The 2012 VM Workshop will take place June 28-30 at the University of Kentucky, Lexington, KY.
z/VM, and Linux on System z Friends,
Location, travel, lodging from (really inexpensive!) dorm rooms up to nearby hotels, registration, travel hints, and sponsor information for the 2012 VM Workshop have been posted to http://www.vmworkshop.org/
The University of Kentucky in beautiful downtown Lexington, KY.
SESSION DATES: Thursday morning JUNE 28 until NOON Saturday JUNE 30.
Choose from multiple concurrent presentations packed full of up-to-the-minute technical details for all levels of z/VM, and Linux on System z users. Wednesday June 27 is reserved for VM Workshop planning committee meetings; if you are interested in planning, please *do* join the committee.
Previous VM Workshops have been referred to by the small-minded as: 'a large number of system programmers with some limited adult supervision' (do you _really_ want to miss this!??). Expect another wonderful "up close and personal" workshop with great content and terrific camaraderie. Come to meet VM old-timers... and *future* VM old-timers while learning the latest technical z/VM and Linux for System z details. Don't know where to start with Linux on System z? This is a great place to start!
Unchanged from last year, ** ONLY $100 per attendee**. The best bargain out there for VM and Linux education on System z, and reasonable for anyone paying their own way.
Registration is now LIVE, please check it out soon! Advice: onsite registration is not likely, and will involve additional fees to the university, so register now! (Live servers are standing by to take your registration)
As encouragement to register soon: EVERYONE REGISTERED BY **JUNE 1ST** WILL BE GUARANTEED THEIR VERY OWN EXCLUSIVE "VM WORKSHOP" **POLO SHIRT** up to size 4X (not another cheap T-shirt given away at those "higher-priced" conferences). :-)~
If you have a cool tool or other procedure that you developed, please consider sharing it by filling in either (or both!)
- VM Workshop session submission form at http://www.vmworkshop.org/2012/presenters
- VM Workshop tools submission form at http://www.vmworkshop.org/tools/submit-a-tool
Tools will be published to vmworkshop.org ASAP.
The VM Workshop began as a way for VM systems programmers to share what they do at their sites, what tools they had written, and what they had learned... let's stay on that track of user-presented sessions. Don't have enough to fill an hour? No problem... submit the idea (or multiple ones!) and the committee will merge multiple shorter presentations in to full hour sessions. Don't be shy, we're all your z/VM and Linux on System z **friends** - no 'flaming' is tolerated.
Place this on your calendars and please join us at the University of Kentucky. Don't miss this fun (and learning) event!
