Today we proudly announce our first VMUG meeting for this year! And we’re starting with a bombshell! In November last year we were contacted by our friends from the Swiss French VMUG. They told us that they are talking with some VMware specialists to have them on their next VMUG meeting. And thanks to our friends we’re happy to welcome Duncan Epping and Frank Denneman from VMware as our special guests for our first VMUG meeting this year!
