Official Citrix training at Arrow ECS

As some of you might know, I’m an independent consultant and trainer (Citrix Certified Instructor – CCI). These recent years as an independent consultant, haven’t left as much time to teach classes. But I’m quite often asked if and when I’m teaching my next class.

I have a great arrangement with Arrow ECS in Denmark, where I continuing in 2010 will teach classes in Citrix XenApp.

At the moment the following dates is planned:

  • CXA-201-2I: Implementing Citrix XenApp 5.0 for Windows Server 2008
    • Januar 18-22. in Copenhagen (the class is delivered in danish)

I will update this post when new dates are scheduled.

If you are interested in attending one of my classes please let me know.

GoToMyPC – for Mac

Most of you guys have properly heard about Citrix GoToMyPC, soon a new version is released that could be named GoToMyMac.

These last weeks I have been beta-testing Citrix’s last GoTo-product – The Citrix GoToMyPC version for Mac.

GoToMyPC is a cool product that allow users to connect remotely to their home or office computer without any special configuration.

The only thing needed is the installation of the GoToMyPC client and your up and running. (If you want to know more about how it works check this out: https://www.gotomypc.com/en_US/ourTechnology.tmpl)

Until now Citrix’s GoToMyPC has only been available for PC’s, but in 2 day the official Mac beta ends and a new flavor will see the light of day.

With GoToMyPC for Mac Citrix is adding Mac support :-). Users will now be able to remote control Mac-to-Mac, PC-to-Mac, Mac-to-PC or PC-to-PC.

I have done some testing with the beta and I personally find that very cool. I actually planned to make a screencast, to show some of the features in the beta, but now I’m going to wait for the final version.

If you want to have a quick look before the beta ends and maybe even get in on a special discount hurry over and sign up: https://www.gotomypc.com/mm/g25misc_macbeta.tmpl

I’m really looking forward to the final release and will get back with more info.

Citrix Receiver for Android Tech Preview

The long anticipated Citrix Receiver for Android is now in Tech Preview (Version 0.9).

If you are the lucky owner of an Android-based cellphone you can now download and test the software. All you have to do is to use the two-dimensional barcode with the barcode scanner on your phone. The QR code to the right hold the information about the needed software.

Unfortunately I don’t own an Android phone myself, but I really can’t wait to test this out
