vBrownBag Tech Talks
The vBrownBag crew will be producing TechTalks in the VMTN theatre at VMworld in both San Francisco and Barcelona
TechTalks are a 12 or 27-minute presentation by community members on subjects of interest to other members. An easy entry into conference speaking as the live audience is usually small.
TechTalks are listed in the Schedule Builder, then live streamed, video recorded, and published to YouTube.
We will have facilities to capture your slides and (Internet access willing) live demos using our Mac.
Presentations are kept brief to allow us to accept as many presenters as possible.
We expect to have more sessions proposed than we can accept, please only propose your one or two best topics.
Community sessions are educational, commercial and sales content may only be presented by sponsors,
In order to present you must be a registered attendee at VMworld USA or EMEA.
US session submissions are now closed, we are still accepting EMEA session proposals.
If your organization would like to sponsor the vBrownBag TechTalks then please contact
So we can contact you about scheduling, not shared with anyone
Optional, helps us promote your session
Optional, also for promotion
Title of your TechTalk
Keep this short and interesting, it is used in publicity and the schedule
A brief summary of what you will cover, we will publish this in Schedule Builder and with your video on YouTube. We also use this to choose sessions if we cannot accept every proposed session.
Is this a community session?
Yes. I will be presenting community education content and I am happy to have vBrownBag TechTalk sponsors logos on my recording.
No, this is a commercial session. I will present pre-sales content or I cannot have other company logos (potentially competitors) on the video.
How long do you need?
We usually make 4 TechTalks per hour, so you get 12 minutes on stage. We can push two slots together to give you 27 minutes on stage. Keep in mind that we like to give everyone a chance to present, 12 minute TechTalks are much preferred.
Keep it short, 12 minutes is enough (highest probability of session acceptance)
A little more time, 27 minutes
No way, I cannot fit it in 27 minutes, so I will not be presenting a TechTalk.
Which VMworld conference can you present the TechTalk at?
Let us know which conference(s) you will be at
VMworld USA only (sponsors only, community schedule full)
VMworld USA or EMEA, I will be at both
