For anyone in my local area, I wanted to make sure to let you know that Wilmington, NC, area has a newly formed VMware Users Group. Their inaugural meeting will be March 25 at the North Carolina State Port Authority. The Port Authority will be presenting a case study of their VMware View (VDI) deployment. A senior sales engineer will also be presenting updates from VMworld Europe.
I’m very excited that a more local group is available to me and my co-workers and I look forward to participating as often as possible. For more information about this user group (or one in your area if you’re not in Myrtle Beach or Wilmington), go to: http://www.vmware.com/communities/content/vmug/ and click on events or local groups.
My boss, a co-worker and I attended the Carolina’s Summit in Charlotte, NC, last May and we were very impressed by the event. I received another announcement that this event will be held again this year on May 29. This is an all day thing with several session – a mini-VMworld if you will. I found last year to be very informative and helpful. Like last year, Mike Laverick with RTFM Education will be the guest speaker.
