Our yearly local conference is a great opportunity to follow business and technical tracks, talk to partners and connect with your favourite VMware people ! There is no better way to quickly get information on new products, directions and generally what is brewing in the VMware community here.
We have one event for BeLux and one for the Netherlands. The first one will take place on May 22 in the extraordinary location of Dolce La Hulpe, for oldies like me the old IBM site in the splendid wooded area near Brussels. You can register and get more info here. The second one will take place in ‘1931’ in Den Bosch, a great location we have used before, on June 11. Register here. If you read this post and are interested in another location in EMEA, consult our overview page.
Of course we will have technical sessions on cloud operations and management ! I hope to see you at one of these events !
My colleagues from Tech Marketing have done a tremendous, labour-intensive job and created a series of short video’s covering every aspect of vCloud Automation Center 6. We used these ourselves as prerequisite to an internal bootcamp.
The good news is that they are also avalaible for free on Youtube, so you can watch them absolutely anywhere. Most are only 8-10 minutes in length, so perfect for your commute (on public transport, not your car obviously).
Even better all these instructional videos are available in our Mobile Knowledge Portal on your iOS or Android device. What ?! You do not have this great utility yet ?? You never want to look up info in white papers or presentations, view videos and so on ? Please repent your sins and download now on appstore (this is the iPad version). More info and Android links on the portal.
There is also a Partner University Mobile app that VMware partners can use to take training anywhere, more info and download links here.
I think these utilities are not used enough, I think I will blog separately about them.
Did not know this myself, but Pablo Roesch pointed out that there is a test on the NEE page where you can test your connection for the Hands-On Labs: http://labs.hol.vmware.com/speed-test
This is what it looks like from my home office today, now that I upgraded to a brand new TP-Link router with wired gbit connection !
