Last week I worked on some integration tests in Selenium. Today I’m redoing the same test in WatiN to get a feel for both tools.
Since the application uses TinyMCE for most of it’s text inputs I had to find a way to write to it within the tests.… Fortsätt läsa

Before I started pairing I often felt that there was a gap between business and development -departments. Communication was mostly done via bug trackers or specifications. Issues were ofter dealt with via e-mail and misconceptions were common.
Since I started pairing I feel a greater (not perfect but better!) contact to the business and I think it’s because I’m used to take discussions.… Fortsätt läsa

On the latest LugRadio (Season 4, Episode 2 – listen to it if you haven’t) they discussed how to get people to contribute to Open Source projects in greater extent. Early on in the discussion somebody mentioned why people start reading mailing list, creating accounts on the wiki, the forums or whatever system that project uses for contributing and gets stuck there.… Fortsätt läsa
In the last semester at the IT University I wrote my Bachelor Thesis together with Peter Thorin. We evaluated the maturity of a Microsoft tool for model driven development called Microsoft Domain-Specific Languge Tools (DSL Tools).
The work included building a MetaModel for Service-Oriented Architectures (SOA) using DSL Tools and compare the results, both in the time it took to develop the MetaModel and the number of elements in our language, with existing studies on similar techniques (UML MetaModel extensions and UML Profiles).… Fortsätt läsa
