My take on interesting sessions @VMworld Europe

Like most VMworld attendees I also have been busy building my session schedule. This can be a rather time consuming task. There are so many sessions to choose from, there is also the Solution Exchange, Hands On Labs (HOL), Certification possibilities and meeting up with peers at the Hang Space.
You can fill up your entire schedule with sessions, but that would leave you very limited time to engage any (or all) of the activities mentioned above. There are numerous blogs where the writer has presented it's "must see" sessions list for VMworld, although most of those lists refer to the US edition a lot of the sessions will also be presented in Europe. I suggest you look at some of those "must see" lists, mine is at the bottom of this post and make a selection out of the "must see" lists and the complete VMworld catalog taking in account your interests / work field.
After I would make a selection of session the you want to see live (sessions like "ask the experts" or "The vExpert Storage Game Show" you have see live because of the interactive nature of these sessions) and which you could optionally see later online.
When you make this selection it will free up time you can use to attend to the other activities as mentioned above.

My selection of "must see" sessions:

NET1743 - VMware NSX - A Technical Deep Dive
