VMworld is finally here, with the opening reception getting underway in just a couple of hours. For some of us, it started even earlier, as VMware Education offered about ten classes (at a discount) that ran over the weekend. I just finished a pre-VMworld What’s New class (with 29 students!) which was a lot of fun, and now am looking forward to the rest of the week. I’ve already found a number of excellent technical sessions using the VMworld Schedule Builder (available at VMworld’s web site after you login), that should be especially interesting. Make sure you sign up for sessions soon, if you haven’t already done so, as many fill up fast.
I did want to note a couple of quick certification-related items. First, don’t forget that you can take certification exams onsite here in the Exam Center, which is sponsored by Fast Lane. I gave you all the details in my last post. You can take the exams for half off, but did you also know that you can register for an exam while onsite at VMworld to get the 50% discount, but take your exam later? Stop by the Certification Lounge to get your Pearson Vue discount code, starting on Monday. This is a different code than the one you use for onsite exams on the Pearson Vue VMworld page.
Secondly, in a previous post a couple of months ago, I mentioned that the VCAP exam was sold out onsite at VMworld. However, I checked with VMware today and that is not actually true! So if you’re ready for your VCAP, come by the Certification Lounge and register to take it this week, or later. It’s your choice, but you get the discount either way.
Have a great week, and check back here often for updates from Fast Lane at VMworld 2012.
