On Day Two Cloud we talk about how to start and participate in a cloud user group. We talk about logistics, money, sponsors, a venue–in other words, the nuts and bolts of running and engaging with a cloud community.

Our guest is Chris Williams, a multi-cloud consultant at WWT. Chris is an AWS Community Hero and has participated in vBrownBag and VTUG.

  • Identifying the best meeting time and venue
