VMUG UserCon – Sydney and Melbourne Events are Huge This Year!

Last year I claimed that the Melbourne VMUG Usercon was the “Best Virtualisation Event Outside of VMworld!” …that was a big statement if ever there was one however, fast forward a year and credit goes to the VMUG steering committee’s of both Sydney and Melbourne as it seems they have bettered themselves this time around for the 2017 editions. Both events happen a couple of days apart from each other on the 21st and 23rd of March and both are filled with quality content, quality presenters and a great community feel.

This will be my fourth Melbourne UserCon and my second Sydney UserCon…The last couple of years I have attended the event in Melbourne I have taken away a lot of great technical and non-technical knowledge back home with me and with keynote speakers the likes of no less than Duncan Epping and Amy Lewis together with other industry superstars William LamAlan Renouf, Emad Younis, Josh Atwell and other great local presenters I expect the same for the 2017 editions.

With what is the strongest lineup in the Usercon’s history, it promises to be a worthwhile event to attend…if you haven’t already registered head to the registration pages below and sign up.

Both the Sydney and Melbourne Agenda’s are jam packed with virtualisation goodness and it’s actually hard to attend everything of interest with schedule conflicts happening throughout the day…the agenda’s are not yet 100% completed on the sites but make you check back later in the week to get details on who is presenting what and when.

Veeam is sponsoring both events as Platinum level sponsors and I’ll be presenting a session on Availability made easy for your vSphere infrastructure where I’ll go through some tips and tricks about getting the most out of Veeam and vSphere as well as talk about how we extend availability into the cloud.

If you are in Sydney or Melbourne next week try and get down to The Westin and The Crown Casino respectively to participate, learn and contribute and hopefully we can catch up for a drink.
