Early in September of 2015 I had the fortune of attending VMworld for the last time at the Moscone center. I also had the great fortune to sit down with Mark Browne (@dathbrun) and co-host a few podcasts under the Tech sElect name for the EMC Elect. I complied the three that I co-hosted into this episode. First is a chat with Jonathan Frappier (@jfrappier) about vBrownBag and how community enables education. Next is a chat with Patrick Redknap (@patrickredknap) about community and analysts. Finally we talked with Gina Minks (@gminks) about Spanning and her role as product manager.
