The M&S website was pants: Frank isn’t being served

Posted on 09. Jul, 2014 by .

For a company built on bras, M&S seems to have ‘underwired’ their website… Woah. Soccerball. I now totally get it. Having given up trying to watch the World Cup on ITVPlayer I caught the Belgium vs USA game on the BBC. ‘Cause when you want a service you can trust, you head for the mothership, [...]

Last week, I took a look at how CIOs see the world. Let’s take the Borland Software perspective and examine how the process is defined, where ideas turn into assets – and where they might become liabilities. The initial value creation stages identify and refine your value-creating concepts and ideas. It’s where the need for [...]

Last week I took a look at the problems associated with the three main trend areas, and the specific problems they carry with them. And problems are the theme of this blog, too… No organisation is immune to issues, problems and challenges on their software projects. The 2013 Standish Group CHAOS Report and our own [...]

As you can probably tell, your boy Frank isn’t big on popular sports. I’m a busy guy. Standing up for developers eats up Frank’s vertical hours and when I try and catch up my shows, well, I’ve had some trouble. Game of Thrones, True Detective – both of them featured more downtime than a Detroit [...]

Mobile testing: from app failure to life in a trailer

Mobile testing: from app failure to life in a trailer

Posted on 09. Jun, 2014 by .

Back when I was a fresh-faced young developer, (that’s right, kids – even Frank was young once), ‘mobile testing’ meant seeing if your trailer home was waterproof. Since then, mobile technology has gone through the roof – much like the rain in Frank’s old trailer. While the hardware is now smoother than my rattlesnake shoes and [...]

As Borland Software were the headline sponsor for this key event, I was lucky enough to be offered a place at the conference. I was at the British Museum in time to meet a few of my colleagues before the event started. Just as importantly I also arrived in time for a coffee and a pastry [...]

Making history: the National Software Testing Conference

Posted on 22. May, 2014 by .

In our previous blog, we were looking forward to pitching up at the British Museum in London, perhaps the UK’s premier portal into the past, for the National Software Testing Conference. With this year’s event similarly confined to history, it’s time to review the event and see what we have learned. Plenty, as it turns [...]
