With all the Summit & Synergy madness going on you might have overlooked or missed the latest education / training news from Citrix (www.citrix.com/tv). Yesterday Citrix revealed their new Excalibur training roadmap or the ‘Excalibur Learning Journey’ as they like to call it, see below. It includes two introduction level courses (among others) of two hours each. The first one explains what Excalibur is all about and walks you through some of its new and improved features, the other one points out some useful tips and tricks to work with right from the get go. Both are here to help you decide to go with Excalibur right away or to wait another month or two :-) There might be a small fee to pay, not a 100% sure yet.
Next there are three support level courses of five days each targeted primarily at Service Desk representatives and junior to medior System Administrators. And last but not least three architect / implement level courses (also five days each) recommended for Consultants, Senior Administrators, ICT Architects and the like. Personally I can’t wait to jump in!
The screenshot is taken from a Citrix (learning) instruction video hosted by Citrix’s Master CCI Mark Simmons. Unfortunately the video is no longer available, check training.citrix.com for more information on the available XenDesktop 7 courses. You will need your My Citrix credentials to log in. They also offer a free XenDesktop 7 Introduction course which can be taken online, it will take you about two hours to finish. The latest from Synergy is that Citrix Profiling (application streaming) is no longer supported in Excalibur, it’s all App-V from here on. What’s next..? I just had a look on the Training.Citrix.com website, it’s still called Excalibur although a name change is likely to follow the Keynote.
