This year I will be doing my maiden VMworld Europe (a big thanks to my employer Qwise). I can say I am really looking forward to this. At VMworld I will be doing session, meeting people, do exams, visit some vendors and I will be tweeting and blogging around to place (and yes also some party attending).
You can find me on the blogger (http://www.vmworld.com/community/vmworldblogs/#feed) and twitter (subscribe at https://twitter.com/VMworld/europe-contributors) lists.
