Session JSON Files

For those interested in extracting more information from the raw data, I have also published a snapshot of the VMworld sessions in JSON.

Here's quick PowerShell snippet on how you might retrieve some of the details:

$json = Get-Content -Raw -Path ./cloud_infrastructure.json | ConvertFrom-Json

$session_example = $json.PresentationDetailsList[0]

Session View Statistics

One thing I had noticed on the VMworld site when watching a session is that it includes a "Views" count. I thought it would be cool to share some of the statistics on top views from our customers/partners and what sessions they found interesting. Below are the results for the Top 10 for all VMworld sessions as well as Top 10 for each category. I will periodically update the site with the latest snapshot of the data.
