What is the Online option?
The online option allows you to view the sessions after the event. There will likely be a two week day delay before the event is available online. The online event is a subset of the Live Waltham Event. Not all sessions will be made available to the online participants. At least one full track will be made available. The event is streamed live to the locations listed above and then the recordings will be put up a few days after the event. This gives people that attended the opportunity to see online some of the sessions they may have missed during the event.
What does it cost and if this really is a community event, why is it not free?
There will be a very small fee for attendees. The fee is $10 early bird and $15 after that (much better than the $35.00 it cost last year) We will also be offering an online option so people can get the information virtually if they cannot make it to the live event location the day of the event. The online option will be $15. If Live attendees want to also have access to the online content they can get a ticket for only $10 more. As for why it is not free… We do have a number of sponsors but not enough to cover all the costs. In order to provide such a large event to our audience we have had to turn to outsourcing some of the logistics. Our biggest expense is actually the online component. In order to give people access to the content we have to pay by the hour of download time for each person that signs up for the online part of the event. We are simply passing these costs on to the online users. The small entry fee for live events will help us with some of the other logistics the community groups will be responsible for paying. All proceeds go to the community groups after the bills are paid. So, whatever you put in, you will find the community is giving it back out! J

Snapshot of the details:
Join us for a Deep Dive on Virtualization Technology - Server, Desktop, Application, and Storage Virtualization as well as cloud computing. We will talk about many aspects of virtualization including Security, Performance and Management. We will have several tracks of presentations many of which will be heavy demo sessions. An entire track is reserved for Hands-on Sessions so bring a computer is you like and dig in with professional assistance. Since this is an all day event, we will of course have plenty of food and beverages thanks to our many sponsors.
A quick disclaimer: As most already know this event is being run entirely by the community of volunteers at the many different locations. Also, this is our first attempt to stream an event online. If we have issues, please have patience and understanding... :) Thank you

What others are saying…
A sampling of the feedback from last year's event:
And that's when they paid $35 to attend. This year, due to the fantastic support of our sponsors, we are lowering that fee to below cost. Just imagine the value you will get out of attending. Tell the boss you need the day out of the office and mark your calendar - it is cheap enough to expense! If you cannot expense it, it is even cheap enough to put up the money yourself.
What is the Plan? Check the Deep Dive Day Page for the latest Details. Schedule and sessions subject to change without notice! In Waltham there will be 5 tracks with up to 5 breakout sessions per track. New York City will have One track and will run concurrently with the Waltham event. The St. Louis event will run an hour later (due to the time zone difference) and will have a slightly modified agenda. Each location will develop their own schedule based on room availability and content that is available during the times they are there. Some sessions in remote locations will be delivered by different people and at different times than those in Waltham (eg. In St. Louis the keynote will be delivered by Kevin Remde and the App-V session will be delivered by Matt McDermott)
A Very Special THANKS goes out to our sponsors. Please show them how much we (the community) appreciates their support by patronizing them if you can!
