A nagy Brian Madden cikkgyűjtemény

Régóta lelkes olvasója vagyok Brian Madden blogjának. Egy megbeszélésre készülve össze kellett gyűjtenem a legfontosabb cikkek listáját. Jóval hosszabb lett, mint gondoltam, de megéri átböngészni őket. Az elmúlt két éve termése – Minden (OK. Majdnem minden), amit a VDI-ról tudni kell vagy érdemes. A személyes kedvenceimet kiemeltem, a cikkeket pedig két csokorba szedtem: az elsőbe a technológiai és/vagy elméleti stratégiai kérdésekről szóló cikkek kerültek, a másodikba egyik vagy másik gyártó, vagy annak egy terméke került fókuszba.
