Time to sharpen the presentation skills… 2 VMUG Presentations in 2 weeks…

Working as a solutions architect, I get to do presentations on a regular basis for lunch and learns or small groups.  In two weeks though I will have to step up my game.  First is the Washington DC VMware User Group.  Bookended by Tintri and Veeam, two of the hottest players in the virtualization space I had to come up with a pretty good topic for everyone to enjoy.  I am going with Enterprise Application Presentation.  Might not sound overly interesting, but I get to do a comparison between Citrix Xenapp and the new VMware Horizon App Manager.  With a limited presentation time I plan to limit it to presenting applications to machines onsite in an enterprise domain.  By no means the full scope of either product but one of the largest use cases.  Make sure to come by if you will be in DC on January 17th.  We will be at the Washington Nationals Stadium.

Then comes the second presentation.  Over the last year or so I have gotten to know a few of the guys in the New England and have been selected to present for their VMUG also two days later.  Will be the same presentation (although probably a little more polished, sorry DC) The New England Winter Warmer is one of the largest VMUG meeting in the country.  Being held at Gillette Stadium, home of the Patriots, this full day event can bring upwards of 1100 virtualization professionals.  I will be in one of the breakout sessions.

Hope to see many of you there.  If we have not met face to face, make sure to come say hi.

For those of you who are used to coming to my blog to read about technology and virtualization this post is going to a slight change but one I felt was worth writing.  If this is your first time reading my blog, thank you and I welcome your comments.

Almost three years ago my wife and I moved into one of the most drastically changed areas of Washington DC and without a doubt it was the best decision we have made.  We live in an area that has been referred to by alot of names but the most common seem to be Capital Riverfront or Navy Yard-Ballpark.   An area between Capital Hill and the Anacostia River and home to the Washington Nationals Stadium, the area has gone from one that was full of strip clubs and drug deals to home to young professionals and young families in new high-rise apartment and condo buildings.  We have some of the newest and best parks in DC and are seeing restaurants and stores slowly come into the area.  Sounds great right?
