Wow! These VMUGs come around quickly. Good job I enjoy them!
I mentioned in my review of the UKVMUG (3rd November 2011) that the date for the next event was January 26th. That hasn’t changed, but now the agenda is set:
|Time||Track A||Track B||Square Room|
|10:00 – 10:15||Welcome|
|10:15 – 11:00||Intelligent Application Awareness in VMware Environments – Lorenzo Galelli, Symantec|
|11:00 – 11:45||Would you like fries with your VM? – Chris Kranz|
|11:45 – 12:15||Break in Thames Suite|
|12:15 – 13:00||How to build 1000 hosts in 10 minutes with Auto Deploy – Alan Renouf, VMware||End User Computing : Today & Tomorrow – Simon Richardson, VMware||Embotics Lab 1 (bring your own laptop)|
|13:00 – 14:00||Lunch|

|17:00 – 17:15||Close|
As is usually the case, there will be drinks afterwards at the “Pavilion End”.
Yes, that’s right, I am presenting for a change. That does mean that I’ve got to start putting a slide deck together over Christmas but at least it might stop me eating too many mince pies!
This time around the event will be sponsored by Symantec, NimbleStorage, Xangati and Embotics.
Register at the myvmug site here. I look forward to meeting lots of people there.
