What is a Virtualization Summer Camp? 

As the name implies it is a place to come and have fun with your peers learning about virtualization technologies. The format of the event will be "Bar Camp" style.  If you have ever been to a Bar Camp, you already know they are awesome! If you have never been to one, you definitely do not want to miss this one. Because of the style, it is also vital that you show up on time.   Basically, after a short Keynote presentation on virtualization and overview of the format,  we all write down what we want to have presentations on.  We solicit speakers from the audience to moderate those discussions and we all get educated on what we (the audience) wants to get educated on.   We have the capacity for about a dozen different sessions so you will certainly get your money's worth and then some {it's free}.  If you miss this event, you will be kicking yourself later.  If you make the event, you will be thanking whomever invited you!  We will be asking people to take notes so if you have a laptop, please bring it and help us out! 


Let's go ahead and get the process started.  Tell us what you want to learn about at our FIRST SUMMER CAMP! Enter Your Topic Idea!(6 questions, none required)
