In my previous post I wrote about the lows in my lead up to VMworld 2018. After making a few necessary changes to my travel itinerary I was now ready to board the plane for the long haul to Las Vegas.
The first highlight of my trip was seeing some familiar faces upon arrival to my hotel in Las Vegas. The 6 weeks leading up to this point had been tough, and to finally reach Las Vegas and VMworld was a huge relief. Catching up with the Aussie vMafia crew, Matt Allford, Mark Ukotic & Anthony Spiteri, shortly after arrival really put me at ease and allowed me to put the events of the last 6 weeks out of mind, even if it were just for a short period of time. Thanks guys for all your support.
This year was my first opportunity to attend the VMworld Hackathon. I had always wanted to see what people got up to at this event however with some big names headlining some big parties, I was still in two minds as to whether I was really going to commit to it.
In the end, given that I was still recovering from a heavy night of drinking from the night before, I thought it would be best to go easy and to use the opportunity to meet some new people in a far more relaxed atmosphere.
