The VMUG leadership invited me to speak at the St. Louis VMUG Usercon on April 18, 2019, and share my presentation on How VMware Home Labs Can Improve Your Professional Growth and Career.
This would be my second time giving a public presentation, but I left The Denver VMUG UserCon with a certain charge, or a spring in my step as it were. I didn’t have a lot of time to prepare or to change up my presentation, remembering that I have a PSO customer that I need to take care of. I arrived a day early for the speaker dinner that was being put on by the St. Louis VMUG leadership.
Prior to the dinner, I was able to explore the historical, and picturesque city of St. Charles.
The next day, we all converged on the convention center for the St. Louis UserCon. This way to success!
Seeing your name as a speaker amongst a list of people you’ve looked forward to meeting, have met, or follow on social media, certainly is humbling.
This time, my session was in the afternoon, so in true fashion of many public speakers in the #vCommunity, I had all day to make tweaks. I was also able to join a few sessions. Finally found my room in the maze of this convention center and got setup.
The ninja, and co-leader of the St. Louis UserCon, Jonathan Stewart (@virtuallyanadmi), managed to take a picture of me giving my presentation.
A special thank you to the St. Louis VMUG leadership team, who invited me out to meet and share with their community: Marc Crawford (@uber_tech_geek), Jonathan Stewart (@virtuallyanadmi) and Mike Masters (@vMikeMast)
