vCampus Live! 2011 was a great success. We had almost twice the number of attendees compared to vCampus Live! 2010.

 

This year we had a lot of new things. The biggest change has to be the 3 tracks of hands-on sessions. I believe the concept was very well received, even though there were some (serious) hiccups with some of the Virtual Machines. The Developers Lounge also received good comments. Having the general sessions in the food area was also well received!

 

Rhys has blogged about his experience during vCampus Live! with a good response from Rick Davin. You can find that blogpost (with the comment) here.

 

We as the vCampus Team would like to thank everyone who attended. You made this event awesome. We had some really great discussions during the breaks, but especially during the Vox Pop sessions and the Roundtable discussions.

 

vCampus Live! is our event, so it's up to us (as the community) to make this awesome. That's why we need your feedback and post-vCampus Live! feelings. We really value your opinion in order to make vCampus Live! 2012 a worthy sequel.

 

vCampus Live! 2012 has been scheduled for the week of Nov. 26th 2012. We received some concerns that this was just after the US Thanksgiving holiday. Please note that the actual dates are not set. We will probably have a same schedule as this year (starting at a wednesday with the official event, and tuesday being the pre-conference day).

 

What did you like? What did you not like? What would you like to see again?

 

Here are some pictures to give an impression of the event!
