I may be biased about how outstanding Synergy was, but I’ve also heard from many enthusiastic attendees that Barcelona 2012 was the best Synergy conference in Europe yet!

Likewise, I might be a bit boastful in stating that all the breakout sessions were great – but no one can argue that many were exceptional, with standing room only audiences. I thought you’d be interested in a list of the most popular breakouts, which ranged from technical deep dives to new product information. As usual, Geek Speak Tonight!, the happy hour event facilitated by CTPs, CTOs and other industry experts, grabbed the number-one ranking! According to one conference survey respondent, Geek Speak Tonight! is the “best session at Synergy! Thanks Kelly & RES for the beer.”

Here are some other attendee comments on the top sessions:

SYN104: “Very good session. I got a much better idea about the topic.”

SYN133: “Excellent product…simplifies management of your Citrix environment!”

SYN220: “Very clear demo of basic architectural information and how to set the product up.”
