FROM THE EDITORS VIRTUAL DESK

As I write this I am in the middle of building my new Horizon lab. I hope to have Horizon View, Mirage and Workspace up and running in the new lab by the time you are reading this weeks newsletter. I know many if you have been following what is my very slow progress with this task, with a number of false starts but with some spare time on my hands over the weekend my plans have started to come together.

 

 

It actually started earlier this week when I was privileged to join a number of my customers at the VMware conference in Brisbane and more specifically at the first Architects Bootcamp which was on our End User Computing solutions, namely the Horizon Suite. This kick started my lab into high gear after spending the day learning about our awesome tech and then having discussions later in the week with customers around this.

 

I will keep everyone updated but thus far progress and learning is on track and I am having loads of fun learning the new solutions.

 

You will also notice a few subtle changes to the newsletter from this week. Keen observers will notice a slight change in the formatting and also that then clickable titles also have the proper URL in them as well for reference or to make sure you can always get to the link from any device.

 

I hope these changes make the newsletter a bit easier to read and enjoy each week.

 

Kind Regards
