Loadtesting on EC2 – in all cloud++

Recently at work, had a need to rerun some load-testing numbers, but got stick since our internal servers all had builds we were looking at, or weren’t setup, or yada, yada… so we turned to EC2, with overall pretty positive results. Some background – we build a web-based portal application that runs on a lightweight ...

Recommended Programmer Reading

I was recently asked via email what training or whatnot I would recommend to bring a programming team up to speed on Java. A couple options come to mind – depending on the overall scope of your programming team and their past experience (if I can ask – what is your past experience?) but, I ...

Microsoft & Desktop Web Apps

Hmm… been a while since I vanity blogged 🙂 I was using my Mac with the Universal Access panel’s VoiceOver turned on (which is really annoying if you don’t tweak the verbosity settings) as part of some accessibility testing that I was doing with Sakai. An interesting side-effect of my testing came when Microsoft’s MyDay ...

SakaiCon Recap

Sitting on a flight, returning from the Sakai conference — still trying to take everything in. There’ll probably be more musing on the significance of specific items coming up, but things that struck me enough to want to brain dump were: * There was wide consensus during the planning sessions that there’s a desire to ...

Melete 2.4 Upgrades

Working on upgrading from Melete 2.3 – 2.4. The code merges are reasonable, though there’s a pretty good number of small patches that need to go into Sakai from trunk (really wish there was a 2.3.2 that I could just update to instead of having to grab all the individual patches 😉 While I like ...

Updated Rutgers to Samigo 2.4

So I finished merging in the Samigo 2.4 changes to the Rutgers code base yesterday the [instructions in the wiki](http://bugs.sakaiproject.org/confluence/display/SAM/Running+Samigo+2.4+in+Sakai+2.3) were actually very good — one small mis-merge on my part, but aside from the self-imposed pain the merge went quite smoothly. So far, the defaulting to off of the rich text areas is a ...

Personas and Test Data

I was reviewing the excellent work Unicon’s Gary Thompson has done in developing personas related to uPortal (really they seem applicable across Higher-Education), which jogged my to write about some thinking: leveraging well-developed UE personas to build a suite of synthetic test-data. User Experience is often not fully integrated within other aspects of the software ...

uP3 Day 6: More Layouts & GAPS

Published lots of portlets… edited lots of data.xml… really need a publishing tool. 🙂 Faizan’s been struggling all day without to much traction working on getting GAPS working – looks like some kinks between the updated PersonDirectory code and changes Dan’s been making on GAPS as the API evolves. I saw he posted last night ...

uP3 Day 5: More Person Directory & Data.xml Channel Publishing

Faizan’s PersonDirectory changes didn’t seem to take on my machine — not sure why, maybe the UserAttributesPortlet got patched, and I don’t have the most current version? I think he started looking at GAPS at home, but was running into some problems. I’m still looking at migrating our template user into the portal framework. For ...
