E2EVC Rome, 3 reasons why I was bummed I couldn’t go

Past weekend Alex Juschin organised another E2EVC, it was the “E2EVC XX ROME” edition with 120 attendees from 18 different countries. The community mind set on this event is huge counting  20 MVPs, 16 CTPs and 6 vExperts.

I was really bummed that I couldn’t attend this event in Rome as my family was asking for some quality time after a pretty busy period. While thinking about this event I came up with a top 3 reasons why I was sad I couldn’t go:

  • Content
  • Beer.. Err, the off event meetings/diners/discussions
  • Community heroes

Content:

There’s a great offering of content from all vendors, from RES/AppSense to Microsoft/VMware and Citrix. Even freeware tooling gets covered during this event. The big plus for E2EVC is that the information is completely without marketing and pretty unbiased (as far as a MVP/CTP/vExpert can be unbiased ;)).

Take a look at last events agenda:

Or take a sneak peek at E2EVC’s youtube channel.

Off event meetings:

The off event meetings are added value to E2EVC, when going out to diner everybody gathers and people go out in groups (maybe even just one group). These moments are very valuable, you can get in one to one discussions or in group discussion on topics we all see from architectural design discussions to in depth technical issues but everything with a good dose of humor and laughter.

Community heroes:

With community heroes I mean all attendees, not just the ones that got rewarded. Every single man (or woman for that sake) that attends E2EVC has a community mindset and is contributing in one way or another to our community.

So that are my top reasons why I was bummed I couldn’t make it to E2EVC Rome. I will be there next time so Alex, you can count me in for Brussels May 30, June 2, 2014! You can still register for this event using the early bird discount:
