I’m a regular presenter at VMworld and while not every session is recorded, I want to share my top sessions from San Francisco and Barcelona in 2015 and 2016. These sessions were fully booked during the event, so these are popular topics at VMworld! Also, having produced many technical deep-dive papers I share some of the technical deep-dive video guides I created for VMware End-User Computing.
