Just a quick blog to let you know that together with other Citrites and some Citrix Technology Professionals, I will be available in person at the Citrix UK User Group Meetup at the Cisco offices in London, UK. There will be some speakers and attendees flying in from EMEA too. It’s free and a great chance for Citrites, partners and end-users to get together face-to-face. I’ll be on hand to answer your HDX Graphics questions but there is a full programme of other speakers covering a range of Citrix products including Citrix XenDesktop, Netscaler, Podio, XenApp, XenServer and of course HDX 3D Pro.
One of the best things about these events is that there will be other users and third-party Citrix consultants attending, so it’s great to hear about real in-the-field experiences and deployments. You can find the details over on the UK, Citrix User Group, here. The event is being organised by Neil Spellings, CTP and experienced solutions architect.
There will also be a range of partners on-hand such as Atlantis, Nutanix and Cisco. Thanks to whom the event is free to attendees. I imagine there will also be some after-hours networking for those who don’t have to rush off. The Cisco offices are brilliantly placed in central London.
