Join Brian Madden for EUC Community Tech Talks & Beer during VMworld US 2019

Join Brian Madden for a series of short, unfiltered, community-based technical talks from EUC industry thought leaders, just like the early days of BriForum! We’ll provide snacks, beer, and a stage. Your peers (and maybe you!) will provide the content. It's happening the Wednesday evening of VMworld 2019 in San Francisco at the Marriott across the street.

VMworld 2019 in San Francisco is just about a month away, which means it’s time to start planning your schedule. I’m happy to announce that I’ll again be hosting the evening EUC geek / tech talk / beer / junk food / evening event on Wednesday evening.

We did this last year too—my first year at VMware—and it was a great time. Our thinking is that while VMworld is awesome, it’s also awesome, like, very huge, and it seems like us EUC folk get lost in a sea of a billion vSphere, vCloud, NSX, and vSAN lovers who don’t give a hoot about EUC. (Not that there's a problem with that. They care about EUC as much as I care about cell phone tower virtualization—it's cool to hear about, but not my jam.)

So the idea is we reserved a room for a few hours with beer and junk food where everyone who’s interested in EUC can hang out and chat. As part of this, we’ll have some prepared talks, but they will be short, just 15 minutes each. Some folks have reached out to me already, and we have room for one more:

  • Andy Morgan, Running Citrix on VMware Cloud on AWS
  • Christiaan Brinkhoff, WVD and VMware Horizon
  • Johan van Amersfoort, Using the same hardware for VDI in the day, AI/ML processing at night
  • Jack Madden, User enrollment in iOS 13
  • Sean Massey, Building virtual mobile device labs with Android
  • ??? Something awesome from you ???

If you want to present a quick topic, shoot me an email ( with your idea. You can use your own laptop, you have 15 minutes, and you can talk about whatever you want as long as (1) it relates to EUC, (2) it's technical, and (3) it's cool.

One final note: Since this event takes place at the Marriott hotel across the street from the Moscone Center (the main VMworld conference center), you don’t technically need a VMworld pass to come. (But please register for this event so we can get an accurate count for planning purposes.)
