VMworld 2015 US General sessions

VMworld 2015
During VMworld US 2015 there were three general sessions. The first and second general session were presented by VMware employees and contained the announcements made by VMware during this VMworld.

The third general session, as always, contained three TED talks. This year all of the talks were about the brains.

This blog post gives you embedded links to the first and second general session. Because the video recording of the third general session was not put online, I embedded previous recordings of the speakers, containing the same content as was presented during the VMworld general session.
