Most of the Citrix Synergy agenda items are scheduled for a specific date and time. But the Self-paced Learning Labs give you the freedom to select technical training at your convenience and learn at your own pace. These 90-minute hands-on labs offer the ultimate in flexibility: no reservations and no requirement to bring your own laptop, plus generous hours. We’re even making them available all day and into the evening on Tuesday, May 8, so attendees who arrive before the official Synergy kick-off can get a head start on training.
