Well I had an amazing time at Technology UG in Manchester this week. Speaking was fun and hearing from the other speakers and generally interacting with the guests was a great experience. I would happily take another days annual leave to attend or speak at one again, maybe next time work will let me go without having to use a days holiday though!
One thing I know I need to work on is my speaking speed – I tend to talk very fast a lot of the time as it is so presenting didn’t help initially. Once I remembered I need to slow down I relaxed a little and that helped I think. Anyway it was a great day and hopefully what I said in my presentation and my responses to questions helped others or at least gave them a perspective on my experiences over the past 5 years running VMware ESXi and Hyper-V as production hypervisors. I can highly recommend the event as a wonderful opportunity to learn and grow so please check them out and if you are able to get to any of the meetings do so!
