Description

Whether you're new to Citrix, or have worked with it's many versions, you're aware of how large and complex a beast any XenDesktop implementation can be. Very different from other solutions, you almost have to know everything about XenDesktop to truly appreciate...well...anything about XenDesktop. It's for that reason that this learning path breaks apart the topics in installing and managing XenDesktop into one course for each of it's major components. In this first course out of seven, Citrix XenDesktop 7.15 LTSR: Introduction, you'll first get an introduction to Citrix XenDesktop 7.15 LTSR -- Citrix's second "Long Term Service Release" for XenDesktop. Next, you'll explore these courses' subtle alignment with the CCA-V and CCP-V certifications. Finally, you'll discover the virtual machines you'll want to build if you plan on following along. By the time you've finished, you'll be ready to start building your own XenDesktop infrastructure as you progress through the learning path.

Course Overview
Hey, this is Greg Shields, and you've found the first course in my learning path on Installing and Managing Citrix XenDesktop version 7. 15 LTSR. I am author evangelist and a full-time author here at Pluralsight, and I've been building, managing, and helping others with Citrix environments since the days this product was known as WinFrame. Whether you're new to Citrix or have worked with its many versions, you're aware of how large and complex a beast any XenDesktop implementation can be. Very different from other solutions, you almost have to know everything about XenDesktop to truly appreciate, well, anything about XenDesktop. It's for that reason that this learning path breaks apart the topics in installing and managing XenDesktop into one course for each of its major components. In this first course out of seven, I'll be introducing Citrix XenDesktop 7. 15 LTSR, Citrix's second long-term service release for XenDesktop. We'll discuss these courses' very subtle alignment with the CCA-V and CCP-V certifications and explore the virtual machines you'll want to build if you plan on following along. If you've just been tasked with building a new Citrix XenDesktop environment, this course is your first stop in brushing up on those skills for success. And then from here, you'll be ready to continue on the learning path as we explore Delivery Controller, Machine Creation Services, Provisioning Services, StoreFront, Receiver, and NetScaler, Policies and Profiles, and Citrix Director. Let's get started.
