I’m presenting at the London VMware User Group, 14 July 2011 – register now!

June 15th, 2011

The previous London VMware User Group may still be fresh in your mind with a fantastic cloud focused day but the next one is already planned and scheduled for the 14th July so off with your head if you can’t make it!

This VMUG follows the great format of the previous cloud gathering, starting at 10am, features two tracks, multiple sponsors (Arista Networks, Embotics and Vision Solutions), a VMware vCenter Operations focused lab and a VMware staffed Genius Bar to get all your questions answered.

I have the honour of presenting again at one of the afternoon sessions: “Thinking, Building & Scripting Globally” which will hopefully leave you with some practical ideas and solutions for designing and building a standardised global infrastructure, ready for your private cloud…all with PowerCLI.

If you haven’t attended a VMUG before I strongly recommend you plan it into your work schedule. Although a day out of the office may be seen as being on a “jolly”, a VMUG should be seen as an extremely useful training & education day. This isn’t a vendor driven trade show set up to sell to you but a gathering of VMware users and experts with as many solutions as there are problems.

The value of the presentations and labs is obvious but there’s also a huge amount of information to be gathered from other attendees. Meet some people, ask some questions, use the community and you’ll be amazed at how quickly you can find an answer to that burning issue that’s been plaguing you for weeks. It all ends with arguably the best networking opportunity possible, an evening in the pub where you can really get the low down on all things VMware.

    I have no chance…I’m just the warm-up act anyway!
