Geek Speak Live
Geek Speak Live! was one of the most popular and lively tracks at Synergy, where geeks could get their geek on, techies could show their stuff and audience members could enjoy friendly but “no holds barred” debates on a variety of technical topics. Rapid-fire interactions enabled attendees to get fully involved in the topic.
The Synergy agenda offered two programs:
Geek Speak Tonight!: At this happy hour event, the first activity on the Synergy agenda, Citrix Technology Professionals (CTPs), CTOs and other industry thought leaders engaged in a lively discussion on compelling technical topics.
This year, Geek Speak Tonight! added a twist called "Fact or Not? You Be the Judge." Everyone received two colored cards - one green and one red. When a question was posed or a statement made, everyone, including the panelists, could vote on the response. People who thought the response was factual, true or a great idea held up their green card. Those who believed it was false or improbable displayed their red card.
- Geek Speak Live! Track: This series of open, unfiltered sessions covering a variety of technical topics ran concurrently with the regular Synergy breakout session tracks, giving attendees a chance to participate in in-depth technical discussions.
