Reason 1: Hands-on labs guided workshops
At VMworld you have to option to experience the latest and greatest VMware solutions. General Pass attendees have access to the Hands-On Labs Interactive Simulations, however Premiers Pass holders can experience a true interactive experience through Hands-On Labs Guided Workshops.
These Guided Workshops are presented by VMware product experts who develop the lab content and provide an engaging live instructional environment. Live training, live labs, ask questions play around with VMware solutions – it’s all part of the Hands-On Labs Guided Workshops. This year I will personally be acting as a lab proctor…so maybe we will virtually meet at VMworld 2020!
