As most developers know, it is hard to design and implement software against a moving target. For quite some time larger applications have been built on […]

Project Testing - Measure Twice, Cut Once

Quality assurance and testing for marketing-driven technical projects is something that must be taken seriously. Since most marketing-driven technical projects are on tight deadlines, it is important to test as early and often as possible. The extra testing, and the assurance that comes with it, is made possible by an agile programming process. Many marketing-driven […]

Buzz Words Demystified! Episode 5: The Cloud

Football stadiums are an interesting study. They cost hundreds of millions of dollars to build and usually sit on the most prime real estate in a major city.
