Weekly virtualization news, as featured on the Community Roundtable podcast.

VMware Fusion team in Palo Alto is looking for an intern. If you want to apply, check out the Fusion page on Facebook.

As John has written on the VMTN blog, we have received an overwhelming response to the vExpert call for nominations, so we're a little backed up and our judges will need two more weeks to go through all the applications with the attention they deserve. John will be announcing the newest crop of vExperts on the blog, and on the Community forums.

On Thursday, I was at the VMware Forum in Anaheim, and recorded a bunch of video interviews with attendees and partners. I tweeted from the event, so those of you who follow me got the scoop and some pictures. I'm @VmwareCommunity on Twitter, if you don't follow me yet. 

We will be making a little YouTube video or two out of the footage we shot at this VMware Forum and the others. Keep an eye out for them in our YouTube channel.

The world of virtualization has a few exciting things in store for us over the next week or so.

The VMware Forum season is in full swing, and we have more events taking place in May and Early June in Budapest, Madrid, Atlanta, Chile, Johannesburg, Houston, Kiev, and Dublin.

The web page with details is linked straight from vmware.com – in the box that says “VMware Forum 2011” on the lower left.

We also have two webinars today about When Java EE Is Overkill: Lightweight Application Server Use Cases, and a Spanish-language one on Physical IT Infrastructure Control with vCenter Configuration Manager.

Tomorrow, we you can learn to Enhance Productivity with Collaborative Workspace from VMware and Cisco. Also a Portuguese-language version of the vCenter Configuration Manager webinar.
