Wir sind im Herbst angelangt, und die grosse IT-Veranstaltung VMware Explore (ehemals VMworld) ging vor Kurzem in den USA über die Bühne. Im November können interessierte auch in Barcelona teilnehmen.

Diese Veranstaltung haben wir zum Anlass genommen um einen grossen Event unsererseits zu planen! Ziemlich genau zwischen den Events in den USA und Europa. Und wir dürfen eine der Koryphäen von VMware begrüssen: Cormac Hogan! Doch nicht nur er wird uns dieses Jahr beehren. Wir dürfen einen weiteren Gast willkommen heissen: Johan van Amersfoort!
