VMUG Romania October Meeting Report

Better late than never, so here it is the report for VMUG Romania latest meeting. On 16th October, 35 guests attended the last VMUG Romania meeting of the year. We held our meeting in the beautiful offices of our sponsor, Veeam. This meeting we added a new feature to our meeting: at the request of few remote colleagues, we streamed live on Facebook almost all the presentations. This allowed me to embed the videos into this article, so double win! We received cool feedback, so for next sessions we will have some sort of live streaming for sure.

I had the honor to present in the first slot of the meeting. As this year is the first year when Romania has not only one, but 2 vExperts, I thought this is a good opportunity to spread the word about vExpert program into the community. I talked about vExpert program, about the benefits of joining it and I showed the audience my path to vExpert. You can watch below my presentation in Romanian.

VMUG Romania February 2018

VMUG Romania Meeting February 2018

Together with Razvan Ionescu, I hosted last Friday the first VMUG Romania meeting of 2018. This time we returned to our hosts from Impact Hub, but in their new and modern home from Timpuri Noi building.

Despite our efforts on advertising the event, we took a hit for the number of participants. We may had issues due to another event ran same end of the week by HPE and VMware in Brasov.

However, we were happy to have with us our friends from NetApp and Logicom, which sponsored the event.

AWSome Day 2017 Romania

AWSome Day 2017 in Romania

November is a good month for Amazon Web Services lovers from Romania: Bittnet and AWS are hosting not one, but two editions of AWSome Day! AWSome Day is a free introductory one-day event, based on the official AWS Technical Essentials course. Bittnet is the only authorized AWS Training Partner in Romania, and also holds AWS Consulting Partner status.

This is the third consecutive year in which Romanian users can attend this type of event. I have attended the first edition held at Hotel Novotel in Bucharest in October 2015 and it was a great event. Excellent content for an AWS introduction and a great networking opportunity.

Google Cloud OnBoard Bucharest

Google Cloud OnBoard – Bucharest

Launched end of last year in Tokyo, Google Cloud OnBoard is a series of conferences which already brought together more than 20,000 technology enthusiasts from 49 cities. Bucharest joined it today when around 600 people gathered at JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel.

Talking with some of the participants, it was like Google succeeded to attract talents from all major IT companies from Romania. These conferences are not only about presenting someone’s vision and product, it’s also about networking. I met with friends and colleagues, I made new acquaintances, so it was a good day. My knowledge on Google Cloud Platform is extremely limited, so I had a lot to learn today.
