A VMworld Public Service Announcement from your favorite #vExpert! ;) (Book your hotel NOW)

January 28th, 2013
by Christopher Kusek (PKGuild)

It’s the End of January, 2013 is finally here, so the first thing on your mind should obviously be… VMWORLD!!!

For those of you who attended last year, you might recall OMG I HAVE TO TAKE A TAXI, BART OR CAR FROM THE SFO AIRPORT?!?!

Yea, that’s right. Because you didn’t book your hotel soon enough.  It’s not your fault that San Francisco effectively has like, 3 hotels which aren’t an arm and a leg expensive.   But that doesn’t mean you need to suffer through this indignation again!   Do what *most* of us truthfully did…   We booked our hotels MONTHS and MONTHS in advance!   Here are a few cute little facts:

  • Hotels unlike Airline tickets can be booked out a bazillion years in advance
  • Hotels unlike Airline tickets can be CANCELLED as close as up to 24hrs in advance without paying any fees
  • Hotels will often fill up the “Cheap” rooms as they’re sold on a tiered basis, so you can lock in a good room for a good rate EARLY.

So what does this all mean?


Register for VMworld 2013 now!!!

I mean, you can pre-register if you want as well, but I know some of you won’t know what your training budget looks like, sometimes upwards of DAYS before you’re supposed to attend.   So I encourage you… book your walking distance hotel now from the Moscone instead of booking it days before-hand with a 30-60 minute commute staying at the SFO Airport or somewhere else horribly ridiculous.

And worst case scenario, you don’t get your budget? Well, then just cancel your hotel room and it goes back into the pool, no harm no foul.

Pro-Tip: I’ve actually found that sometimes using the VMworld sanctioned hotel code/etc to actually make the room MORE Expensive, so don’t use that as an excuse.   Get ahead of this before you regret it later :)

    Thanks for discussing your ideas listed here. The other matter is that if a problem appears with a computer system motherboard, people should not go ahead and take risk regarding repairing the item themselves because if it is not done properly it can lead to permanent damage to all the laptop. In most cases, it is safe to approach any dealer of that laptop with the repair of that motherboard. They’ve technicians that have an know-how in dealing with laptop computer motherboard issues and can carry out the right diagnosis and perform repairs.

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    Thanks for your blog post. What I would like to bring up is that computer memory ought to be purchased in case your computer still can’t cope with anything you do by using it. One can put in two random access memory boards of 1GB each, as an illustration, but not certainly one of 1GB and one having 2GB. One should look for the company’s documentation for own PC to make certain what type of storage is needed.
