VMworld is online this year (another pandemic change) September 29-Oct 1. VMWorld has always been a great value and source for information. This year the value is exceptional, the General Pass is free to attend online, there is still a Premium pay option to get some of the premiere content, but you can attend from free, and you should. Go to http://www.vmworld.com and signup. I'll add more content for VMworld once the the conference begins. VMworld will be web-based.

Zoom Conferencing

Zoom conferencing has created a lot of attention since the start of the pandemic and quarantines around the world. Zoom is an easy product to use. It works on the popular platforms, Mac, Windows, Android and iPhone. Zoom was the first to support 250 users and it has one of the simplest interfaces to learn. It works for collaboration and screen-sharing. This is especially useful for non-technical people.

Zoom also started out with a free version of the product. Other conferencing systems have followed suit both in a free offering and in the number of users they allow.

My Setup

I have been working from home since before Covid19 became a reality.
Computer -
My primary computer is a Macbook Pro. For windows I have a second computer and I have dedicated virtual machines (VMs) for windows. I have MS office 365, and have been using Office on my Mac for a long time. Most people want MS Office documents/spreadsheets/presentations. While I prefer the Apple Products, I use both. Pick what works best for your needs.

Working From Home

Covid19 has changed the world. It seems everyone is now working from home, or slowly getting back to work. Here a re a couple of things to consider, I’m sure this is behind the times, but it’s still relevant.

I'm Back! Thanks to Covid19

I am back online. I have not focused on my technology website. A couple of reasons for this, too much work and too little time. Second, it has not been a priority. My site was infected with a security vulnerability which required some code rewrites and updates. These have all been addressed and I'm back online.
In the coming weeks I'll be adding content regarding some of the last projects centering on Horizon Workspace One, Citrix Cloud, AWS, and Azure.

My Hiatus is Over

I've been busy with clients and consultants. I've let this site wallow. And I've gotten my pilot license so I can get to my clients faster and in most places.

I thought since I've been away this information on the sight might be out of date. But, I'm surprised. Many of clients are still on older hardware, older operating systems, and using older system. They aren't upgrading. I have clients still on XenApp 4.x, XenApp 6.x. And also older versions of VMware. Windows 2003 is still out there.
