I may have a new job, but I’ll be staying on as the Community Manager for the Everything VMware at EMC site. It’s great to get to continue working with both the EMC VMware Affinity Team and the EMC Community Network Team in my new role.
Since I’m in the Community Manager role, I thought I should point out that the EMC Solutions for VMware webcast series continues, bringing you a new topic every Thursday.
One of the great things about this series is that every webcast is recorded and then made available for on-demand viewing. As such, you may find it worth your while to register for a webcast you’re interested in even if you can’t attend it live. Folks who register will get email with a link to the recording as soon as it’s posted.
The webcasts run on Thursdays at 8:00 PDT, 11:00EDT, 15:00 UTC. The topics for May, there brief descriptions, and links to register for the webcasts are listed below:
