Just a little reflection on the last few weeks.  The first part of December was crazy busy.  I enjoyed a few days off with family over the holidays. It was great to get off email, not blog, tweet, or do anything online for a few days. I really needed it.  Then I started off January in an very unusual way.  I attended a week of training on VMware vSphere 5.0.  What other company sends you to training on your competitors products?  It was good to learn about their product.  I understand much more now about how our Hyper-V stacks up to VMware.  I will write more about what I learned later, but for now it was a good week and a good start to the new year 2012.   I hope your holidays were wonderful, and things are looking good for 2012.

Right now we are doing a lot of planning for 2012.  I am looking at coming back to Dallas/Houston/Austin with major full day events again soon, we may even do some cities multiple days so we can get more people in.   More Angelbeats coming in February including Little Rock, Dallas, Oklahoma City and Tulsa.  The big news is some of the national Cloud events I will be speaking at. No announcements yet, but I have submitted sessions to several, I hope to be announcing soon which ones I will be speaking at.
