Everybody’s getting ready for VMworld 2012, and the Everything VMware at EMC Community is no different. The webcasts we have coming up for August cover some really great topics — and I’m not just saying that because I’m one of the featured speakers this month…
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 August, their brief descriptions, and links to register for the webcasts are listed below:
