North East VMUG - Thursday 25th February

It's that time again, the next North East VMware User Group is happening on Thursday 25th February and boy do we have a great line up of speakers for you.  Joe Baguley (twitter) Chief Technical Officer for EMEA will be delivering a keynote session and Duncan Epping (blog | twitter) will be talking about Virtual SAN.  We have two community sessions at the event, one from Matthew Bunce (blog | twitter) and Marco Van Baggum (blog | twitter) on NSX in the real world and another from Kyle Jenner (blog | twitter) on the importance of a VDI assessment for an accurate design and ultimately a successful project.  We have some great prizes to give away but you have to be there during the draw to win and then onto vBeers afterwards.
