With years of building large scale web apps, we’ve experienced almost everything that goes right and wrong during software development projects. So we created Milestone Mayhem, a card game that reflects the challenges and successes with app development.
To quote professional zoologist Jim Fowler, “The biggest challenge is how to affect public attitudes and make people care.” When a small startup has a big idea, they run into an even bigger challenge. They want to change the public attitude towards charities and engage people on multiple levels, but it won’t happen unless they come up with a solution. SitePen understood the challenge, and better yet, had the expertise to help the startup be successful.
As the new year starts to unfold, it’s time to take a quick look at the things our team at SitePen resolves to do this year.
Selenium is the leading tool for browser and mobile app automation and functional testing. Each year the Selenium community gets together to talk about emerging trends with Selenium and testing best practices in general. This year’s event was held in London at the Mermaid Theatre along the Thames. The conference provided an excellent opportunity to meet the key members of the Selenium team and other people and companies focused on testing. Here are some highlights from this year’s conference.
The TypeScript team has just announced the release of TypeScript 2.1 which contains several long-awaited features (pun intended) for Dojo 2. Rather than repeating the excellent summary from the TypeScript team, we’ll look at how a few of these features will improve Dojo 2!
Now in its 7th year, Web Summit is the world’s largest web conference, with more than 50,000 people in attendance. The conference possibly draws inspiration from SXSW Interactive, with a European twist. Each year it brings an impressive agenda of speakers and attendees from around the world. It has become an event that attracts startups and established companies, making it a hot spot to meet many people in the tech industry.
This October, we delivered meetup talks on WebVR in London and Phoenix on the same day to share our early efforts in exploring WebVR with TypeScript, Dojo 2, Intern, and A-Frame.
What is WebVR?
The official name of the rebranded and relaunched merging of the jQuery Foundation and the Dojo Foundation is the JS Foundation. SitePen is excited to be a member of this new organization!
