Myrtle Beach VMWare User Group Meeting August 6

On Thursday August 6th, there will be the inaugural meeting of the Myrtle Beach VMWare User Group. It will be from noon to 2 PM and will be held at Barefoot Landing in North Myrtle Beach. I’m considering taking a long lunch and going to it. It is (arguably) relevant to my day job and I am a VMWare user of Fusion on my MacBook. There will at the very least be free food, there will be some value to me personally and professionally but most of all, I want to encourage there existing things like this in Myrtle Beach. I don’t want people to get the idea that it is useless to hold technical meetings in this area. I’m on the fence now but I’m tilting towards going.

    Be careful what you wish for. Soon the Powers that Be will be wringing their hands over people drinking* in parking lots, public nerdity, and clogged access to wireless hotspots.

    And sure it’s relevant to your day job. I won’t cite my reasons here because I don’t recall if the information came from private conversation or something you posted. Wouldn’t VMWare help manage one of the major sources of heartburn in your shop?

    You should go! If there were one in my city I’d go, even just to check it out once.

    Software like VMWare are only gonna get more commercial penetration and consumer and why not learn a little while maybe making new friends.

    I got a local Mac User Group in Birmingham in the UK and really enjoy it. Rather annoyed that I only recently found out there was one where I used to live!

    Hugh, We use VMWare in my workplace.

    Dom, that’s my thinking to. The downside is that it runs kind of late and is way across town so it will take a bite out of the day. On the other hand, we are in the lull point of a release cycle so maybe it will work out.

    Cryptic comment for the day: you never want to know how your sausage is made.
