vmworld-2013The VMworld 2013 is really close: date and places are know from several time, registrations are opened for both editions, content catalog has already been published and it’s live (both for US and EMEA edition).

As usual the question could be why attend… But probably the right question is why not attend? Why loose this important event?

The only “justifications” to miss this events is the lack of time, the focus on other technologies (but here you can find a lot not only related to VMware) and (partially) the lack of budget. But reason to attend are more!

And there are also some trick to attend: The Ultimate Guide to attending #VMworld 2013 – and on a budget!

First reason is that this year will be the 10th edition of VMworld: for 10 years VMworld has been the source for the knowledge and connections you need to leverage virtualization and cloud computing technologies in your business.

Other reasons are similar from the previous years (also the place are the same as the previous editions):

More interesting, this year, is the discount for certifications exams: 75% off! Exam Center hours (for the US edition): Sunday, August 25 – Thursday, August 29 10:00 AM – 6:00 PM.

There is also a video on why do you need to come to #VMworld 2013:

Finally there is, a usual, the “refer a friend” opportunity: you can register, and then refer a friend who also registers for #VMworld 2013 and you can get rewarded.
