Just in time for the New Year, Citrix Chained Reboot Scripts now support Citrix Cloud and Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (CVAD) 7 1811!

One online protagonist (who shall remain nameless) reached out to see if Citrix Cloud Apps and Desktops Service with Windows Server 2019 worked as advertised, and was just as easy to implement. To which my thought was, I don't see why not, Citrix Cloud is Agile, DevOps oriented, evergreen and even more leading edge in the development cycles than its on-prem brethren, it should be a snap!

Register Now and Join Us for the Bay Area Citrix User Group Kickoff Meeting, Wednesday June 27th 2018!

In 2013 a number of colleagues and I helped build a local following with a Bay Area Citrix User Group, which met regularly at the Citrix offices in Santa Clara.
