If you are planning your schedule of sessions and labs for VMworld 2014, you are among hundreds or thousands of other attendees doing the same.  As you login to Schedule Builder and start building your schedule, or browse through Content Catalog, be sure to take the time to research the session details, speaker info, and time/location. NOTE: Remember to leave enough time between sessions to walk or travel between locations.  

Session Guidance
Utilize online networking with other attendees, past alumni and Partners for suggested sessions and labs to attend. Leverage the VMworld community for recommendations, but ultimately choose the best sessions to attend for yourself, based on your learning needs and goals. Here are a few posts from VMware and the community on suggested sessions:
Yellow Bricks | Chris Wolf | VirtualGeek | VMware VSAN Team | VMware PowerCLI Team | VMware Cloud Mgmt Team | VMware EUC Team

Session & Lab Hashtags
Utilize online networking with other attendees and alumni for any suggestions or recommendations they may have. You can also view conversations and comments for specific sessions or labs Twitter, using hashtags available for each. The SessionID or LabID is the actual Hashtag on Twitter (SessionID BCO1152 would be #BCO1152). You will find some tweets already posted, others just beginning.  If you are attending or involved in any of these sessions or labs, please start or expand this conversation by including the #VMworld hashtag for further reach.
