I was fortunate to spend the last couple days at the Charlotte VMware User Summit. For those of you not familar, the User Summits or Conferences are larger regional and all day conferences for the VMware Users Group. I happen to be one of the leaders for the Washington DC group, and have been heavily involved in the Potomac Regional VMware User Conference that is coming up next week. If you are in the area and have not registered, then you should using this link http://www.vmug.com/p/cm/ld/fid=1742. These summits are a great way to interact both professionally and often socially with some of the brightest and most innovative minds in the virtualization community.

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.
