VMware and VMworld is obviously very successful. It appears VMworld is suffering from growing pains. With over 17,000 attendees this year, I’ve experienced the VMworld growing pains first hand. Many of my chosen sessions have been full, leaving me a choice of rushing to another session or taking my chances of eventually getting in. Both are a dice roll, one includes some cardio. Myself and a handful of others end up waiting outside in a line. When one person leaves the session, one of us enters. Today I went with cardio and still ended up in a line twice!
I have seen what appears to be the VMware person who schedules sessions a few times now. This leads me to believe VMware is aware of the overflow of interested people. I have tried to sell my spot in line for $20-$100 with no luck. People seem to think they have paid their due to sit down in a session, I agree.
VMware we love you. We just really want to hear what you have to say!
