First VMUG of the year*. That has a nice sound to it. Full of promises for lots of good events to come.
The lovely folks who organise the London VMUG look to be putting on a super first event for 2014 and I’m looking forward to it. As well as having a distinctly “cloudy” flavour to it, there’s a series of lightning talks on home labs scheduled. I know that the committee have been debating a trial of this format for a while now because I’ve suggested it a time or two myself. It works very well at CloudCamp (which, coincidentally, is on the same day but starting at 6:30pm – register for it here if you’re interested) and I hope it will fit in very nicely here too.
