E2EVC Brussels: the XenMobile mega session!


Over a year ago the E2EVC events (or PubForum as it was called before) were enthusiastically promoted to me by one of the grandfathers Ton de Vreede. He did such a good job promoting the upcoming Copenhagen event that I decided to check my schedule and book that ticket and hotel right away. Eager to experience that community feeling of sharing knowledge (AND DRINKS!!!) with kindred spirits, community leaders and a lot of nerdie and geekie (as my girlfriend affectionately refers to them) friends.

At Copenhagen I was instantly adopted into the E2EVC family and was affected with the same virus that makes us so excited about our work and the great technologies that we get to play with every day. So without a moments though I booked my next ticket for the Rome edition that would follow in the fall. And decided that it was time for me to take the stage as well and share my knowledge with the community.

I even managed to get my girlfriend exited as well, so the Rome edition of E2EVC was quickly extended with a short vacation to do some sightseeing and introduce my girlfriend to a new family of very passionate techies that enthusiastically share their knowledge, drinks and experiences. I think it made her understand my own passion and eagerness to share even better.


You probably already guessed it! The ticket for the next event was booked within 10 minutes after Alex Juschin announced tickets were available.

You can imagine my surprise …. that quickly turned into feeling honored and very fortunate to have been selected as one of the break out session presenters at Citrix Synergy 2014. Especially for the Mobility track that is still the youngest addition to the Citrix portfolio.
