• Defining an efficient documentation structure

    Any type of project or application will always create a certain amount of documents & written information. This is not any different at Foreach.  We have documentation spaces for several customers/applications/projects and recently we decided to have a more in-depth look at how we use them. The objective was to improve our documentation approach, as we felt we were having some issues left and right.  In this article I try to describe the approach we took and the result that came out of it.  But to understand where we're coming from it's probably best to give a bit more background on how we work.

  • Stash Push Email Notifier

    VCS (Version Control Systems) have come a long way, I remember the time of exchanging floppy disks with source files, not being sure which version was actually the correct one. At work I've met the worse VCS' like CVS, Visual SourceSafe (oh dear!), but quite quickly we moved to Subversion as it became the more standard VCS around the internet.

  • Ramblings of an agile enthusiast

    The continuous fruition of new opportunities created by emerging markets and the need for solutions to previously unexplored (or non-existing) problems has long ago created a blissful environment for sofware developers and customers alike. Considering this, the improvements made in both physical technology and means of communication have made it possible for developers to think about and create these solutions.Doubly so because there is an ever-increasing demand by end-users, content providers, service providers, resellers etc. to make good use of these solutions.

  • Prototyping as a tool for functional analysis.

    As a functional analyst for web development projects, I have seen my role evolve over time. Coming from school and working on a first job, you tend to follow the guidelines you have been taught or those that are expected by your employer. A few years in, I have developed my own style due to changes in techniques and the release of tools to support those techniques.

  • Designing and building apps cross-tablet?

    Over the next couple of months we will see a variety of tablets showing up in the stores. Ranging from end-consumer overall iPad competitors like the Samsung Galaxy Tab to enterprise-only devices like the Avaya Flare.

    These new tablets will mostly have differing sets of specifications packed onto a number of different operating systems.  However, there are a couple of common specifications we can safely expect in these newcomers
