Guys, it is with great joy that for the fourth time in a row, I will have the privilege of being present at VMworld! It has always been a professional goal to attend this event and I would like to tell you a little about my career in recent years. Until 2013 my career has always been focused on data storage and transportation. As I began to migrate this focus to VMware technologies and products, a huge window of opportunity opened up in my professional life.
I confess that it was a little late, but today I have no doubt that it was the best decision made. I went headfirst into this journey and were days and nights for months studying and conducting the most diverse laboratories and tests. I have never had a problem asking questions that to experienced people may seem simple but are fundamental to understanding any technology and sometimes people fail to ask for some kind of a shame.
This insistence and certain stubbornness led me to rapidly develop virtualization technologies and, in 2016 for the first time, I was awarded by the company I currently work for (IT-ONE) to represent the after-sales team at the event.
I remember that in this first year my focus was on sessions, sessions and more technical sessions. I filled my schedule until it didn’t fit anymore. I was very anxious to make the most of it and to bring knowledge to share and not to disappoint those who entrusted me with this mission. I even rescued here in my outlook my schedule for the event:
Was good? Sure, but it is in the coming years that I tell how to get more out of it!
For the record, some pictures of VMworld 2016, the first on my list!

In 2017 the focus was a little different. It was when I met Valdecir Carvalho (http://homelaber.com.br/) that was a great motivator and responsible for the growth of VMUG in Brazil and countless initiatives of the local community! From then on, I began to realize that being on VMworld was much more than technical sessions. It was from this meeting that I applied to be a VMUG Leader of the community of Minas Gerais and started to focus on relationships during the event.

In the year 2018, already with our active VMUG I won a ticket for VMUG Leaders (VMUG Leader Pass) and this greatly facilitated my participation of the event since the ticket is very expensive for us who received in Real … That year I devoted part of my time to working at VMUG Booth and had the opportunity to interact with several other leaders and the focus was the relationship. Valdecir again introduced me to several people from the community and the social network was growing bigger and bigger! This was also my first participation as vExpert and I dedicated a lot to relate with the community! Amazing also because at the vExperts exclusive meeting, Pat Gelsinger dedicated part of his busy schedule to talk to us and render an exclusive photo!

VMworld is by far the largest virtualization and cloud computing event on the planet! The personal news for the 2019 edition is that I have a challenge, because I will have the mission to cover the event with a special blogger ticket (VMworld Blogger Pass) the goal is to bring daily content about the news through my Blog (in partnership with Thiago Caires and Priscilla Rega | http://www.itby3.com.br/) for the Brazilian community! The full list of this year’s official bloggers can be found at this site https://lnkd.in/dd2FAvz. We have excellent sources of information on this list with Brazilian beasts such as Ricardo Conzatti, Fernando Teixeira, Arles Sant Ana and Diego Oliveira! Do not lose!!!
