But seriously, getting our streaming profilers up and running was relatively easy. We managed to get streamed applications working as soon as we got our xenapp active. Although yes, as any other typical Citrix product, there were hiccups here and there, the amount of frustration we got from setting up hosted applications was unbeatable.
[I'd like to remind you that we had no prior experience with Citrix products. We really started from scratch scratch. I have no idea how many Citrix white papers and articles we shoved down our throats. And how we did it.]
To cut the long story short, after weeks and weeks of research, suspicions over our licensing, error messages, and frustration, we got our hosted apps running beautifully. And guess what the problem all this time was? XENAPP HOTFIX! *shakesfists
Obviously there's one particular reason why we wanted our apps hosted. What else if not support for Apple iPad? [May Steve Jobs rest in peace.]
So here, please take a peek at Software Loan Portal in action - on an iPad! Since we're computer engineers [wannabe], what can be better to kick off the demo than running a humble compiler like codeblocks? [Commemorating 2 semesters of C++, and may Dennis Ritchie rest in peace.]
It's about time to surprise that person sitting next to you on the subway. Get him to think you're playing angry birds while actually... you're coding your OOP mini project that is due in 5 hours!
