I will keep this post short and to the point, and will do my best to try not to sound too sycophantic!
I just wanted to publicly thank Alaric Davies, Jane Rimmer, and Stu Thompson for their years of hard work and service to the London and UK VMUGs and all of their members (and of course, not forgetting Simon Gallagher who is staying on to steer the ship). Were it not for a chance meeting with Mr Davies at a tech event in Leeds some years ago, I personally would know a lot less, have met far fewer awesome people and be in a completely different place in my career right now.
The London and UK VMUGs have had a real impact on the careers of many people I know over the past few years and I hope they continue to do so for years to come!
So thank you very much all of you for your immense efforts and the hundreds of hours of your own time you have dedicated over the years…
If you want to get involved in the VMUG community as an attendee (and perhaps one day as a speaker), I strongly recommend popping along to your nearest meeting. You will definitely come away with a lot more than just the instructions on how to upgrade vSphere from 5.1 to 6.0! 😉
The next London VMUG is on the 14th of April at Tech UK, 10 Saint Bride Street, EC4A. I look forward to meeting you there!
