Clearpath Solutions Group VMworld Sessions – Vote Today

VMware’s VMworld 2012 conference is quickly approaching.  Early-bird registration ends on the 8th, so be sure to register now.  And remember, VMware User Group (VMUG) Advantage subscribers get an $100 discount on admission to VMworld (plus other great benefits)!

One of the cool things about the show is that attendees have input into the content to be presented by voting for the sessions they most want to have in the schedule.  Voting is open through June 8th – click here to vote.  The very talented VMware engineers at Clearpath Solutions Group (of which I am privileged to be a part) submitted several session proposals on a variety of topics.  If these proposals peak your interest, I hope you’ll consider giving us the thumbs-up vote so that the session can be included in the schedule.
