Swedish Azure Virtual Desktop Meetup
SEAVDUG – Virtuell Meetup Nr 9
“There are a lot of things happening in the Cloud VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) field and Microsoft is strengthening its position. We have heard that there is some uncertainty around Microsoft and Citrix, so Adam will try to clarify things.

So don’t miss this packed evening and take the opportunity to load up with questions and start some discussions!”
