Wonderful documentary on Stephen Hawking

This is recommended for a rainy Sunday… The Irish comedian – and scientist – Dara O’Briain followed the world famous scientist Stephen Hawking in his daily life. We get some great glimpses of his work and family and also of his sense of humour, how his face literally lits up when he is laughing ! Dara questions him on his two marriages… And Stephen answers “Women are a mystery to me” and after a pause: “That is the fun”. Brilliant.

And if you still want proof of Professor Hawking’s sense of humour, here is the Little Britain sketch from Comic Relief:

My session on vROps 6 at #vmugbe tomorrow

I am happy that my session proposal got accepted last minute for the VMUG meeting tomorrow in Antwerpen. Here is the proposal:

vRealize Operations: A few ins and a lot of outs.

 vRealize Operations v6 has been out six months now. Apart from a name change, there have been a lot of changes under the hood and in the GUI and the product is rapidly evolving to a full management platform.

 In this session we will look at the new architecture and how to use it to your advantage. New dashboards and navigation are on the menu, as are smart alerts: we will spend a lot of time going over this new concept in vROps. And the icing on the cake is some API interaction, even from your iPad ! 

Expect some slides, a lot of talk and a lot of demo !

If you have not registered yet, you should really hurry to the VMUG website. There will be some rock stars presenting such as Joe Baguley, our EMEA CTO, and Scott Lowe, who came over especially from the NSBU Office of the CTO.
