Se video om den gode brugeroplevelse på mobilen

Kunderne har taget mobile enheder til sig som et indkøbsredskab, og det tvinger medier og butikker til at gentænke den gode brugeroplevelse: Hvad der fungerer på en computerskærm fungerer ikke nødvendigvis på mobilen. Sammen med FDIM satte Vertica på et seminar d. 6. september 2011 fokus på apps og m-commerce. Se video fra seminaret og få Verticas markedschef for strategi og e-business, Lars Christensens råd til at kunne levere brugervenlige mobile løsninger. Lær også at forstå de ændrede forventninger, som er til stede hos kunder og brugere. Vertica: Den gode brugeroplevelse på mobilen from Vertica A/S on Vimeo.

Configure Reality

Configuration in enterprise application is a fact of life. My take on it is as follows: delay it as late as possible and hard-code in anger until someone asks for a change. Then, accepting the fact that is likely to happen again, the value is pushed into configuration. Configuration can be as simple as a collection of key-value pairs. But sometimes, configuration needs to be more complex than key-value pairs; just imagine some sort of hierarchical structure or a simple collection of related values.

NMoneys 2.1.0.0

Not a lot of movement in NMoneys until now. But the unthinkable, has happened: I have received an email notification for a change in the ISO standard for currencies!! After more than two years subscribed I finally received my first amendment newsletter. I totally attribute this event to changes in the maintenance agency, which changes are very welcome, Excel and XML tables of current and historic currencies, amongst others.

A Little more OSS

As the reader might have notice, I am a big advocate of testing. During the years that I have been practicing some flavor of testing I have been developing, borrowing and using small little classes (or bigger ones) and techniques to make my life easier and my code suck a little less. I have decided that I might as well share them with more people and, who knows, the benefit might become mutual. That, and the fact that my code will be improved as it makes its way into the new projects, is why I am launching Testing.Commons.

NMoneys goes 2.0 and Gets Company

Wow, after a 1.6 version I decided to jump straight to 2.0. Is it that big of a change? Well, not really, maybe a couple of breaking changes and features. But NMoneys 2.0 is just a side dish, the entrée is… NMoneys.Exchange 1.0 Is NMoneys Already Dead? Not a chance! NMoneys.Exchange might steal some of its older brother’s thunder for some time, but NMoneys still plays the star role.

Speaking at NDC 2011

Just two words: W-OW. It has been an absolute an utter blast being part of this conference. The experience has been way better than last year’s and I suspect that being at the other side of the stage has had a lot to do with the result. Despite some bad omen previous to the beginning of the conference I arrived in Oslo (via Copenhagen and, surprisingly, Aalborg) safe and ready to charge the batteries for a busy first day of the conference.

Mama said knock you out!

In my last post I looked at how WCF Web API plays well with JQuery Templates. A former colleague of mine questioned if it could be used in all scenarios. This is a rather broad question, but I do think it can be used for most of your templating needs.  So in this post I will give an example of what can be done just with templates – and then I will take a look at KnockoutJS to make my templating scenario even sweeter.

The End of an Era…

With this dramatic title I mean that something has changed in my gadgetery. After 9 years I am leaving the  Microsoft mobile platform, who knows if for good. 9 years!! That is, in Internet years, like, I don’t know… 3 centuries? half-an-eon? Anyway, a long time it is. I have owned a device with a mobile OS from Microsoft since the first device with Pocket PC 2002 was released. After that, a trustworthy Windows Mobile 2003, a not-so-trustworthy WM6 Professional (I skipped WM5, not that I think missed anything), a pretty stable WM6.1 in a device in which I managed to smuggle a WM6.5.something ROM in. Besides, I have laid my hands onto Windows CE 2.11, PocketPC 2000, and the archaic Smartphone editions. And yeah, I have occasionally borrowed a Windows Phone 7.
