Haymarket, VA (PRWEB) October 10, 2012
For the 7th year in a row, Professional Development Systems (PDS) is organizing and hosting the Packaging Event. It will be held on October 11 – 12, 2012 at the Amsterdam Arena and feature a number of speakers from professionals in the industry, dealing with a range of subjects, from application management and deployment to packaging and virtualization.
The program for Packaging Event 2012 will include different types of sessions each day. This year’s event will feature Technical Sessions, Keynote Sessions, Lab Sessions, Workshops, and Management Sessions. Registration is based on a first come, first served basis, though, so participants are encouraged to register as early as possible because some of the sessions have limited seating.
Bob Kelly, from ITNinja.com, is confirmed to speak during the Technical Sessions and will address the evolution of packaging that will cover the past, present and future of packaging and how, despite changes in technology, the valuable skills related to packaging remain crucial throughout. He will discuss application virtualization, managing Macs, Windows 8, mobile devices and more. Other confirmed speakers include: Ruben Spruijit, Darwin Sanoy, Jim Ryan, and others who are expected to cover information about desktop management, private cloud computing, application compatibility, and Windows 7/8 migrations.
The event was created as a way for people in the IT industry to get updates from recognized leaders and experts in the field. This year will provide opportunities for attendees to speak with people behind the Windows Installer Technology and have discussions with the program managers of their preferred products to learn about future releases. This year will also feature product management presentations from Microsoft, Flexera Software (AdminStudio), Quest Software, Citrix, and others.
This is also a chance to get hands-on demonstrations of different products and processes that are still in development, and there will once again be an exhibition area where participants can learn about solutions from local services and various companies. Some of the workshops will include information on becoming a Repackaging Professional/Specialist onsite and learning the key features of valuable industry tools like ChangeBASE. Participants will be able to attend the most relevant sessions by registering early and reserving their seats in advance.
