Hello again Citrix Community! We’re well into October and Synergy Barcelona will be here before we know it. With my Learning Lab content for the five hour printing workshop nearly finalized, I thought it would prove beneficial to explain what the session will cover (and what it won’t). Five hours may seem like a long time for training at a conference, but there’s so much content that we want to share on printing in XenDesktop and XenApp environments. The training could easily span two or more full days!

Based on the hit five hour printing workshop from Synergy San Francisco earlier this year, we’ve updated and revised the content to reflect attendee and internal feedback as well as the latest product enhancements related to printing. We have over 2.5 hours worth of labs with a focus on real-world concepts that you can apply to your environment the minute you return to the office. And as always, we encourage all attendees to bring and ask questions. It’s your session after all!

Below is a list of the topics we’ll be covering:

-Printing fundamental concepts
-Citrix printing policies and how to configure them
-Printer drivers and driver management
-Tools and useful utilities (work smarter not harder :))
-The latest Citrix printing enhancements
-Hands-on look at an upcoming printing enhancement

So let me cut to the chase and explain why you should plan to attend this session. If you work with XenDesktop and/or XenApp you should attend, period. Printing is a necessity in all environments and it has many factors which need to be controlled. Even if you think you have printing under control in your virtualized environment (few companies truly do), I guarantee you’ll still be able to learn some additional pointers while experiencing first-hand what the future of Citrix printing technologies looks like. Plus, we’ll be sure to have some fun along the way. 🙂

If you’re already registered for the session, great! I look forward to seeing you there. For those not registered, we’re already at full capacity though you’ll probably be able to secure a seat by showing up early to the standby queue. Now if you haven’t even registered for Synergy Barcelona 2011 yet, what are you waiting for? Click here to register for the event!

Until Barcelona…
