  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Dealing with dynamic object names

    By on May 15, 2007

    Now that Squish 3.2 is out I want to write about a scenario where you can take advantage of new Squish 3.2 features. One common problem, esp. when testing web applications, is to identify objects with dynamic parts (such as IDs) in their object names. Usually these properties have...

  • Revision Control with SVN

    By on May 11, 2007

    Today we finally switched to Subversion as our revision control system at work. After using CVS for about ten years, the list of things we didn’t like about it became long enough to justify switching to something different. At first it wasn’t quite clear what that “something different” would...

  • 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...

  • KDE's Panel Vacuum

    By on April 27, 2007

    I’m quite amazed by how technologies which I used to discard as ‘hype’ (like, Solid or Phonon or so) actually seem to work. For real. Maybe I should feel a bit of shame but I don’t since this reflex of being sceptical of projects which have a fancy code...

  • Hello from the JAX 07

    By on April 25, 2007

    We are currently exhibiting at the JAX 07, the largest Germany Java conference and expo. It is certainly the largest expo we have been to and also the conference with the longest opening hours (8:30am – 9:30pm) 😛 The traffic at the booths is average compared to other shows...

  • Always Show a Tooltip with Carbon or Cocoa

    By on April 23, 2007

    I had the following problem on the Mac: in certain circumstances I want to always display a tooltip and change the text of the tooltip as the mouse moves over different objects. So I looked around and I found the Carbon Help Manager Reference. The functions HMDisplayTag() and HMHideTag()...

  • The One True Iterator Declaration

    By on April 20, 2007

    Continueing my rich history of bikeshed-quality blog posts, I proudly present: Three common ways to declare the iterators for iterating over a map: for ( map<string, string>::const_iterator it = map.begin(); it != map.end(); ++it ); Not bad. Unfortunately the line is kinda long, and the .end() function is queried...

  • Squish Qt Webinar

    By on April 20, 2007

    This week we held 2 webcasts in cooperation with Trolltech about testing Qt applications with Squish. Doing such a webcase was certainly a new kind of experience. It is very different from an actual talk at a conference or an on-line conference with prospects where you present a product....
