    Hi All

    Just wondered if any of you attend any sort of regular forum, event, presentation, get together? I've been attending VMUGs(VMware User Group) for a while now and presented at one last year. I'm based in the North West of England so go to the Manchester VMUG. It would be great to see any of you there. I'm not sure if Microsoft, Redhat or Citrix etc have something simlar

    Thanks
    JK

    I used to attend the Northants IT Managers meets once a term (every 6-8 weeks), this is where the IT managers in Northamptonshire used to get together to share experiences, technician presentations, other presentations (eg professional associations, etc) and to network. But it kinda stopped due to various issues. Then there's the BETT show once a year (they have alot of vendors there including MS)... Last but not least, I try to get to the Microsoft meetings down in London, managed last year, hopefully will go this year - but we'll see...

    But now a days, it's more of the online ones that I attend when I have time...

    That's a good shout Ken. I've just registered for todays Migrating workloads to Azure call at 10:30 to see what these are like. There's a Server 2019 session there but it's onsite and when I'm on leave

    I started going to a Developers meetup, but it was a lot of travel and waiting around and the talks were highly variable quality so I stopped going.

    So now I just go to usual AA and Aspergers Monthly...
