I’ve been wanting to convert my site to a single-page design and after working on this on & off for the last several weeks, I’m glad to have the site finally d-o-n-e.

Been a long time...

It sure has been a long time since the last time I updated my blog. Here are the different things that have been occupying me in these last couple of months:

Excellent book on web usability

One of the things I’ve been enjoying about work since I made the switch last November is being able to get my hands dirty with front-end web development and being able to work on things that directly impact the usability of the application. It’s been fun designing and writing code that will allow our clients to have an easy & efficient way of interacting with our software. It’s been challenging as well–such as trying to make the front-end behave the way I want it to in IE 6. I can’t believe some (a whole lot) people still use IE 6 but there’s not much I/we can do about it, at least for the moment.

User Interface Design 090

Do you remember how in college there were classes that were actually below 100-level? The classes that some folks were required to take but they didn’t count for any credits? Well, in trying to come up with a decent title for this blog post, I thought I’d throw in a 090 at the end of the title there since this post will be, in some ways, kinda like those sub-100 level classes. Simple (or simplistic, even), easy, basic-knowledge kinda stuff.

Making the Most Out of Band Rehearsals

Band rehearsals–some love ‘em, some hate ‘em, but there’s no denying that they are very much necessary, even for bands that are comprised of phenomenal musicians. Since 1997, I’ve had to partake in many band rehearsals–about 700 or so (a very rough estimate)–99.9% of them having been with bands that are associated with churches or para-church organizations. I wanted to take some time to write down various tips on making the most out of band rehearsals–tips that have (and still do) helped me and hopefully will help you/your band/your church as well.

Lessons learned from being in the shoes of QA

At work we have a huge product release coming up very soon. There are a lot of new features to the application, which means that there has been a ton of changes to the code, which has meant a lot of hours for testing. As a result, I’ve been having to help test–in volumes I don’t think I have yet in my software development career. I’ve had to run the application through a variety of test scenarios as well as going back to bugs and verifying that they, in fact, have been fixed. In the last week or so, that’s where 90% of my time has been spent. While I’m a little sad about not being able to code nearly as much as I’d like to at work, I’m glad for the lessons I’ve been able to learn in my very brief stint as a QA personnel/software tester. One thing I’ve been realizing is just how incredibly expensive writing buggy code is.
