I received and email on Thursday at 1:30 am that registration for labs and sessions opened for registered attendees. There were issues with the site and I had to contact VMworld support. After the correction, I was able to resister for labs and sessions...
Does anyone have an ETA when they will open it? This is total crap and BS, complete amateur hour!
Very dissapointing for VMWare to have such a poor website for registration.
If anyone can shed any light on how to register for sessions, that'd be great. Fustrating that VMware can't seem to get this stuff straight. I see where I can see the specific times for each session (in the content catalog, hit the "Day" tab). But I still don't see how I'm supposed to register for stuff.
Registering for sessions in 2006 was a big pain but this time around my experience is even worse because of the communication which at this point is non-existant and the FAQ area is abiguous at best.
Again, if anyone can provide a little help it would be a of great benefit. I'll call the support contact numbers later today but haven't the time right now to be on the phone.
This sounds similar to my problem last Thursday.
I could only view sessions and labs.
On the left side of the schedule page, there was a "contact VMware"
I had to email them and they corrected it by setting up access rights.
Now, when I go the site, I have a link that says "My Schedule" and I can add sessions and labs.
Last year I got in late, and all of the instructor labs were filled.
When I contacted registration here is what they said: "The scheduler builder is currently unavailable, but will go going live today. You should be receiving an email shortly with full instructions and the exact time the scheduler builder will be accessible for registration."
This is total B.S. Now what, I have to stay glued to this Damned website so I can TRY to get into the labs and sessions that have value for the thousands I'm spending to attend this TURD? VMWare is either so arrogant or clueless I can't believe it. I never in my life had to put up with the crap VMWare demands I put up with. Can someone post a phone number for these people, I can't even find that on this POS site.
I feel your pain! Last year, I missed the general email because it came in after I left work.
Next day, all of the labs were filled.
This year, I registered last week and somehow got the email to build a schedule early...after emailing vmworld support, finally got the schedule built...
The "ScheduleBuilder" piece is live for me now. Just registered for my 2 labs and thought I'd post this before registering for everything else.
Go here and login: http://vmworld.com/community/conferences/2009/schedulebuilder-login!input.jspa?src=EM_09Q3_VMW_OTHER_VMWORLD2009-SCHED-BLD-INV5&ossrc=EM_09Q3_VMW_OTHER_VMWORLD2009-SCHED-BLD-INV5
For me, "My Schedule" finally showed up on the left-hand side whereas before it wasn't. The site is actually responding very well for me (my previous registration experience for VMworld was that registrants nearly brought the event management company's servers down). So far the experience is much better (only wish communication was better).
I registered months ago for this conference. Nothing was ever said that your money only bought you the opportunity to fight the other attendees for space. If the content I paid to get is unavailable due to VMWare's ineptness\uncaring I'll be speaking with my legal department, not my wallet. Goes without saying I won't be subjecting any of my staff to this if VMWare doesn't get off their high horse.
