Those of you who attended Synergy this year may have taken part in our first ever Geek Speak Live, where we ran an “unconference” in parallel with the main event. Folks like Shawn Bass, Doug Brown and Rick Dehlinger got up and spoke about the technical topics on their minds and yours. We also had some open mike sessions as well as Q&A.

Well, the good news is that we will be repeating Geek Speak at our upcoming Citrix Summit that is being held in Orlando on October 26 – 29. A number of the Synergy Geek Speakers have kindly agreed to speak again, and we have agreed on the following topics:

  • VDI vs TS: Rick Dehlinger
  • Pros and Cons of Virtualizing XenApp : Doug Brown
  • The reality of implementing “Green IT”: Charles Aunger
  • Best Practice implementations for Tele-commuters, Home Workers and other “Virtual Workers” – Steve Greenberg

In the true spirit of Geek Speak, I and the speakers would like to hear from you on what you think of these topics, and are there other topics you would want to hear in an unfiltered way? Even if we cannot fit them into the Summit schedule, or you can’t attend Summit because you aren’t a Citrix Partner, they could be added to some upcoming live and virtual Geek Speaks that I am planning. But I’ll keep you in suspense by leaving more on those in an upcoming blog .

So please let me know what you think of the topics we could discuss by posting a reply to this blog.
