We all enjoy going to our local VMUG meetings and hearing about new cool products but even more we love hearing from our follow peers. The community sessions are one of the strongest things of the VMware User Group.
I remember hearing about how people built their own self service portal years in advance of vCloud Director and vCAC and listening to real life experiences.
What we need is more community sessions. A lot of guys have so much to share, but not all feel confident about it. This if what #FeedForward is all about. Instead of getting Feedback (after the presentations is done, and it is possible the only time you will present it) There is much more value into getting Feedback in advance hence #FeedForward. This will make sure your presentations will improve and that you will enjoy presenting your own cool story.
Mike Laverick is the man behind the program. A new landing page was just created. http://www.vmug.com/feedforward
People can express the intention to either:
- Becoming a Mentor and reviewing presentations for VMUG events
- Sharing a presentation at a VMUG event
- Serving on a Committee to promote FeedForward
If you want to help mentor your fellow VMUG’ers og present your self please sign up on the website.
I am personally a #FeedForward Mentor and have already helped a few guys before their first presentation.
