Swiss German VMUG – May 2020 Event CANCELED

We put the safety and health of our members above all else. As such, we are closely monitoring the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) across the globe.

Due to the current situation around Corona we discussed the topic with our Swiss French colleagues and also with the speakers. Unfortunately, we have to cancel this event.

Currently, we don’t plan any events at least in the first half of this year, due to the Corona situation.

Please don’t register anymore for this event. An informational email will be sent as soon as possible.

Thank you!


We’re back! Yes, it was a long time, and we are really sorry about this! But we’re back now, and we will start the year with an awesome VMUG meeting!

Today we proudly announce our first VMUG meeting for this year! And we’re starting with a bombshell! In January this year, we were contacted by our friends from the Swiss-French VMUG. They told us that they are in contact with a VMware specialist to have him on their next VMUG meeting. And thanks to our friends we’re happy to welcome Cormac Hogan from VMware as our special guest for our first VMUG meeting this year!

Also a long-time supporter of our VMUG, a good friend, and a community guru, we also welcome Dennis Zimmer to our first VMUG meeting this year!
