I don’t know what it is about top ten lists: I can never stick to just ten.  This time, my reasoning is solid: the content at Citrix Synergy 2015 in Orlando was too valuable to limit to ten.

When you see the level of training offered in these technical breakout sessions, I think you’ll agree that 11 was a much better choice.

Based on attendee survey comments—along with the numbers who attended both on-site and online via the live stream—I’ve compiled a list of the most in-demand sessions from Synergy, followed by selected feedback from attendees.

Best of all, you can watch these sessions on-demand on SynergyTV: the exclusive conference channel also features the Opening Keynote, the General Session with Tech Talks and demos, and a seven-program hosted series with analysis, in-depth interviews and behind-the-scenes accounts of important events.

Extend the technical training from Synergy, and dive in to these in-depth sessions on-demand, on your schedule:
