VMworld 2021 – Suggested Persona Based Sessions

There are many blog posts out there are going to suggest the best sessions to attend at VMworld.  As a different approach to this, one of my colleagues has made session suggestions based upon the type of persona you may have.  Thank you Lewis Bowman, I think that this is a great way to approach choosing your sessions.       […]
