Review:UK Citrix UG XV–“wish I’d attended sooner”

The Citrix UK User Group XV. XV..my, how it has grown. Look at the size of it! We’ve had the most attendees yet. As a founding member I want to ruffle the UKCUG’s hair, hug it..take a step back and look how big it is…and in a few short years it’ll be posting it’s Facebook status from University that you can’t comment on because, well… and not coming home for Christmas because its working and you’re wondering whether to make its room an office… Just me? Again?

The Steering Group would like to thank all the presenters for their time, effort and engaging presentations. Thanks the 3D-realtime attendees for providing interesting and useful questions as well as discussing their challenges and ideas. To those 20+ on-line – appreciate the hellos when we asked, and apologies for phasing in and out, our roaming microphone met an unfortunate end on the way in.

Please bear in mind, if you sign up to the event and can’t attend, we look to send you an invite to our go-to-webinar event: While we’d much rather you attend and contribute in person we realise the day job takes precedence.  We have most of the recordings for download: more on that later.

Who comes to these events? Quick stats run down… it is mainly end users of attendees on the day but, you know here in the UK, we love to be inclusive:-

  • 60% end users/partners – up from the last event
  • 9% from Citrix – down from the last event – although, bless them, a lot of new ex-Citrix employees turned up anyways and contributed as if they were. Kudos.
  • 10% came from a vendor
  • The rest put “other” for those of you who like completeness.

Of course, many thanks to our sponsors Atlantis Computing, eg Innovations, fslogix, PernixData and LiquidwareLabs for helping to make this our fifteenth 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.
