Citrix Synergy 2010 – San Francisco

Today is my last work day before I leave to United States, flying until San Francisco to attend Citrix Synergy 2010. Last year I got my tickets but I lost my passport and I wasn’t able to fly until Las Vegas (…). This year, only Iceland’s volcano will be able to stop me 🙂
Synergy is important for me and the key point for me is Citrix XenClient. This is a revolution in the conception of what is a personal computer versus professional computer. I bet this market will explode within 3 years and I see huge business opportunities…

I really look forward this event there is so many people to meet and the schedule promise to be very interesting. Many people I know already book me for different purpose, just meet and hand shake for good instead of sharing over the internet, meeting, work and interviews.

Here is my schedule, if you come to one of these sessions, just come over to say me hello, I’m always glad to meet new people !
