Citrix Synergy 2017: Introducing the Inaugural Citrix Workspace IoT Makerspace

Citrix Synergy 2017 Orlando is fast approaching. While the core of the conference activities run May 23-25, there are also fantastic activities that get occur before the main show starts. One of these pre-conference activities is the Citrix Synergy Learning Labs. These hands-on sessions give you a chance to get your hands dirty, digging deep into Citrix technology with access to Citrix resources to help you along.

At the Learning Labs this year, I want to draw your attention to a something entirely new and unique: the first ever Workspace IoT Makerspace. For those of you unfamiliar with makerspaces, traditionally they are collaboration spaces often found in schools, libraries, or some sort of teamwork space that provides broad access to the young and to the old. And the goal of a makerspace is to provide a space for learning about some sort of technology (high tech or basic tech), and then using that technology to make something tangible with your own hands. Given how easily the Internet of Things (IoT) lends itself to small things and gadgets, IoT and makerspaces often go hand in hand.

We thought a makerspace would be the perfect way to allow Citrix customers to get hands on experience with Workspace IoT. We have, in previous blog posts and articles, defined Citrix Workspace IoT as a mechanism to connect Citrix Workspaces with the apps, data, devices, things and people that exist within the digital business. Our first Workspace IoT makerspace will immerse you right into that intersection of apps, data, devices and things within the digital business context. We will have a variety of ‘things’ on hand, and we will start the makerspace detailing how you can use the Citrix Octoblu IoT platform to integrate every day web apps and things together, progressing to how you can build your own smart collaborative/meeting space.
