Our team does a lot of very cool work, but we’re often barred from talking about it. So recently we decided to focus on some projects we can talk about and wrote up some case studies. Here are three.
How do you test a slow file upload? Force it to be slow.
Most of the time, you test your apps on a fast connection, especially when working on a local machine. Most of your clients/visitors/customers aren’t so lucky, but how do you simulate their connection speed?
If you have installed Xcode on Lion, you have access to a very cool tool called Network Link Conditioner.
What do Google’s AppInventor, JavaBeans, and Myspace all have in common? They’re all misguided attempts at putting development in the hands of non-developers.
“I don’t have time to test” seems to be somewhat of a recurring theme in hurried projects. Stop lying to yourself—and your clients.
