Alternatives to sessions: vLabs

Attending EMC World? What’s that the session you wanted to attend is full and you can’t get in? Don’t fret that as there is an alternative. The EMC vSpecialists have set up a massive onsite hands on lab.  I found myself in this very instance happen to me. I also remember a friend of mine telling me not to worry about the sessions as they are all offered online after EMC World is over.

You could ask why come to a conference and do labs?

Good question, this is easily answered by saying it’s not just the ability to test drive some products. The vSpecialist staff manning it are some of the brightest in the Industry and the are right there to help and answer questions as you take your lab. Now this to me is excellent!  Have you ever downloaded and tried a demo software and have a question and find yourself searching for hours online how to do something or need a question answered? I know I have and that frustrates me. The vSpecialists are right there to assist, not to mention the instructions are well documented.

This is great for EMC World attendees, we have great sessions and an alternative to those sessions with some great labs to ether substitute a session or just get better aquainted with some of the products. The vLabs rock, you can see the dedication that the vspecialist put into it and I know I enjoyed doing a few how about you?
