VMware Explore happening NOW!

vBrownBag TechTalk schedule at VMworld USA

Two weeks and counting. The day is nearly upon us. This year there is a change, the Hang Space is now called the VMvillage. Everything else that you know and love about TechTalks will be back. Some of your favourite presenters with unvarnished truth about making IT work.

Huge thanks to our sponsors: Datrium, Veeam, Ansible by RedHat, and Cisco for making this all possible. Thanks also to the VMware Community team who support us with the venue.

If you cannot make it to VMworld, or the VMvillage, then you can watch the TechTalks live here. As soon as we get the videos on YouTube the schedule below will get links, so you can watch anything you missed.

It isn’t too late to propose a TechTalk, as long as there is space in the schedule you can still present, just fill out this form.
