First and foremost, I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the following for allowing me to participate in Tech Field Day at VMworld:
- Stephen Foskett
- Tom Hollingsworth
- Rich Stroffolino
- Ben Gage
- Tech Field Day
Stephen and his team were kind enough to offer me an opportunity to join the Monday presentations that included StorageCraft and NetApp. The event was well organized from beginning to end which included registration, communication, agenda, etc. Basically, they covered everything quite well.
I did not know what to expect and probably felt slightly overwhelmed by the experience leading into VMworld which included arriving in Vegas from the east coast a few hours before the TFD event began but my goal was to remain committed to the event and at the end of the day, none of us really expect to get any sleep while in Vegas.
The interactions between the delegates and the presenters was very straightforward and I have to give the presenters a lot of credit for remaining composed while fielding and answering questions left and right.
I’ve always said it takes a lot of courage to present in front of a group of people but to answer questions as they are being thrown at you in a short period of time is pretty darn impressive.

The event was live streamed but I would highly recommend subscribing to their YouTube channel to catch up on past events as well. If Vimeo is preferred, you can also locate videos here.
