Congratulations to all who completed the Networking pop quiz from Citrix Education!

In late January, we started a 3 quiz series – first starting with a quiz focused on Virtualization, and most recently about Networking. Our last pop quiz on Mobility starts soon, but more on that later. All participants received 15% off a Citrix Education eLearning course, and we selected two winners of each quiz to receive a FREE Citrix Education eLearning course.

To date, nearly 800 participants clicked over to the Citrix Education Facebook page to test their knowledge – and now we’re here to share the results.
