  • Keyword driven test

    By on April 22, 2008

    I will today abuse this blog to publish some work without having to write documentation for it. While demonstrating Squish in web demos and at conferences I often get asked about keyword driven testing. Due to the powerful scripting features of Squish, this is quite easy to do with...

    With the application deadline for this year’s Google Summer of Code being over now (and the list of accepted projects to be published soon) I’d like to point those looking to make a bit of money working on Open Source software to another initiative. Matt’s Bargain Basement Summer Of...

  • Viki: a personal wiki for Vim

    By on February 19, 2008

    For a long time I had problems finding a way to organize arbitrary snippets of information on my computer. I tried several things from simply storing arbitrary text files in the normal directory structure to trying out various note-kepping programs. I even considered writing one of my own. Several...

  • MacVim

    By on February 15, 2008

    I am long-time vim user. For some years I also use a Mac. Last year I discovered the MacVim project. This is a Cocoa based GUI to vim (so far there was only gvim on the Mac, a Carbon based GUI). The Carbon gvim is not that great so...

  • Why I write (almost) no blogs

    By on February 15, 2008

    When I commute to work I typically listen to podcasts. My favorite podcast is Chaosradio Express, a podcast in German about technology (often with social aspects on it as well). In its latest episode Moderne Webentwicklung Tim Pritlove (the host of the podcast) talks with the two developers of...

  • Committing into multiple KDE branches

    By on February 7, 2008

    A while ago, KDE branched the 4.0.x releases into their own subversion branch directory. This reminded me that I’ve been using a little script for a while which comes in quite handy when you want to commit a patch to multiple branches. The script is called ‘ilc’ (which originally...

  • Hamburg's KDE4 Release Party

    By on January 21, 2008

    Last friday a few fellow KDE-attached colleagues and me made our way to the KDE4 release party which was held at the mighty fine offices of freiheit.com. Since there wasn’t much time left for Sven to organize the whole thing,  I was (more than) sceptical that there would be...

  • "Sold Out" Hanseatic KDE Party

    By on January 19, 2008

    When the car* manned with our delegation of KDE developers paved its way through the dark and rainy streets of Hamburg I was expecting at most 10 guests (including us) to show up at the local branch of the worldwide KDE 4 release party. The place was crowded! The...

  • KDE 4 Release Party in Hamburg

    By on January 14, 2008

    Is the Swedish tradition of throwing “used” Christmas trees out of the window on a certain day a real one? That’s what a commercial of the furniture store IKEA wants us to believe at least. I don’t know which day would have been the right one but it was...

  • Plasmoids everywhere

    By on November 3, 2007

    KDE 4 is all about clocks. As I did not want to miss them while browsing the Net I sat down and extended Frerich’s Plasmoid Viewer code (a Workspace utility) to not only be a standalone program but also come along as a KPart. It can be embedded into...

  • The KHTML Future FAQ

    By on October 23, 2007

    As people on #khtml and elsewhere keep asking the same type of questions I will summarize some of the answers that I can give and which – to my best knowledge – should match the view of other maintainers. This is to inform contributors, bug reporters, other helpers and...

    By on October 18, 2007

    A common problem when developing test scripts for Qt application is that some table should be checked for whether it contains the correct data. In particular, the expected data is stored in an external file and the test script should load the file and then compare its contents against...

    We returned from the first of two Trolltech Developer Day’s events on Friday evening. There surely are many theories on how to best fight the jet lag but I dediced to simply do what my body asked for and gave in on any of the sudden urges to sleep...

  • Finalized return from aKademy

    By on July 12, 2007

    This year’s KDE conference was again worthwhile going to. Wish I had been able to stay longer. Talks were good and seeing familiar and new faces proved to be very nice again. I might be in the minority but in my opinion the initial lack of an Internet connection...
