Synergy Unplugged 2018 Denver

Citrix Synergy 2018 took place in Anaheim, California in May of this year.  It was a very different keynote with big announcements that caught many off guard.  I think we will look back to this year's event and realize it was the beginning of a new era for the company.

The keynote was filled with lots of announcements of enhancements and new solutions that would be generally available either immediately or in the next 90 days.

In my book, the biggest announcement is the Workspace App.  Think of it as the app you add to your laptop or phone to get access to all of your work stuff.  Technically, it will replace Receiver in the future but it is going to morph into so much more.  Here is a quick video overview.

Workspace App comes to life when combined with the Workspace.  Your Workspace may contain access to Windows or Linux desktops or content (aka files) or maybe you get all your work done using mobile apps on your phone.  Think of all this stuff as your Workspace.

For today's event, Josh @virtualjoshespi and I are excited to break down all the parts and pieces but there is so much going on.  Here are some additional resources to learn more.
