VMUG UserCon(s) 2023

I’ve been a bit slack and neglected to post this sooner, but the Sydney and Melbourne VMUG UserCon events are coming up in less than a month. If you’re unfamiliar with UserCon, it’s an event put on by VMUG where you can:

  • Participate in technical deep dives led by a variety of industry experts;
  • Put your skills to the test during breakout sessions and hands-on labs;
  • Make meaningful connections with like-minded IT professionals;
  • Learn about the latest products and solutions from trusted VMUG partners;
  • Win Cool SWAG & prizes;

And a whole bunch more. The good news is that Chris McCain is doing the morning and closing keynote at both events, and there’s a heavy focus on security. In addition to that, there are some great speakers presenting from both VMware and the community. If you’re heading to the Sydney event, I recommend getting along to hear my friend Tony Williamson talking about real world service provider networking leveraging NSX.

The Melbourne event is being held on March 14, 2023 at Crown Melbourne (map), while the Sydney event is being held on March 16, 2023 at the Sofitel (map). You can view the full agenda and register for the Melbourne event here, and details of the Sydney event can be found here. If you have the time and are in the area, I heartily recommend registering and attending – these promise to be excellent events.

The Australia VMUG UserCon 2021 is happening on the line on Thursday 15th July. There’s currently a call for community sessions underway. If you’d like to present, you can fill out this form. You’ll need to hurry up though, as sessions must be submitted no later than Sunday 30th May 2021.

Having presented at one of these events in the past, I can tell you that it’s a great way to share your ideas with a large number of people. If you don’t want to present, but just want to attend, you can find the registration link here.

Get Along To The Australian VMUG UserCons in 2017

The Sydney and Melbourne VMUG UserCons are now less than a month away. If you’re in the area (or like to travel), I suggest you sign up. You can register for the Melbourne event here and the Sydney one here.

Both events will feature Duncan Epping and Amy Lewis as speakers, with a host of other VMware and community speakers providing insights and information on a range of topics. It’s a fantastic opportunity to learn something new, have a bite to eat and network with a bunch of people who are into the same thing as you are. The Sydney event will be held on March 21st at the Westin and the Melbourne event is being held on the 23rd at the Crowne. Thanks to the program sponsors VMware, and platinum sponsors Veeam (for Sydney and Melbourne) and Zerto (for Melbourne).

Sydney VMUG UserCon is coming


The Sydney VMUG UserCon is being held at the Intercontinental Sydney (117 Macquarie Street, Sydney – directions here) on Tuesday 23 February 2016 from 8:45 a.m. – 6:15 p.m. If you’re in the area or can get yourself there I urge you to register now. The agenda is now online and the day promises to be a cracker. There’s a fantastic mix of partner and community content, and you should embrace any opportunity you get to hear Scott Lowe speak. Keith Townsend is delivering the closing keynote. I’ve been fortunate enough to spend time with Keith and can assure you that he has a whole lot of interesting stuff to say and is definitely worth seeing.
