  • Webinale

    By on May 23, 2007

    Today’s the third, and last, day of our stay at the Webinale Conference. Squish is still a rather new and unknown contender in the AJAX world but it turned out that this is not a disadvantage. In fact, the whole scene is moving so quickly that there’s always something new (sometimes useless and over-hyped, sometimes interesting) and something else is

  • Webinale 07

    By on May 21, 2007

    In about 3 hours, Frerich and I will fly to Stuttgart for the Webinale 07 conference – a two-day German Ajax/Web 2.0 conference and exhibition. We will man a booth there to show off Squish 3.2 (specifically the Web edition). Tomorrow (May 22nd) at 10:30 I will give a talk on automated Web/Ajax testing where I will talk about the

  • Dealing with dynamic object names

  • Revision Control with SVN

At first it wasn’t quite clear what that “something different” would be; many KDE people (mainly from the Linux camp) suggested to

  • New offices

    By on May 8, 2007

    With our latest addition to our team (say hi to Rob!) we reached the space-limit of our current office. Actually considering that Harri and me are sitting together in the meeting/lunch room I’d rather say that we grew out of it already. At least nobody can waste time in meetings this way 😛 So we looked for new offices and
