Did your VMworld 2011 Session get rejected?


Like many today I recieved the dredded your Session(s) were not selected email. AHHH!! Whocares! at least that’s how I’m taking it.  There are plenty of Rockstars out there who didn’t get accepted, instead of giving up I challange you to still share that information with the community.

Plenty of great advice has been giving on ways to get your content out there. I will give some options which I feel is a great way to contribute great content to the community!

But here’s the thing you have to still create a presentation in order for this to work!

Contact your local VMUG (VMware User Group)

Don’t know if you have a VMUG near you? Easy check myvmug.org for one. If not there hop onto the VMware Community Forums . This is a great way to build presentation skills and allow you to network with others using VMware products.  Great advice from Brian Gracely & Kendrick Coleman where this came from.

BrownBag on ProfessionalVMware.com

Now this is a great option as well for people as it’s all done over the interwebs. Truly being “Virtual” Cody Bunch does an excellent job here and is debating on a seperate way to get these sessions involved. Cody is a good friend of mine and an even better community member for all you VMware users. He devotes alot of time into the BrownBags.

Write some Blog posts

Now you might say you don’t have a Blog, or time to set one up. No worries people I’ve already offered to have people blog on here! I have a descent following and it would be great to have some different perspectives on NerdBlurt. (selfish I know ;))

Honestly create a blog, ask a friend to write on theirs, write one on here, what matters is that you are sharing information with the community. You may not know it but if you are sharing you are helping somebody some where.
