How Do You Describe So Much Awesome? Cisco at VMworld 2012

August 22, 2012 - 1 Comment

Each time so many technologists gather in one place, there’s an embarrassment of riches: technology, demos, know-how. So many people to meet, so much going on, how does one cut through the noise and let everyone know? This year’s VMworld 2012 in San Francisco’s Moscone Center is shaping up to be just such an event.

Last year, we took you on a day to day journey with a series of videos. But 2012 is the year of the infographic! And what do engineers like more than free event t-shirts? Whiteboards!

Cisco's Activities at VMworld 2012: Whiteboard Edition

Just look for the #vBrownBag logo!

Just look for the #vBrownBag logo!

@ciscoDC is a proud sponsor of #vBrownBag this year. Known for their work in the virtualization space, a guide to all things training, we’ve included some great information on their USB key of awesome. The #vBrownBag crew will be out in force, and they’re easily identified. Remember, it’s all about the visuals. Visit the blog for complete details on the happenings with their crew. Great information, check it out.


Now we’ve covered sessions, social media activities, and sponsorships, what else? How about content? So many demos, so much to absorb. What better way than an infographic? Back to the drawing board, the literal drawing board, with tech cartoonist @gapingvoid — what does he have to say about it?

Try making  a QR code for the booth out of that! In the end, the only way to describe it, is to come to Cisco Booth 1213 and experience it for yourself. Take the #UCSChallenge, talk to the Cisco experts, experience the learning in the hands-on labs.

Whether you’re there IRL or enjoying the show from the comforts of wifi, follow @ciscoDC and #ciscovmw for livetweeting from key sessions, updates from roving reporters Josh Atwell and Scott Hanson, and whiteboard showdowns from industry leaders as part of Engineers Unplugged (like MTV Unplugged, but with whiteboards and tech rock stars). Like the CiscoDC Facebook page for insider pictures, caption challenges, and more.
