London VMUG 17th July 2014 – Last Chance to Register

Just a quick reminder that this is your last chance to register for this quarters London VMUG. For those of you who haven’t previously attended a VMUG, it’s a brilliant way to meet other people in our industry, watch a load of community and vendor sessions, and generally steep yourself into the techie melting pot.

As it happens, at this VMUG I will be presenting my own session, Noddy’s Guide to Storage Design – Storage 101, where I go through the basics of storage design decisions and impacts along with a few tips I’ve picked up over the years. I plan to potentially follow this up by turning it into a series of blog posts. At time of writing I have over 40 slides in my deck and that’s just the basics. My biggest issue is probably not lack of content, so I need to work on cutting it down before Thursday for sure!

Storage is complex… who knew?!

Fortunately Mike Laverick has kindly agreed to FeedForward with me and I’ll be running through my initial draft with him this evening!

Of the other sessions, the ones I’m particularly looking forward to are:

  • When Did Turkeys Ever Vote for Christmas? – Mike Laverick, VMware
  • Vendors: VMware Vision and Strategy – Martyn Storey, VMware
  • Hitting the Big Red Button with vCO and SRM – Sam McGeown

VMUG Agenda

If you are coming along, I highly recommend getting there early. Doors open from 8.30 and it’s a great time to catch up with other attendees. At the end of the day there is of course the most excellent London #vBeers at the Pavilion End! If you haven’t been before, just hang about by the lifts and tag along with a regular…

If you do see me on the day (I’m 6’7” so you cant miss me), please feel free to come and say hi!
