Application virtualization, IoT and Cloud Computing, Blog of Sacha Thomet

About me

Sacha Thomet is blogging here … A EUC-Geek who likes to share knowledge. I’m working for more than 10 years with EUC technologies, mainly specialized Citrix products and more than 15 years in IT.

I’m not a programmer but I love scripting, started with DOS command-line (*.bat, *.cmd) continued with VB-Script (*.vbs) and now since 2013 also PowerShell. I love the coexistence from Windows, Mac, Linux, and other Operating Systems. This is an aspect that makes Citrix products so indispensable and gives the chance to use every operating system where it’s the best place.

Even when I’m mainly specialized in Citrix products some articles are about tools or other parts in the EUC ecosystem. Beside Scripts for EUC/Citrix things you can also find here articles about home automation or IoT, or sometimes Non-EUC related articles about Tech stuff in my daily life.

And yes I’m certified, I’m a Citrix Certified Integration Architect for Virtualization (CCIA),  and Citrix Certified Expert – Virtualization (CCE-V on XenDesktop 7.x). For Networking I have the Citrix Certified Associate Level.
In February 2016 I received the Citrix Technology Professional (CTP) Award which was renewed in the last years.

Language … 

I’m born and raised in Switzerland, my mother tongue is the Bernese dialect of Swiss-German. The first foreign language that I’ve learned is the “real” German, the second language I was skilled is French.

And I know my “swiss-german-english” is far away from perfect, but that’s the way to reach a bigger community with this blog.
