I have long been a fan of IRC and in particular the channel CitrixIRC. CitrixIRC is a community driven real time support channel which exists on the Freenode IRC server. YES… IRC is still around, and not just used for world domination! Freenode is actually the home of hundreds of technical IT channels. Wither it’s technical question, shooting the breeze, or just looking for some career advice CitrixIRC is the place to be. From Netscaler, Cloudbridge, XenMobile to XenApp & XenDesktop this group has you covered.
On Monday March 9th 2015 at 11:00 AM CitrixIRC will be hosting the first of hopefully many webinars by CitrixIRC participants who range the gamut from customers supporting small and large environments, consultants, service providers, Citrix employees as well as even a handful of Citrix CTPs. I have seen many many issues resolved live over the chat channel faster than support will even answer the phone. IRC is not dead so come join the channel with us and get help and give back to the community.
From the blog post on the first webinar
Webinars topics will consist of debates, How To’s, tips from the field, and open discussions to name a few. The goal with the community driven focus is to have these conversations open up to the community, allowing everyone to learn from each others experiences. Panelists and presenters will consist of various industry professionals from the community and will constantly be switched up to always ensure new and exciting content. Real time chat options during the webinar will be either audio, or chat using the CitrixIRC WebChat client . This is a first run, if we get some good feedback we’ll look to host these on a regular basis. We forward to your feedback and contributions!
