It may not be the Wizard of Oz, but for those of us whose passion lies in the virt genre also known as “Desktop Virtualization”, VMUG EUC Explore is more exciting than a trip down the yellow-brick road!
In case you haven’t heard, EUC Explore is a VMUG event created to connect IT professionals, who use or have interest in EUC solutions, to industry experts from VMware, EUC vendors, and community members. This is not the first ever event of it’s kind. Last year, a pilot event coined “VMUG EUC Day 2016” was launched in Minneapolis, MN. With little notice, 200 EUC enthusiasts converged upon Normandale Community College in Bloomington, MN for a FREE day-long conference that included technical deep-dives into EUC products released by VMware, as well as the vendors that support those products.
I managed to get every single breakout-session recorded, and have a link-o-rama right here: http://tcwd.net/vblog/2016/04/05/euc-day-2016-in-the-books-breakout-videos-posted/
I promise you, these events coming up will set the standard for VMUG EUC-based events from this point forward. Here is a brief summary of each event in 2017.
Boston VMUG UserCon featuring EUC Explore – Thursday, June 1st
Boston Convention and Exhibition Center

You will have an opportunity to meet some of the biggest and best EUC minds in the industry at these events. Agendas for Boston and New York City are shaping up nicely! Shawn Bass, Vice President and CTO of EUC at VMware will be providing keynotes at Boston and New York City, and Simon Long, Double VCDX and VMware OneCloud EUC Architect will be presenting on VMware’s internal Horizon deployment. How cool is that?
There will also be sessions on AirWatch, Workspace One, Horizon, UEM / Instant Clones / App Volumes and more… along with a slew of great EUC vendor content. At the end of the day in NYC and Minneapolis, there will be a VMware EUC Champions session where you can ask the experts anything you like.
I am lucky enough to be attending all four of these events, so if you come out, please come and say hi!
