The Northern UK VMUG – November 16, 2010

The next Next Northern VMUG meeting has been locked and loaded, it is to be the 16th November at 12:00.  They also have a nice and shiny new website outlining the agenda and who is speaking.

Shameless self promotion plug here

I am presenting a agnostic view of the VMware, Citrix and Microsoft Server and Desktop virtualisations products.

so if only to heckle me, you should come along,  this User Group is starting to mature into itself and this is evidenced by the agenda and the fact that they have moved from the Pub to a “proper venue”

They have booked the Park Plaza Hotel in Leeds, this venue can host up to 250 guests, and has multiple sections, this therefore enables them to have multiple concurrent sessions and a vendors/sponsors area. this event is registration only and the link follows
You need to scroll to the bottom of the page.  I hope to see you all there.
