Welcome to our blog about all kind of topics that are related to software development. We blog about:

SOA, BPM, EDA, ECM and all the other buzz words. Beware some post might not be so common as you think. We are not scared to go against main stream thoughts.

Technologies like java, maven, springframework, OSGi and front end technologies and frameworks like jQuery, DWR, Flex.

Finally to make this happen we need tools and of course a Mac (well some of us do). So we blog about that as well.


Deployments with Git and Bash on a Mac

I am creating a number of websites based on wordpress. Up till now I was just hacking the server and hoping that a backup was in place. At a certain moment I accidentally broke the .htaccess file.

My first steps with Gradle: creating a multi module java web project and running it with jetty.

I am a experienced maven user. Sometime I love it, sometimes I hate it. I like it a lot better than ant, but in some situation you would like maven to be easier and more descriptive. The past year there was a lot of fuzz about Gradle. This would give you the best of ant [...]

An evening on the Go

Last Thursday (July 22nd, 2010) Rob Pike, a Principal Engineer at Google, gave a talk at the O’Reilly Open Source conference.

I have just upgraded the wordpress software to version 3. It all seemed to work fine. However I noticed errors in the archive pages.
