    Do any of you attend the likes of Dockercon, Amazon reinvent, VMworld?

    I do occasionally and always find them useful. Not to mention the cool side of it such as this year, if you were a vExpert you could attend a BBQ in a Pinball museum which looked totally ace. Snoop Dogg and a few others also played at the event.

    I've heard similar of the Amazon event with people being taken for rides in Teslas.

    I just wondered what your opinions were. Did you find it useful? Any that you would recommend or avoid? Any good stories from your time there?

    I'll be working at VMworld in Barcelona, November 4th to 8th so if any Certforums people are going drop me a message and ill see you there

    Which ones did you go to mate? Any good? I find it quite common that many companies don't send people to these events. And of course contractors have to lose pay if they pay for themselves (potentially)
