  • Going to Akademy, too.

    By on July 1, 2010

    After skipping the two last years I can’t help but attending Akademy again. Our company just released version 4.0* of our test tool Squish so I’m a bit more relaxed when it comes to thinking of hobbies I should have. Also time to meet up with KDE contributors I...

  • The Quarter of Tradeshows

    By on November 2, 2009

    The fourth quarter of 2009 is a busy month in terms of tradeshows for us. The most busiest so far. I started out with Qt Developers Days in Munich on October 14th and 15th. The event had a record-breaking number of attendees I believe and we had many interested...

  • CocoaHeads Hamburg

    By on May 29, 2009

    I was yesterday on my first CocoaHeads meeting in Hamburg. Depending on the counting it was the first or second meeting in Hamburg altogether (see the CocoaHeads bei mindmatters post for the details on the meeting prior to that one yesterday).

  • Tracing functions with Instruments

    By on March 27, 2009

    In Squish we need to intercept the events when recording user interactions and on play back we have to send the events again. So we have to know some details on how the event system in the toolkits work. To get those details, it is sometimes helpful if you...

  • Automated Qt GUI testing on Maemo

    By on March 3, 2009

    Hi! Since acquiring Trolltech, Nokia is really pushing Qt to all kinds of platforms and devices. This perfectly makes sense considering the gains of having to create the GUIs only once for all different platforms and devices (desktop and embedded) by using the Qt framework. Historically, and also when...

  • Peeping Toms in Amsterdam

    By on December 6, 2008

    Travelling by plane is getting a bigger nuisance each year. Airports accepting more flights and passengers than they can logistically handle and excessive and repeated security checks causing long waiting lines and missed flights. The sight (and personal feeling) of passengers being shooed through check points by shouting security...

  • Translucent scrollbars

    By on October 30, 2008

    Postponing support for SMIL attribute ‘fill=”scroll”‘ for a long time, I now really needed this feature for extending the Atom feed support in KMPlayer. KMPlayer comes with a flash player backend and supporting the Youtube feeds was just a too low hanging fruit to not implement. Anyhow, to ensure...
