Citrix Partner Exchange 2010 (Bussum, NL)


On Wednesday april 7th I joined 1000 other people at the combined Partner Exchange and Solution Seminar by Citrix Benelux in Bussum (NL).

The seminar was focused on desktop virtualization and unfortunately for abroad readers all sessions where in Dutch (NL).

All the sessions where recorded and are available for playback at

The sessions I attended:

1. Keynote ‘Rethink the desktop’ by Peter van Leest (video pdf)

2. What’s next for XenApp and beyond by Andreas van Wingerden (video | pdf )

3. Synergy Berlin by Ed Bezooijen (video)

4. Migrating you XenApp implementation to a virtual desktop architecture – the easy way! by Jan Christoffels (video | powerpoint)

5. XenDesktop: Delivery of pooled and assigned virtual desktops including advanced Desktop Group Management by Martijn Bosschaart and Albert Kramer (video | powerpoint)

6. Take you virtual desktops with you – XenClient makes XenDesktop mobile by Stefan Pieters and Martijn Bosschaart (powerpoint)

There was a fuzz on the release date which was mentioned. This presentation is the only session not available on video, luckily I brought my Flip Mino ;-). Below is the piece about the release date:

Release Date XenClient @ Citrix PEX NL

7. Making IT as easy as iTunes by Andreas van Wingerden (video)
In this presentation there was quite some time reserved for a demo with the Citrix Receiver for iPad and XenDesktop see pictures below (XP on iPad).

It was a useful day and nice to meet some peers!
