NYCVMUG - October 2017 - Whiteboard Meeting

Hello NYC VMUG Members, Friends and Future Members,

We are happy to announce that we are hosting another VMUG Whiteboard Meeting! As this is our first post-VMworld Whiteboard Meeting, I'm sure there are going to be some awesome new topics and products discussed. As always, space is limited as these are smaller, more intimate events. The people involved in these meetings are always motivated and willing to learn AND teach. It's definitely worth your while to join in. Details can be found below. We're looking forward to seeing you there.

Here are the details:

  • Date: Thursday, October 19th, 2017, 6:15 PM
  • Location: Touro College - Executive Offices - 500 7th Avenue, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10018. The location is walking distance to Times Square, Penn Station and Port Authority, so transportation should not be an issue
  • Space is limited, first come, first served. Please register with @NScuola @wildcard78 or @nycvmug to be added to security list before 4pm on the day of the event

The following is a re-post from our previous meetings, but it all still applies :)

This is not a traditional VMUG meeting with a sponsor; it's really just a small room with two whiteboards and a TV to connect the laptop, where fellow VMware users can come and discuss ideas, projects, or whatever suits their fancy.

VMware User Group Whiteboard Meetings

Azarya Shaulov (@az_ny) has asked for permission to use rooms from work for smaller, non-sponsored whiteboard sessions in an informal setting. These are great for those studying for their VCP, VCAP and VCDX certifications, those who want to talk their VMware designs with peers, and to get more involved in the community and look for general help. They will be announced via the @nycvmug twitter handle - since they aren't sponsored there's really no requirement so we will try to have them monthly or every two weeks.

If you come, you will learn something, and meet someone, so it's a great opportunity. We have asked several of the VMUG members who have advanced certifications like VCP and VCAP to assist, in case there are people studying for the certifications who would like any tips or clarifications.

Once you register you will get the building security instructions. This event is free, but there is no sponsor. This means a couple of things;

  • there is no set agenda, we don't know at what time we will be finished, it will depend on your level of interest in the current conversation. You are free to leave if you got what you wanted
  • you can count that we will look for a burger/beer afterwards, but since we're each paying for our own stuff, don't expect a big party, just some guys that got together in a bar to keep talking!

We really look forward to seeing you there and making these a normal occurrence. The power of community is amazing, and all you have to do is show up and participate. Make new friends, get a question answered, help someone else!

Please remember this is a technical event for VMware users and administrators to "geek out", not a networking or recruiting type of meeting. If there is any question please reach out to @NScuola @wildcard78 or @nycvmug :)
