Just over a week until the UK VMUG 2016. This will be my first year in attendance and after a really good VMworld Barcelona I’m looking forward to it. Whilst only a single day (if you excluded the vCurry the night before) I am hoping it will be successful in capturing the essence of VMworld.

There seemed to be a big focus on VMware User Group in the VMware EMEA Solution Exchange this year, both around promotion of the “free to join” standard membership and the “pay for” VMUG Advantage membership. Personally, this is my second year as a VMUG Advantage Member and the discounts on Exams and VMworld attendance has basically paid for the membership. Albeit when there are no more exams to do, I’m sure it will start costing me money… wait… when is there never any VMware exams to do?

There is a great agenda of sessions in the schedule so make sure you register and come along. Previous Key Notes from @JoeBaguley i’ve seen on playback have always been a good watch. Not to mention there will be probably some pretty nifty swag left over from VMworld and also a few prizes from the sponsors!

It will be good chance to catch up with fellow community members, the folks from @LonVMUG, as well as current and ex-colleagues.

Be there or be somewhere else less interesting…
