With the anticipation of VMworld 2010 (US) building every day as we near August 30, I thought it would only be appropriate to generate a little more anticipation with vDestination.com’s first ever contest giveaway. Are you going to VMworld? Maybe you are, maybe you aren’t, either way, don’t miss out on this contest, it is an amazing prize package. Thanks to my gracious donors, Scott Lowe, David Davis, and Eric Siebert for making this possible. Anyone else interested in donating a book or software to get this person off to a nice start with VMware, please contact me.
