BriForum comes to London in 2011


Brian Madden’s popular BriForum event is making a welcome return to Europe in 2011, and specifically to my home town of London

If you are in the server based computing space (Citrix, Terminal Services, VDI) then this is the place to be for no-vendor bull5h1t real-world information.

I’ve been to 2 previous BriForum events (2007 in Amsterdam in 2010 in Chicago, where I had the honour of presenting my vTARDIS).

there is currently a discount code available that will save you £200

Discount Code for BriForum


As you may have seen before I am giving a session at BriForum in Chicago around low-cost virtual lab environments using a variant of my vT.A.R.D.I.S demo system with as many live demos as possible.

I have a $200 discount code available for my readers, if you want to take advantage of this offer please email or twitter me (details on about page) and I will send you one.

BriForum is still the best technical conference I have ever attended for content (and I last went in 2007!) – get yourself there!


The v.T.A.R.D.I.S is going to BriForum


I’m pleased to announce that I have been chosen to present at BriForum Chicago in June, I’ll be delivering an updated version of my v.T.A.R.D.I.S session (original Blog post here and here) and general home-lab geekiness.

If you’ve not heard about BriForum before, it’s run by Brian Madden and has been running for a number of years – I went to the last European event in 2007 and in fact this blog was created during one of the lunch breaks, so it’s a great honour to be invited to attend and present! I can honestly say I found BriForum to be one of the best conferences I’ve ever attended, its more like a super user-group meeting  but with sessions from the top talent in the SBC and desktop virtualization business and no vendorspam/bias – it’s definitely warts ‘n all!

You can see more details of the current session list here and early-bird discounted registration is running until April 2nd – they even offer a money-back guarantee, so you can’t go wrong!

Now, I need to find a way to transport the v.T.A.R.D.I.S on a plane without getting it impounded 🙂
