VMworld 2012 public voting is now up, here’s a few really cool ones that should get your vote!

If you want to have your say in the types of sessions that will be running this year at VMworld, now is the time that you should head on over to vmworld.com, log in (or register for no cost if you haven’t done so already) and vote for the sessions that you think are interesting.

Yes, public voting is a part of getting sessions approved, believe it or not. It’s not just a jury who decides who can present their material this time around. It’s kinda like the ESC voting if you think about it 🙂

Anyway, there are A TON of great sessions out there (I heard a total of over 650 sessions were posted), and I’d just like to headlight a few that I think are worth noting in three different areas where I’ve also submitted:
