VMware Explore 2023: Diving into the Future of VMware in the Heart of Barcelona
Barcelona, a city steeped in history and pulsating with energy, is once again the host for one of the most exciting events in the IT world: VMware Explore 2023.
VMware Explore is a platform where IT professionals come together to discover the latest developments in virtualization, cloud computing, End-User Computing, and digital transformation. This blog takes you through the highlights of VMware Explore 2023.
On Tuesday, we kicked off Explore with the General Session, during which some notable figures from VMware were on stage, such as Raghu Raghuram, Sumit Dhawan, Chris Wolf, and Purnima Padmanabhan. They discussed the new and upcoming features. If you'd like to watch the General Session, you can find it on-demand here.
The session highlights for me are related to my experience with End User Computing (EUC). Here are the sessions that I found most interesting:

VMware Explore provides a holistic environment for personal development by offering learning opportunities, networking, skill development, and a platform for community engagement. Taking advantage of these aspects can contribute significantly to both your professional and personal growth.
This is what I have accomplished with the support of the ITQ Camera Team, including Sjoerd and Rick, as well as Johan and Edwin. Taking this step was significant for my personal growth, and I have recorded three live YouTube sessions that you can now watch on-demand:
Interview with Sander Noordijk about the DaaS Readiness Assessment.
Interview with Pim van de Vis about the VMware Explore announcements.
Interview with Matt Lagguth about DaaS readiness assessment importance.
I like to thank Sander, Pim, and Matt for the opportunity to interview them.
It was great to see and speak to all the vendors add the conference and all of the EUC enthusiasts.
What a great city Barcelona is early day before the start of Explore you get a enjoy a view like this.

I want to take a moment to express my gratitude to ITQ for an incredible week. It exceeded my expectations, and it's truly a privilege to be part of the ITQ team. The positive and energizing atmosphere at ITQ makes me enthusiastic.
