My Synergy Agenda

by Daniel Feller, Citrix

As a XenApp/XenDesktop techie, I’m always looking for those sessions where I will learn something.  I want to hear about what people have seen or done with technology.  I want to know what is coming soon. I want to know what is possible.

That is how I craft my Citrix Synergy agenda.  Based on that, this is my Synergy 2017 agenda (if I didn’t have to present).
