Last Thursday, I was invited as a speaker at the 2012 Dutch VMware User Group Conference at Conference center 1931 in Den Bosch, the Netherlands, to present on virtualization-safe(r) Active Directory and Domain Controller Cloning in VMware environments.
With over five hundred attendees, the organization had its hands full at the registration desk. Luckily, there was a badge for everyone.
I arrived early to accommodate a couple of colleagues and customers in their travel and registration needs, and enjoyed many of the available sessions during the day.
My session was scheduled for the last time slot, which gave me lots of possibilities to enjoy coffee at the booths of several sponsors, incorporate information people heard during the day and to tweak my demos and slides.

It was a good day!
