Gatherings

This year I don’t know if it is just me, or are there more gatherings put together than years past.

Below is the list of gatherings I will attempt to attend. I didn’t just pick the best parties, I picked the ones that relate to my job. It’s a great chance to meet IT professionals dealing with the same problems and solutions as myself.

If you have not signed up for any after hour events have a look at this. http://www.vmworld.com/community/gatherings 

Some of the parties are invite only, contact your vendors and see if they are having any, and get on the list. Things are pretty full at this point.
