As a personal choice, I can’t wait to meet again some of the people I appreciate in this community: Adrian Constantin, Tomas Michaeli, Cristian Radu, or Dan Popa. I’m also curious about the news coming from AWS space.

As a bonus, I’m happy to announce VMUG Romania will have a presentation booth at vForum (thanks VMware Romania for making it possible!). Please come by and say hi to VMUG Romania team. We are happy to hear from you and talk about our next meeting 🙂
