VMUG UserCons are single-day, in-person events hosted in 26 cities across 8 countries. UserCons feature a full day of education, training and networking all centered around VMware users, their career development and personal interests. Hear from VMware top execs like Pat Gelsinger and Sanjay Poonen, VMware thought leaders like Chris McCain, Kyle Ruddy, Kit Colbert, Duncan Epping and Chris Wolf, and vCommunity favorites like Ariel Sanchez, Chris Hildebrand, Tony Gonzales, Eric Lee and Lindy Collier about your next steps within the VMware community.

Although VMUG is free to join (shameless plug, join now!), all IT pros and VMware enthusiasts should attend this single-day, in-person technology event. Do you test in your home lab? Use VMware products and solutions to solve and disrupt in your professional career? Live a life of experimentation, testing, and exploration? Looking to stay up-to-date on the current technology trends and even get ahead of the newest developments in technology? Then UserCons are the place for you!

For vSphere and Horizon users, these sessions will help provide the tools to upgrade their current platform and get the most out of their vSphere and Horizon environments.



For members who have an upgraded skillset or company technology such as vSAN/HCI, NSX, Workspace ONE, or vCF, these sessions would help provide a deeper understanding in VMware's emerging technologies.



These sessions are for members who have fully adopted the newest technology within the Public Cloud or DevOps space, or are interested in learning what’s coming in the future – such as Kubernetes and Tanzu.
