Virtualization Africa: Day 3

Just keep you folks updated on our hotshot virtualization journey across Africa (East Africa BTW):

  • Visited two (of the 8 client sites): They have made tremendous progress, really proud of the folks. They are all getting geared up for the Virtualization workshop which I will be giving (beginning 19th - 26th). travelled about 1200+ kms , fortunately our Toyota Prada kept me warm and cozy. The trip can be back-breaking, but the gratification to see clients excel surpasses everything.
  • Green Grid template + Press conference: This will be fixed tomorrow as I sweat and invite folks from major telecom providers, largest University in East Africa (who too will be trained by me), The Netherlands embassy, the representatives of the Ugandan Govt and some hardware vendors such as HP. should have the presentation done by tomorrow!
  • Training/workshop: Making final preps to have the candidates fully prepared for the training!
More later...
