Free Citrix XenDesktop 7 Boot Camp

Today Citrix finally released Citrix XenDesktop 7 together with Provisioning Services 7, Profile Manager 5, Citrix Receiver 4, StoreFront 2 and more.

I’ve been playing with Citrix XenDesktop 7 in the lab for quite some time + a lot of hands-on time with the latest build at Citrix Synergy.

More than 15.000 people have gone through my free Citrix XenApp Training which was based upon Citrix XenApp 6 for Windows 2008.

So needless to say, it’s time for some new awesome training. Say goodbye to Reverse Imaging and all the hassle with updating Provisioning Services Target Device Software and XenServer / VMware / Hyper-V tools.

This Citrix XenDesktop 7 Boot Camp isn’t a 15 minute video on YouTube showing you how to click next – next – finish. This free Boot Camp will show you how it’s done in the real world.
