mmsThe (if you ask me) community for community event this year will be again the Midwest Management Summit in Minneapolis this 9-11 November. Last year this event was organized for the first time by the Minnesota System Center User Group and it was a huge success! See here my wrap-up blog of the first edition. So if you want to attend a real knowledge event with many speakers and MVPs from around the world be sure to attend this November in the Mall Of America, it is getting sold out!!

This week I was able to attend and speak at BriForum in Denver. Wow what is BriForum a nice community event, no sales, no marketing just techies sharing knowledge and experience with others. What a great week it was, met some really nice people and attending a non Microsoft only conference was sometimes a real eyeopener 😉 Without joking, normally I attend Microsoft oriented conferences like TechEd and MMS (both Microsoft Management Summit as Midwest Management Summit) but BriForum is a place where you can find it all. Microsoft, Citrix, Vmware all the VMI and Mobility experts. So much knowledge in one building, phew. Being part of BriForum felt like being part of the BriForum family since many of the attendees and speakers knows each other for years and years.. To summarize it in three words: IT WAS GREAT!

briforumlondonLast week I was invited to present one session at BriForum London. BriForum is all about end-user computing as they on the website: “We live, eat and breathe at the point where end users intersect with enterprise IT technology”. A very nice conference and setup about virtualization, VDI, enterprise mobility, DaaS platforms and much more, held for the 17th time.

BriForum gives you an opportunity to interact with the speakers and fellow IT Pro’s that are attending the 30+ sessions during the two days that BriForum is happening.
