It's always an exciting time as we start looking at the end of summer and the approach of VMworld. This year will be 10 years since I went to my first VMworld. I've seen VMworld grow massive over the years and shift venues back and forth from San Francisco to Vegas, back to SF, then back to Vegas. I know I'll always miss Cannes, although the Palais des Festivals wasn't the roomiest venue. The show is now tougher for me as my kids are now going to school and I have to miss the first day of the year.
