VMworld Europe 2008 Timetable

For those attending VMworld Europe 2008 next week, it is a hard time selecting relevant talks and presentations from the list provided by VMware. It's a shame no more user-friendly overview is provided. Here's a screenshot of what it looks like:

Rene has done a good job converting the flat list to a table in Excel.

I did not yet find this served my own purpose, trying to get my schedule right for next week. So I created my own Excel planning file. It consists of a planning sheet, the resulting schedule and also a sheet with an overview of the amount of clones I need of myself. I did a first scan of the topics, and the resulting table looks like this:

MMMmmm, it seems I will have to cut hard in my selection...

Anyway, if you're interested in the Excel (2007) file, it's rough, undocumented, but you can download it here: ProgramVMworldEurope2008.xlsx

Some notes perhaps for those interested: the column 'Attend?' should be filled in with 'Y' or nothing. If 'Y' it means you want to attend. The column with '#' stands for the amount of sessions with the same topic over the three days. In the last sheet, you get an overview of these topics with the dates. In order to update the tables for the planning sheet and the issues, just press CTRL-ALT-F5.
