Citrix Synergy 2015 – Day 1

WP_000554Counting down finished! I’m just sitting and waiting for Keynote session by Mark Templeton, Citrix CEO.  — That is how I started writing this blog post almost 14 days ago. It took me a while to write a review of 1st day but finally you can read it!

Let’s start from the scratch. As I wrote in the previous post (Day 0) getting to Orlando, FL took me over 13 hours so you can imagine how excited I was to finally take part in Synergy conference. I was amazed by the size of the Orange County Conference Center and really shocked by the number of people. It was announced later during the conference that this year edition was the biggest one in the history. You could especially see that after entering the hall where Keynote session led by Mark Templeton was taking place. The hall was huge and the number of crowds was really amazing. I had no idea that so many people work with Citrix technologies and they are interested to come and spend 3 days listening about them. My first felling was: “That’s for sure America”. Everything was big – big conference center, huge Keynote hall and of course a stage with extremely large display on which Synergy TV was displayed. That was truly American style event 😀 You can see it below! Continue reading

Citrix Synergy 2015 – Day 0

This yearWP_000440 I have a great opportunity to participate in Citrix Synergy conference. It is organised every year by Citrix and this time it takes place in Orlando, FL. The conference starts officially tomorrow but already today there were hundreds of people working on finishing preparation to the conference. I flied to Orlando by Frankfurt and I have met tens of people with Citirx bags, T-shirts or talking about Citrix technologies. That made me wonder one more time why Citrix resigned from organising a European edition of the conference. For sure they would have hundreds of people interested. Not everyone can afford buying travel to US and conference pass. Of course in one of his posts Neil Spelling showed how to do that cheaper (http://neil.spellings.net/2015/02/25/my-guide-to-citrix-synergy-on-a-budgeta-hotel-group-booking-offer/), but still it is some expense for all of us. So Citrix please come back to Europe – I can propose Krakow for the next place of Citrix Synergy Europe edition – we have great conference center (http://www.icekrakow.pl/). Continue reading
