Citrix Synergy 2013 Live Blog

Citrix Synergy is in Anaheim, California this year. With the recent release of Excalibur, it will be interesting to see what is revealed during the keynote. I’ll be live-blogging the keynote this year. Check it out here or on Twitter @JasonConger.

It is time for Citrix Synergy, and I will be live-blogging the keynote. With the recent release of Excalibur, I expect the keynote focus to be a lot around capabilities and features. I also expect to see some more around mobility, networking, and cloud. Be sure to stay tuned here and/or follow me on Twitter.
