Friday Spotlight: Virtual Sysadmin Day Winter 2014

Happy Friday! Our Friday Spotlight today is a bit unique in that we're putting the same information on both the Oracle Virtualization blog and the Oracle Linux blog. The reason is that we want to tell you about a fantastic opportunity for Oracle VM and Oracle Linux administrators.

On January 28, Oracle is hosting an event called Virtual Sysadmin Day. If you haven't attended one of these before, you're in for a treat. These events let you attend a virtual version of the hands on lab sessions that we run each year at Oracle OpenWorld. So, if you've ever wanted to go to one of those sessions but couldn't get to San Francisco or the other Oracle OpenWorld locations around the world, now is your chance to attend from the comfort of you desk!

The format is really cool. The materials for the lab are provided for you, you just need to have Oracle VM VirtualBox (it's a free download), and download the pre-configured virtual machines for the labs. You should do this ahead of the event, but all the information to help you do it is available to you when you register.

On the day of the event, you login and watch some intro content that sets up the labs, and then you follow the steps for the labs on you own system. Oracle experts will be in the chat area to help with issues you might run into.

Virtual Sysadmin Day Winter 2014
January 28, 2014
9AM - 1PM Pacific Standard Time

Virtual Sysadmin Day is one of my favorite events, I hope you have time to check it out!
