UK VMware Users Conference – Thursday 3rd November 2011

This week see’s the first ever UK VMware Users Conference.  Although here in the UK we have a couple of regional (ie: Northern and Southern) VMUGs this is the first large scale national VMware Users Conference to take place.  As you’d imagine there are a number of useful and informative sessions being offered from the likes of Duncan Epping and Lee Dillworth along with many other talented folk including Mr PowerCLI, Alan Renouf, who will be running a PowerCLI Hands on Lab, with Jonathan Medd also being around, to answer any PowerCLI questions you may have.

This UK VMware Users Conference promises to be a good one so with no cost to attend so there is little excuse not to attend – of course, assuming you’re based in the UK and not snowed under with work.  Winking smile  For some more information, including local hotels, click here.
