Posted by on October 17, 2013 in VMUG | 0 comments

With the Chicago VMUG User Conference coming up on October 22nd, I thought that a list of some of sessions that caught my eye. The day will hold over 35 breakout sessions and 2 larger keynotes for the day. The sessions are split between VMware sessions and vendor sessions. You can see the whole agenda here.

I have broken my list up between VMware and Vendor sessions, since they will not overlap you can attend the top ones from each category. I have ranked them in order of my interest, but you may see other sessions on the agenda that are of more interest to you.
