UKVMUG–Nov 3rd 2011

For the first time ever there will be a UK wide VMUG and I have to say the organisers have certainly made sure it will be one that is not to be forgotten.  With VMware super stars like Duncan Epping, Lee Dilworth and Cormac Hogan being flown in to give some great sessions and the usual UK crowd it should be a great event.

Also available throughout the day will be a PowerCLI Hands on Lab, come to learn how to get started with PowerCLI, take PowerCLI to the next level or even just to say hi and chat with me and Jonathan Medd about PowerShell, PowerCLI or anything else on your mind.
