In two weeks’ time I will be most probably blogging live from VMUG Italy’s User Conference (planned for next April 3rd, 2013 in Milan), but now I am just excited to reveal what has been cooking for the last couple of months!

We’ve been working hard to set up this event and now all the pieces of the jigsaw are in the right place and we’re finally allowed to publish the complete and final Event Agenda.

I would not want to talk about it much, just judge yourself. I can hardly contain the excitement looking at the speakers’s names and at the sessions’ topics.

Don’t forget to register here and also keep in mind that very soon the official User Conference App will be available for iOS and Android devices… we don’t want you to miss a single beat!

So… here is the Agenda!
