As sure as this Minnesota winter will never end, the Tech Update is coming back to Citrix Synergy.

(Seriously, getting a blizzard in mid-April is ridiculous. Yes, I know. I live in Minnesota. I should be used to this. But this is insane! Winter is not supposed to be this long. We are not supposed to get 20+ inches of snow in April. ARGH!)

OK, now I feel better.

I try to be positive, always looking on the bright side of things. All of this late-season snow has kept me indoors; I’ve been doing testing, researching, and learning. And for the fourth Synergy in a row, I’m going to provide you with tons of information in 90 minutes, plus some off-the-wall content.

I should have more updates in time for the Tech Update session at Synergy. And this is just one topic.

Get there early. Grab a good seat (and please laugh at my jokes).
