One month has passed since Google released Android Studio at the Google I/0 2013 Conference. After the initial fuss has settled, it's time to make some remarks about this new IDE for Android development.
After Google announced its own IDE for Android development based on the IntelliJ platform (let's face it, as the name suggests, it's the most intelligent IDE for Java programmers), I was quite optimistic and happy about this exciting news. So I made some coffee, opened a fresh box of Domaćica cookies and downloaded the IDE from their official website.
The new iOS7 was presented yesterday. What do the folks at Infinum think about it?
The new iOS7 was presented yesterday at WWDC. As always with the radical changes that Apple makes, I'm expecting a plethora of different opinions and impressions, so I wanted to hear what some of the people at Infinum have to say about it, based on the WWDC presentation and iOS7 beta we installed on some devices.
Last week, we visited Shift Split 2013, a european conference about startups dubbed "The Cannes of the IT industry".
Ivan Burazin (of CodeAnywhere and Procedo fame) has been a long-time friend of Infinum. We value the work he's doing, and the entrepeneur spirit he's always embodied. So when he said he's going to organize a conference with the tagline "The Cannes of the IT industry", we knew this would be something special.
We hosted a Doors open event for students yesterday. It was a cool chance for students to see how a software design and development shop operates. And we had Rakia.
As a student, you mostly don't have any idea how a proper workday looks like. Over 60 future designers and developers visited our Zagreb office yesterday, and got a glimpse of the everyday work-life at Infinum.
Still smoking hot and fresh out of the printing press, here they are, our new business cards.
Alongside the new brand refresh we have going on in the past few months, we went out and redesigned our business cards. Hope you like them!
We would like to remind the students that all the hard work they put in, blood, sweat and tears during their college days are not in vain, not at all.
Besides the official recognition in the form of graduation ceremony, there are many great things waiting for them, just behind closed doors.
If you can't drive Formula 1 cars or visit races, at least you can test your predictions skills right from your armchair!
Formula 1 is a very exciting and expensive sport, both for the drivers & teams as well as spectators. While the official website offers a lot of technical information, it lacks any additional excitement. So what's a formula-1-fan-slash-adrenaline junky to do?
If you want to find bugs in your software before the user does, you need to test on a respectable set of real world devices. In other words - you need a decent test lab. What do you need to build a good test lab? Read on.
Software needs testing
Modern software tends to be reasonably complex with many dependencies and different use case scenarios. Because of that, there is a reasonably high chance that some sort of defect has snuck into an application. That's where testing steps in.
To quote the famous Dutch computer scientist Dijkstra:
Program testing can be used to show the presence of bugs, but never to show their absence!
That being said, the goal of testing is to find as many bugs as can be found.
The future is here. Making our new site work properly across a variety of different mobile and tablet devices was a challenge, but one worth taking on.
Responsive web design (RWD) has been around for some time now. Analyzing the stats from our old site, we were getting around 30-40% traffic from mobile devices and this figure just kept growing. We knew we had to optimize our new site for mobile, and responsive web design was obviously the ticket.
Good news everyone! We have a new site, and it's leaking awesomeness all over desktops, mobile phones and tablets.
Where we come from they say that the shoemaker wears the worst shoes. All too often, this is true in other professions. You get so tied up in your day-to-day work (which is building stuff for clients), that you never get around to building stuff for yourself. We had to change that.
