    VDI in a Box Demo Day - 6th June 2012 - Fitzharrys School

    Its finally organised - I've got 3 speakers (including a chappy from Citrix) to come and present at the second Fitzharrys School (Abingdon, Oxfordshire) VDI in a Box demo day.

    Details are-
    Wednesday 6th June 2012
    Starts at 10am finishes ~3pm
    Talks are on VDI, Thin Clients, Remote access to VDI and how we do it all at Fitz
    Bring along your own Citrix Receiver compatible device and we shall see about hooking it up to our WiFi/VDI
    School Tour - we might even have Lync 2010 setup on the phones by then.
    Free Lunch

    PM me for the full banner (don't want to post it here as its a little too advertisementy) and to reserve your seat.

    Any questions again just PM me or put them below.

  2. 3 Thanks to jamesfed:

    So what's the best way to get there from London?

    Anyone else going from that way?

    Train to Oxford/Didcot and then bus the rest of the distance would work if you are looking at public transport.

    We'll probably take a cab from Didcot - anyone else want to share?

    Hi James

    We can loan you a couple M80 Axel "Zero" clients for the day if you want to show something a bit different and more cost effective than Linux / Windows based devices...?

    I'm going to be out from Friday - Tuesday so might not have enough time to have them ready for the day but are more than happy to give some a spin

    Just like to say thanks to all that attended!
    We had 16 schools and 20 people attend and it looks like my estimates for the right amount of food was spot on (although could've done with a few juice drinks but hey!).

    The PowerPoints and videos from my bits will be online around 9am tomorrow morning (at least unless my backup server parts arrive before then!)
