Amsterdam Clojurians – my impression

December 18th, 2012 by
(http://blog.trifork.com/2012/12/18/amsterdam-clojurians-my-impression/)

It was a while ago, but I still wanted to share this my insight from Saturday 27th October, was the first all-day conference of the Amsterdam Clojurians which took place in the offices of Backbase. As a Clojure beginner and recent attendee of the meetup, I joined as it was a great opportunity to find a concentration of passionate people and talks about the Clojure planet.

About the state of my knowledge of the language: I started to study Clojure a few months ago, I’m now reading a book, watching videos, reading articles and checking out code, plus I’m growing my little pet project. I’m grasping the concepts, but can’t yet “get in the flow” while coding because I keep bouncing into many little difficulties, especially with the tooling (masochistically, I decided to code using Emacs, without having any prior experience with that editor!). So, predictably, the conference taught me a lot and some of those experiences, I want to share with you.

Our Spring Sale offers 25% off a 2-day training offered by our own active and leading Lucene & Solr committers and contributors.

Digital assessments using the QTI delivery engine

Perhaps you read in one of our recent blog entries that we are innovating the world of digital assessments. For many working in digital assessments / examinations, the QTI standard may not be a new phenomenon; it’s been around for a while. The interesting part is how it can be used. Orange11 is currently implementing a QTI assessment delivery engine that is opening new possibilities in digital examinations, assessments, publishing & many more areas. We’re currently busy preparing an interesting demo that will be available online in the coming weeks. However, in the meantime if you want to know more about the standard and technology and how we have implemented it, just drop us a note with your contact details and we can set up a meeting or send you more information.

Our Apache Whirr wizard

Frank Scholten, one of our Java developers has been voted in as a committer on Apache Whirr. Whirr is a Java library for quickly setting up services in the cloud. For example, using Whirr you can start a Hadoop cluster on Amazon EC2 in 5 minutes via the whirr command-line tool or its Java API. Whirr can also be used in combination with Puppet to automatically install and configure servers.

Frank has been active in using Apache Whirr and has also contributed his insights to the community site SearchWorkings.org where he has most recently written the blog Mahout support in Whirr. We are proud of his contributions and if you have any specific Apache Whirr question let us know.

Hot off the press, as of today “JTeam” will be known as “Dutchworks”!

October 10th, 2011 by
(http://blog.trifork.com/2011/10/10/hot-off-the-press-as-of-today-%e2%80%9cjteam%e2%80%9d-will-be-known-as-%e2%80%9cdutchworks%e2%80%9d/)

Many of you probably know that JTeam has gone through quite the evolutionary process over the last two years; the combination of our two acquisitions (Func & Net Effect), and our strong autonomous growth has resulted in over 250% increase in revenue and number of Dutchworkers. Further, it has allowed us to develop a services portfolio that now covers the full project life cycle, which is of course great news for our customers. All in all, more than enough reason for a complete upgrade of our company name and logo!

Just to give you a little inside info; the name “Dutchworks” stems from our love for typical Dutch values such as thoroughness, innovation and entrepreneurship, all of which have played an important part in the success of JTeam ever since we began in 2002. As of today, you will find our new brand name, including a completely new website (www.dutchworks.nl), featured in all internal and external communication.

To avoid misunderstandings, we would like to emphasize that other than our name change, everything else stays the same: same folks, same everything…
Anyways, we’re excited about our new name and looks, and hope you are too!

Warm regards,
Steven Schuurman / CEO Dutchworks

Successful Java Meetup last Friday – feedback wanted!

June 7th, 2009 by
(http://blog.trifork.com/2009/06/07/successful-java-meetup-last-friday-feedback-wanted/)

Last Friday we had another successful Java Meetup. This time we changed the format a bit to include two (very) short presentations. I didn’t want these presentations to take place in a boring office location or some kind of conference venue, so instead we settled for Werck, a nice bar and restaurant next to the Anne Frank House in central Amsterdam.
