Course Overview
Hey, this is Greg Shields, and you found the first course in my learning path on Citrix XenDesktop version 7. 6 and the CCA-V certification. I am author evangelist and a full-time author here at Pluralsight, and this is, I believe, the fifth version of XenDesktop in all its prior forms for which I've filmed training. This one's going to be good. We're doing things just a bit different this time, though, as we map closely to the objectives and tasks that Citrix makes public in their CCA-V exam preparation guide. We're also taking a different approach in that we're not so much talking about building a XenDesktop environment, but rather managing one that's already been constructed. In this first course out of five, I'll be introducing Citrix XenDesktop 7. 6 LTSR, Citrix's first long-term service release for this product. We'll discuss the CCA-V certification, and we'll also talk lightly about the environment you could optionally build if you don't already have a XenDesktop infrastructure to work with. If you've just been handed a XenDesktop environment to manage, 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 manage, maintain, monitor, and troubleshoot that XenDesktop infrastructure. Let's get started.
