So the next VMUG Danish edition is almost upon us, and if you haven’t registered already I can only urge you to do so at vmug.com/denmark
VMUG’s are the gathering of users of VMware from your local area, and once in a while we are hosting guest speakers like the superstars. This time the always interesting Duncan Epping and for the opening Keynote Kit Colbert has agreed to come and speak to us. The full agenda of speakers can be found here
As the name implies VMUG’s are for and by the users and as such you’re always encouraged to give a presentation of what you have done with VMware. And don’t be shy, no matter how small a solution you have and run, someone else at the usergroup has a similar setup. A lot of the users who attend have somewhere between 1 and 20 hosts, and most likely face a lot of the same challenges that you have.
At my current work I’m somewhat on the other end of that scale, owning a VMware platform that hosts around 25.000 VM’s. That sounds daunting, and there are some new learnings for VMware at scale, but at the core this is just numbers. Your basic VMware training/knowledge still comes in very handy.
Through the VMUGs I’ve gotten many new friends that share some of the same experiences that I’ve had. These friends that helped me at first when I was new to VMware and I have to agree this has helped me work wise as well. It was at similar usergroup I was approached with the position of my current job.
This time the VMUG will be held at the new Movie theatre at Fields Copenhagen, which offers multiple rooms for presentations. So you will have to the ability to choose between 25 different breakout sessions that are held throughout the day. After the closing reception, VEEAM has sponsored a viewing of Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi.
Hope to see you at VMUG!
