Come join us! Calgary Citrix User Group Local Kickoff Meeting

I've entered into a new venture into IT user group communities by helping form the Citrix User Group Community for Calgary headed by Rod MacCormack. We saw the need to get the local Citrix community reestablished so that Citrix professionals could get together and share their experiences while keeping updated on the latest trends with the technologies they work with on a day to day basis. Essentially our goal is to allow our user base to build their knowledge on Citrix and Citrix related products so they can better perform their job.

Now that we have finally got all the initial logistics out of the way our first event will take place at Craft Beer Market on Thursday, June 8. Our sponsor this round is Nutanix, and they will be present for a technical presentation on their latest offerings for VDI. Citrix will also be present to recap some of the announcements from Synergy. We will also have room for open table discussions so we can all get to know each other, share experiences, and of course ask questions!

We also have giveaways. food and refreshments so be sure to pop by.

Monday, 1 May 2017 - Monthly Newsletter - April 2017

I know, sometimes I suck at self-promotion, but I will post the summary each month to the blog going forward so if you don't subscribe you might check out the newsletter if there is a topic or two of interest. So let's kick things off with the intro to the April 2017 newsletter.

Hello and welcome to the next edition of the newsletter. I’ve picked a couple of topics in the news this month by looking at some new developments at FSLogix where they have a solution focused on Office365 users. VMware has an upgrade out for customers that add some enhancements to their server virtualization platform. After the articles of the month, I will look at hypervisor security since I think there is some work to be done in this area.
