Date: January 9, 2014

By: Aaron Delp and Brian Gracely

Description: Brian talks with Angelo Luciani (@AngeloLuciani) and Eric Wright (@discoposse) about their Virtual Design Masters contest (Season 2), how VMUGs are changing, how Home Labs are evolving and the choices IT professionals are making about next-gen technologies for 2014 and 2015.

Topic 1 -You two are the face of the VMware communities in Canada, so tell us a little about yourselves?
Topic 2 - I was recently listening to the VUPAAS podcast and Eric talked about this contest you’re running (Virtual Design Master) to highlight people doing cool things with operations. Tell us about that.
Topic 3 - Let’s talk about VMware communities. I’m specifically interested in your view on a couple areas: (a) non-vendor participation, (b) operations/cloud interests
Topic 4 - I saw that Eric recently posted some homelab things about OpenStack (http://t.co/vNHpeFIijs & http://t.co/PICyW22iDf). What are you hearing from VMware-centric people about their interests in OpenStack?

Topic 5 - What are you seeing as the new trends in communities, online labs, and how people are learning and sharing?
