Michelle Laverick Michelle Laverick Profile: Michelle Laverick

In the morning I had a little chat with my publisher, McGraw-Hill. Nothing explosive to report except to say that we have chosen to lift the VMware View chapter out of the new book. Primarily, because I know a new version is on its way – and so I want to aviod it being “dated” before the book...

Well, I’m back in the UK but I thought I would catch-up on some blogging. On Wednesday I had a meeting with Hannah Drake of TechTarget.com. Just informal chat about the possibility of me contribiting to their site. I’ve got this idea for a VMware PowerCLI web-page that makes hyperlinks of all...

I was quite fortunate to be invited to a private press/analyst cloud event with Paul M. There was just some 50-100 people in the main auditorium. We were told we’re not allowed to live blogging, because there was a press release due directly after the event itself. Paul M began by outlining...

Well, I’m trying to live blog and tweet this morning at the VMworld. I’m gonna save this page, and keep up dating it as worthwhile news dribbles through. Something tells me – that this might end up like an episode of Big Brother! If you onlin refresh this page every couple of minutes to find...

Michelle Laverick Michelle Laverick Profile: Michelle Laverick

Well, I’ve actually been here since Saturday afternoon. So its hard to say when my first day was. I have friend who lives in Palo Alto. He’s a fellow Brit who’s been out here since 2001. I think I’ve been across to see Geoff about 5-6 times since he’s been here, the last time being...

WooHoo/Phew – I passed the VCP4

Michelle Laverick Michelle Laverick Profile: Michelle Laverick

Well, the email FINALLY came thru this afternoon whilst I was sitting on the VMware Certified Instructor (VCI) day – that I passed the VCP4 beta exam. No breakdown of my results. Just an email. It was pretty tense, because if you didn’t get the email, it meant you hadn’t passed. So as I...
