OK so you have seen a ton of pictures people post from previous VMWorld conferences, lamenting that it is an online event this year… Well the folks at Orbital Jigsaw have made a big effort to make it more of a community event with live corona-proof interactions!
Their Discord Server will be running a free community event, featuring all tracks, with Watch Parties, BoF Roundtables, and much more, for both days of VMworld in all three time zones. They have been working with the VMWorld event team and the vExperts amongst others.
I will be hanging out in the #Europe #vExperts and #Multi-cloud channels for sure and wherever else time permitting! If you want to chat with me directly there are meeting rooms available, just like the real VMworld, minus the sore feet and queues for lunch!
I am only a user promoting this great effort here. If you want to read more, here is the original blogpost. You can find a link there to sign up. To join the party, this is the address of the Orbital Jigsaw server.
I think Discord is fast becoming the communications platform of choice, I am part of a few servers already. I am a big fan.
