What is VMUnderWorld? 5


That is a very good question, What is VMunderworld?

VMunderworld was named by Rick Vanover during a Twitter conversation about starting our own Community Based Virtual Conference. I had originally thought of Virtual Underground Conference ( #VVC). Rick came back with VMunderworld. It’s alot less characters and honestly has a nice feel to it.

Rick is qouted as saying ” The VMUnderWorld sounds RAW, and “Virtualization from the streets” like.

Wow! he hit it right on the head! take pure RAW content from end users and have a virtual or even real in-person conference.

I texted Matthew Brender and said Register this domain http://www.vmunderworld.com. With out questioning Matt did this. This pure idea is now being brought into the real world. Some other great minds that I respect jumped on board. Thomas Jones, Chris Cicotte, Cody Bunch, Rick Vanover, Matthew Brender, Rick Byrne to name a few. This is going to be epic!

Now understand like Rome this isn’t going to be built in a day but VMworld, Cisco Live, HP Discover, Oracle’s thing, Interop all started with an idea an passionate people, who knows where this will lead.

Like any good conference any and all sponsors are welcome!

The Team is assembling and there will be more news out soon so keep an eye out and get involved in and with the VMUnderWorld!! Virtualization from the  streets!

  • YOU KNOW IT! We are going to make it happen. What this will be, “I have no clue”.

    I was floating some ideas around today during a quick nap. Maybe a long webinar all day that people log into. Maybe a bit of seriousness material on Sunday before the WuPaaS party that is streamed online before VMworld.

    It has to be raw and bloggers, end users only. “We’ll skip all marketing sausage factories for this one”What do you think would be a good way to get this delivered? Maybe a whole week before VMworld, streamed line TechFieldDay? Like the Friday before VMworld a rolling series of online broadcasts?Share some ideas peeps!

      Mike Laverick had the same idea last year. I believe he did a few online sessions.

      • David,
        Mike Laverick is a smart man and guess great minds think alike 😉 However this will be slightly different and expand as time goes on. Right now it is a concept which is in works of becoming real. Something the Community can benifit from as a whole. More content from us the End users and no marketing fluff. We are always open to suggestions, success stories and failures.. learn from past right.
        I really appreciate your input and the time you took reading the post thanks!

        Rick,
        If I didn’t believe in it I wouldn’t have invested the little energy thus far, we will make this Rock!
