DC VMUG – Connect with your Community!

Your DC VMUG leadership team is working hard on a couple events this spring, with a local meeting sponsored by PernixData on Feb 19th and an all day regional (DC, MD, VA) VMUG UserCon on April 16, 2015, with more events coming later in the year.  We want to make sure that you, our community, stay up to date with our events!  We have several ways to engage with the community – pick the ones that you like best!

vmug-heads-125The DC VMUG Workspace on the VMUG website is where we share files (presentations from meetings), updates on events and notes from your leaders.  If you’re a VMUG member, you should make sure you have an account on the Workspace – the same account is used to subscribe to the VMUG Advantage program (which now includes a ton of software for you to use in your lab through the new EVALExperience!)

dcvmuglogo1The DCVMUG.com website links you to all of our resources and social media sites.  It also provides links to our generous sponsors and information on how to sponsor a local DC VMUG meeting.  The site has an RSS feed if you like to keep tabs on info through a feed reader.


twitter_square-125Our Twitter account @DCVMUG is the most frequently updated source of information – event updates, industry news, local VMware events.  We RT our tweets to minimize the chance of you missing an update, but tweets are coming fast and furious these days so make sure you keep an eye on another source of information.  Note that there is also a @NoVAVMUG account left over from years ago when we were talking about splitting the group into smaller DC and VA groups so our members didn’t have to deal with the mess that is DC traffic!  Stick with the @DCVMUG account for updates!

linkedin-iconFor those of you who like to keep your professional world separate from your personal, there’s a LinkedIn group for the DC VMUG.  Join the group for discussions, event updates and virtualization related job leads.  Please note that this is a new group on LinkedIn (as of February 2015) – if you’re a member of the old group make sure you switch over to this new official one!


We have a Facebook page and a Facebook group.  The page is where the real action is, so make sure you like it, but feel free to join the group too as it is a place to have more personal conversations with your local VMware community!  The DC VMUG website feeds the page, so you’ll get all of our updates there.


googleplusiconThere’s a Google+ Page too.  The content here is also fed from the DC VMUG website, so just like the Facebook page you’ll get all our updates by +’ing us (and Google likes it when you have a G+ account for search engine optimization).


We look forward to connecting with you!
