I travel a lot, but most of it is in the USA and Europe. That all changes this year, as I’ve been invited to give keynote speeches at the Melbourne and Sydney VMware User Conference events! I’m really looking forward to seeing Australia, meeting up with great friends there, and giving some all-new session talks!
Joining me at the Sydney and Melbourne VMUG User Conferences are Alastair Cooke and Mike Laverick, two great folks I’ve always enjoyed spending time with. Between the three of us, we ought to really entertain the locals with our accents if not our expertise!
Sydney VMUG User Conference, Tuesday February 5
My keynote, entitled “Virtualization is a Stack of Lies” will open the User Conference at 9:15 AM. This is the latest iteration of a talk I’ve been working on for a few years, focusing on the layers of simplification, misdirection, and straight-out lies that make up our virtual world. Hopefully I’ll be recovered by then from the three days-long flights it’ll take to get there!
I’ll also likely meet up with techie friends in the Sydney area on Monday and Tuesday evening. I’m hoping I can get Simon Sharwood, Kurt Bales, Rodney Haywood, and the rest to join me for a pint and show me the town!
If you’re local to the Sydney area, please consider coming to the VMUG conference, my session, and joining us in the evening!
Melbourne VMUG User Conference, Thursday February 7
My presentation time is not yet confirmed, but my topic is the same, “Virtualization is a Stack of Lies”. I promise it will still be good, even if it’s repeated from Sydney.
Once again, Melburnians, please join me at the VMUG and our after-hours hangouts!
I love my (non) job. I get to go to excellent events like these VMUG User Conferences and mingle with the excellent folks there in amazing places like Sydney and Melbourne! I can’t wait to set foot in Australia!
