What a crazy week, VMworld. Many announcements by many different vendors and of course a kazillion blog posts. I picked a few which stood out to me and which are worth reading.

The US version of the hackathon was a big success, and I expect nothing less in EMEA to be honest. Read Alan’s article to get a feeling / idea around what it was like and make sure to sign up if you have a good idea, or want to join an existing team!
