For years Fred Hofer has been organizing the vBreakfast for VMworld EMEA across the street of the Fira in a very nice place. A big thank you to Fred to do this every year!! Due to the mess this world currently is in we couldn’t do it in person this year and we moved virtual. Big thanks to Runecast for organizing the virtual space we could use but sadly we had to do it without the vWorldfamous Grumpy Waiter. I really like the way it was setup with separate tables and everything. The only issue was that it seemed to use whatever Microphone, speaker and webcam that where configured in Chrome and switching was almost impossible.
During this meeting we came up with the idea to organize a monthly virtual vBreakfast for EMEA. Kev Johnson offered to do it again on the site that Runecast used for this but I think it would be more flexible if we used something like zoom. Luckily I can use a paid license so it’s no problem to make this a 2 hour long come and go whenever you like session. The talk can be tech, it can be non-tech whatever you like!
Every Last Friday of the month (yes we’ll move the december one!)
7.30am UK time to 9.00 (8.30 Amsterdam to 10.00, 9.30 Israel time to 11.00, you get what I am saying)
How do I attend?
Drop me an email at vbreakfastemea at gmail.com and I will forward you the invite
But I don’t live in EMEA can I still attend?
Hell yeah, I don’t give a flying F..K where you are from, everyone is welcome and the more the better!
I don’t use VMware but Nutanix or Hyper-V or Citrix?
Didn’t I just say everyone is welcome? Yes I also don’t care what hypervisor or EUC platform you use!
What do you talk about?
The Question is: what do we NOT talk about? Sometimes it’s tech, sometimes its the upcoming weekend. How to become a vExpert etc etc.
I work for company XYZ and want to sponsor this!
I think the only way of sponsoring that could work is if you organize a real breakfast for everyone that signs up. If you are prepared to do that we won’t offer more in return than a mention and a thank you as this is an organized unstructured meeting to meetup with friends.
