What to expect during Virtualization Field Day 3
It’s a countdown of just over a week until the Tech Field Day – Virtualization Field Day 3 event that I will be attending as a delegate. Following in the footsteps of some powerful minds in virtualization and technology, I will be doing my best to bring all of my readers a first person view of the event and I hope to make this a fun and informative event for all involved.
Hosting Vendors of VFD3
This event has a strong field of presenting vendors as you can see from the even t page:
The schedule of the presentations will be updated shortly before the event so that you can see the calendar of sessions and you can even add it to your own calendar so you know exactly who is on during each session for extra convenience.
These session are extremely great because of the technical depth they can reach to. Each presenting vendor will be diving into their product with our delegates giving them a good mental workout with some deep questions to fully explore the products and how they fit against others in the industry, and how they can be great for any particular organization.

Making Tech Field Day fully interactive
One of the fantastic features of Tech Field Day events is that they are live streamed from the site (http://www.TechFieldDay.com) so not only can you follow along on Twitter using the hashtag #VFD3, but you can see the live activity while it is happening!
In fact, you can post questions yourself along the way also by Tweeting me (http://twitter.com/DiscoPosse) and I will present your questions to the vendors right from the delegate table.
Let’s treat this as our collective session and share in the opportunity together! Looking forward to the event and I encourage your questions as we go 🙂
Live Tweeting and Summary Blogs
With all the information coming from the presentations, I will be live Tweeting during the presentations and I hope to have a summary blog for the event days as we go. Given the intensity of the event and the volume of information, I will be playing it by ear as to when I post the summary. Rest assured that the info will be captured through the event day and as you will see from the times we are Tweeting, there is little rest time, but that is what makes the event so powerful and effective.
It’s going to feel a little like this:
As the videos are posted I will be sure to include embedded links for them so you may find that the blog posts are rather organic and adaptive during the event week.
Thanks go as always to Stephen Foskett and Tom Hollingsworth for their extensive effort to prepare the event and it is going to be a great time for all of us!
