The annual European Mikrotik User Meeting (MUM) was held in Vienna, Austria on 7-8 March. This conference on MikroTik RouterOS software and RouterBOARD hardware is a great opportunity to meet the MikroTik team, distributors, certified trainers and consultants. The best part was, however, the opportunity to interact with all kinds of like-minded users from all over the globe involved with using Mikrotik products. Though there are a number of MUM's happening throughout the year and around the world, the European MUM is considered the main event due to the fact that Mikrotik announces their product plans for the upcoming year.
