering lab environments and content running in our cloud without the need of any additional software installed locally. You will have access to our enterprise level virtualization technology and products without the need of expensive hardware or equipment. All done through your browser from any operating system!

Want to be among the first to get your hands on this exciting platform? Register for and attend a pre-conference training session! The courses are open to the public – but you do need to create a VMworld account. Simply:

1.       Find the course you want to attend
2.       Click “Register now” in the upper right-hand corner
3.       Create a VMworld account or login to your existing account
4.       Once at Step 4 in registration process, scroll to bottom of the page to add your pre-conference training
5.       Check out and you are done!

 

See you in San Francisco!

Again this year, attendees must pre-register for sessions. Without pre-registration, you will not be guaranteed a seat in any breakout sessions.

 

If you are registered for VMworld US, view a full listing of sessions, organize your days, and log-in to your VMworld account to sign-up for the sessions you want to attend. Most sessions will be repeated at least once and we will be adding additional sessions based on popularity, so if it is full, check back.

 

If you are not yet registered, what are you waiting for? Register now and build your schedule to master the new cloud landscape.

 

During VMworld, you will be able to add a session to your schedule up to an hour prior to the start. Session rooms will open approximately 25 minutes to 3 minutes before the start of a session. Only attendees who have pre-registered for the breakout session will be allowed in the room. There will not be a stand-by line, so please make sure to register for the sessions you plan on attending.

The VMworld 2012 Hands-on Labs team has been working feverishly to prepare great content for this year's conference. There is some exciting news to share including an expanded lab catalog, a modular content approach and new ways to take labs.

The lab catalog has grown this year to include topics across the entire cloud spectrum. You will interact with the latest versions of VMware's software solutions in cloud Infrastructure, operations, end-user computing and applications. From vSphere and vCloud Director to vFabric; from View and vCOps to Socialcast and Zimbra; you will have the chance to experience VMware products that are new to you and see them in action, solving real-world problems.

Have you found it challenging, in the past, to carve out an hour and a half from your busy VMworld schedule to take a lab? This year we are making two important changes that will make it easier to fit the Hands-on Labs into your schedule. First, each lab topic can be completed in 60 minutes or less. While we are retaining the successful scenario-based approach from last year, the content is more succinct and will allow you to learn the key takeaways in less time.

We are also excited to introduce the concept of Lightning Labs at VMworld 2012. Some lab topics will be broken into smaller 15 or 30 minute modules to make the Hands-on Labs fit better into your schedule. If you only have 15 minutes before lunch, you can drop in, take a Lightning Lab and get a complete story in a bite-sized format. You can come back later and complete the other modules in the same lab topic or move on to other topics as you see fit. It is our hope that Lightning Labs will make the entire Hands-on Labs content catalog more flexible and accessible to all VMworld 2012 attendees.

For the first time, at VMworld 2012, you can bring your own device (BYOD) to the Hands-on Labs. The BYOD delivery model will demonstrate a new way to access and complete Hands-on Lab content on your own tablet or laptop. A separate area will be provided where you will connect to wireless, login to the portal and take labs from your own device. Please be sure to bring your gear with you so that you can try out the new site.

We hope that you will join us this year at the VMworld 2012 Hands-on Labs. There is new content to be discovered and easier ways to get at it.

Register to attend VMworld and stop by to see us!
