After (several months) the last CloudOps events, the CloudOps VMUG SIG will organize a new event with Platform9 about IT Management. Next CloudOps SIG Event: Platform9 Wednesday, December 10, 2014 – 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. (CT) Registration link
Today I’m attending at the Nordic VMUG User Conference (it must be the second or the third user conference of this group) that represent also my first VMUG User Conference outside Italy. Past year there were 470 attendees (623 registered) really a lot of people and, in fact, the Bella Center is used (the same used in VMworld EU editions in Copenhagen).
November will be a great month for VMUG User Conferences in Europe with three great events: UK VMUG User Conference – Tuesday, November 18, 2014 Nordic VMUG User Conference – Thursday, November 20, 2014 Germany VMUG User Conference – Tuesday, November 25, 2014
Today VMUG will launch the VMUG Engage, a new program (in a gamification form, like the CloudCred initiative) that allows to earn points every time you participate in the VMUG community. Whether you register for a User Conference, attend the Virtual Event, post in a discussion forum or connect with another user, you’re earning points!
The CloudOps VMUG SIG is working on the next events and on-line sessions. Do you have a nice idea, an interesting technology or example or would you like to hear about something special (of course CloudOps oriented)? Just fill this Call For Paper module with your idea and suggestions in order to help the CloudOps SIG team in building a rich agenda for the next months.
After the great success of the first Italian VMUG User Conference, there will be the second edition on May 7 2014 still in Milan but in a new location: the MiCo (MilanoFiera City). A VMUG User Conference is not your regular VMUG meeting, it’s a full blown conference, with separate tracks and prominent guest speakers. A good opportunity to learn more, share experiences, and make networking. And note that some sessions (we are trying to build an entire track) will also be in English, so this is not only for Italian people, but for all […]

The VMware Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are some special VMUG groups that differs from geographically local groups by this key points: are topic oriented (and not geo-localized), are globally (worlwide), are almost virtually (with limited face to face meeting) and are interactive at each level (learn from peers, partners but also from VMware). Within these SIGs, members can connect and collaborate through topic based global communities.
