2020 has of course been a very different year for most of us and for those of us in the technology industry one major impact has been on the tech community. For many of us the community is one of our core career tenants for us as we develop, it is where we learn and where we build relationships and friendships.

One of the cornerstone events of the tech community has and continues to be VMworld, which has for a long time not only been a major technical event but has been one of the most significant to the tech community. As VMworld 2020 approaches, like most of the major conferences this year, it will only happen online and while this is a great opportunity for many to attend for the first time, it also means that we will lose that chance for the tech community to be brought together.

However, is there an opportunity to do both? To provide a great technical event for those attending while still provide a valuable community experience? On this weeks show we take a look at just that as I’m joined by VMware content strategist and founder of the excellent community initiative The Tech Level Up Project, Yadin Porter De León as we discuss what VMworld 2020 has to offer.

Join us as we discuss.

  • Inclusion in numbers
  • Community side channels
  • The no-risk chance to try out VMworld
  • A chance to pick and mix
  • “the future forward” them
  • A chance to “really deliver for the widest audience”
  • The Tech Level Up Project
  • Community and your career
  • The vTrailmap – signposting your way into the vCommunity

VMworld remains a key part of the technology calendar and this year, while different, still offers a great chance to learn and make new community connections. Thanks to the work Yadin has done and his enthusiasm for the tech community, the vTrialMap provides a great resource to guide you through this big and valuable community.
