VMware released a video today made with Steve Herrod their outgoing CTO saying good bye to the VMUG. I really think it was a class act him mentioning the user group. The move of Herrod leaving the virtualization juggernaut surprised many in the industry. I see his experience as CTO a value to his new challenge working with Venture Capitalist firm General Catalyst. I look forward to seeing what he does in the future.
Farewell VMUG video
This was an awesome thing Herrod did, when he didn’t have to. This shows the value of the VMUG and it’s members, whether this was his idea or for marketing of the group it was a great gesture.
