Just a very quick posting to remind/inform all of those in and around the London area who weren’t fortunate enough to be allowed to go to VMworld US or like myself are going to the one in Copenhagen that vBeers is tonight. If you’ve never heard of vBeers before here is the “official” definition of vBeers:
vBeers is an informal get together of virtualisation enthusiasts and professionals to meet and discuss all things IT. It’s a great opportunity to network, learn and meet like minded people.
The following is quoted from Simon Long’s Website:
Every month Simon Seagrave and I try organise a social get together of like-minded Virtualization enthusiasts held in a pub in central London. We like to call it vBeers. Before I go on, I would just like to state, although it’s called vBeers, you do NOT have to drink beer or any other alcohol for that matter. This isn’t just an excuse to get blind drunk.
We came up with idea whilst on the Gestalt IT Tech Field Day back in April. We were chatting and we both recognised that we don’t get together enough to catch-up, mostly do to busy work schedules and private lives. We felt that if we had a set date each month, the likely hood of us actually making that date would be higher than previous attempts. So the idea of vBeers was born.
The London vBeers is held on the first Thursday of every month starting at 6pm in ‘The Cittie of Yorke’ pub which is placed centrally to both London’s West End and The City. This venue serves a fine of selection of English beers along with soft drinks and bar snacks.

Sadly yet again i can’t make it due to me writing a Microsoft exam early tomorrow morning (blog posting forthcoming on this) and therefore even though extremely tempting from past experiences I know I shouldn’t be going out drinking the night before an exam.
