Citrix UK User Group logo

The Steering Group would like to advise that the next free-to-attend meeting is to be Wednesday 30th September in central London.

Given the UK Citrix User group is about you – the users, administrators, installers, and architects of Citrix environments, it is always great to hear about your experience, your understanding, what you like and what you don’t like, what you’d like to see more of and less of.

Never attended before and would like a review to give guidance for your call to papers experience? Check out our UK Citrix User Group Past Meeting reviews. Want to talk about Citrix Workspace Cloud? Your HDX experiences? How you got on with your 7.6 XenApp upgrade? Why you’ve resolutely stuck to 6.5? Your VDI experiences with Windows 10? Want to demonstrate your mastery of the video demo? Want to spend 10 minutes talking through a really useful script or set of resources? Something else entirely? The world (where “world=a hotel in central London in front of @100 of your peers) is your mollusc.

To this end – if you’ve a suggestion for topics, or a topic to present please drop us a line or tweet us at @ukcitrixug

Look forward to seeing you.

Review: UK Citrix User Group XIII – “bloody good fun”

2015-06-25 09.07.21

The Citrix UK User Group XIII event kicked into its teenageness with an impressive attendance from the pleasant surrounds of Southwark in the Novotel on Blackfriars Road in London. Decent coffee, working air-con, commendable wi-fi: happy days. Mind…what a useless projector…

No?…

Just me?…

Fair enough then…

The Steering Group would like to thank all the presenters for their time, effort and engaging presentations. As ever, thanks the 3D-realtime attendees for providing interesting and useful questions and discussing challenges and ideas. And to those on-line – its great to virtually see you.

The UK Citrix User Group believe in engaging the community to drive the best value for everyone, and with that in mind we continued our use of Go-To-Webinar to broadcast the event live. Waves and thanks to the 20+ virtual attendees  who called us on the telephone so they wouldn’t be alone. For those who’ve attended on-line before hope the fact we had microphones this time gave better audio.  We didn’t record this one; we don’t seem to get a lot of people following up after the event. Your feedback, as ever, is appreciated, we’d like to know how best to hold your hand.

Who comes to these events? Quick stats run down… it is mainly end users of attendees on the day but, you know, other people want to hold us tight:-

  • 54% end users
  • 13% from Citrix ( yep… well worth coming to get to speak to those on the other side of the tunnel to make sure you’re both digging the same way)
  • 23% from partners/consultancies
  • 8% vendor

Of course, many thanks to our sponsors AppSenseAtlantis Computing, eg Innovations, fslogix, PernixData and LiquidwareLabs for helping to make this our thirteenth free-to-attend event: no matter where you are. I’ll admit we do challenge our sponsors by giving them a 15 minute slot, but well done to them all for focusing their content to fit the time.

Welcome to UK Citrix User Group

Nice touch from Novotel, unless you’ve spent your weekend doing an Octoblu demo…

Welcome to the new UK Citrix User Group!

Welcome!

Welcome to the new-look UK Citrix User group!

Introducing the new UK Citrix User Group

A few dedicated Citrix engineers and consultants decided the UK had gone without a proper Citrix user group for long enough. So over a beer, a plan was hatched and the results of which you are now reading. It’s still early days, but it’s a start and we look forward to growing the group to become an established part of the Citrix community in the UK over the next few years.

Meetings

We don’t want the group to become a London-only user group, and plan to hold meetings around the country. We welcome suggestions on suitable venues and you can post your own suggestions in the various regional group forums.

Membership

Membership is currently free, although we are investigating the option of having a tiered membership system where a paid membership gives you a number of additional benefits such as discounts on Citrix courses and exams, and access to the Citrix Community Lab infrastructure.
