It is time for Citrix Synergy, and I will be live-blogging the keynote. You can watch the keynote live at as well. I am sure there will be a focus on mobility, but with the release of XenDesktop and XenApp 7.5, I am excited to see Citrix getting back to the future (again). You can also follow me on Twitter for more updates throughout the conference.

Also, if you are here at the conference, be sure to come by and check out Warren Simondson and myself for the Kitchen magic: take yesterday’s Windows app, add some SDK and mobilize session.
