VTUG Summer Slam and Stuff
I have been working with the Virtualization Technology Users Group (VTUG) . VTUG is an independent virtualization users group with over 4,000 end user members that focuses on all platforms including ESX, Hyper-V, KVM and EC2. The 10th Annual VTUG Summer Slam event is taking place in Brunswick Maine and will have more than 1,000 IT professionals and over 50 vendors. Keynotes include technical evangelists from VMware and Microsoft. This is an excellent event and they end the day with a huge lobster bake that also includes ribs and chicken! And the live music is cool too.
VTUG is doing a pre-event boot camp the day before Summer Slam in Maine. The focus is on Hyper-V for the VMware expert. It is a hands-on lab and is about six hours long - so it will go in-depth. This is a first come, first serve opportunity. The boot camp is free so take advantage of it.
It is interesting how many storage vendors participate at Summer Slam. VTUG is running a program called "Bring Your Storage Peer". And if you do there are four chances to win some cool prizes. Learn more about the "Bring Your Storage Peer" program.
VTUG is branching out its events to other parts of the country with Silicon Valley Slam on August 1. It will take place at the DoubleTree in San Jose. VMware, Microsoft and Amazon will be speaking at this event.
VTUG is now conducting webcast events as well. The first upcoming webcast is Hyper-V for the VMware Expert. Let's face it, Hyper-V is becoming a contender in the virtualization arena. The more you know about it the better it is for you.
All of these events are free to IT end users.
I'll be at all them - I hope to see you there.
