The Welke Magazine has been around for a while now and is a well-established name in the home decoration area. To follow up on the success of their paper version, MediaMij –the company publishing these magazines– decided to expand their position in the market by launching an electronic version, The goal of this website was to give their readers a more interactive experience and allow them to find more products that could be of interest in an intuitive manner.

In this post, I will focus on some technical and organizational topics that were addressed during the project. Read the rest of this entry »

Search Symposium – different perspectives on search

July 13th, 2009 by

Last week (July 1st) JTeam hosted its first Search Symposium at our office at Frederiksplein 1, Amsterdam. The idea of the symposium was to get people together with different perspectives on search and discuss their experiences. The meeting was hosted by Adriaan Bloem (Analyst for CMS Watch) and Edwin Adriaansen (CTO from iLocal). They both presented their take on search, where Adriaan focused more on the search market, different vendors and the open source alternatives and Edwin provided insight into the rationale and findings of doing a large-scale search implementation.

JTeam announces Wicket training!

March 24th, 2009 by

jweekendlogoWe are pleased to announce that JTeam has joined jWeekend’s “Global Partner Program” to deliver the jWeekend Apache Wicket Course in The Netherlands.
jWeekend developed this globally renowned course with London based Wicket core-developer Alastair Maw in the Spring of 2007 and since then have delivered it to happy students from all over the world more than 20 times, to students from freelance developers to the world class corporation.
We can now bring this course to you, in Holland, presented by JTeam’s very own Wicket guru, Erik van Oosten!

At JTeam we have focussed recently on ’empowering’ our clients, teaching them on the job about our preferred process and technologies. In that role, we advise the client on trainings for their staff when needed. For trainings about Spring and Hippo we usually introduce the client to our corresponding partner and for some topics (e.g. Hibernate and GWT) we have some of our own training material that we mostly use to teach on the job when needed.

Obviously training is not our core business as we are a software project company. But we still want to be able to offer high quality trainings as an added service to our customers. Therefore we have been talking to jWeekend about a partnership. Starting April JTeam will offer their Wicket training to Dutch customers. The training will be given by Erik van Oosten who has a good reputation in the Wicket community. For now we will focus on on-site trainings on demand, but we might collaborate with jWeekend on organizing public trainings in the Netherlands. So, if you are looking for a Wicket training in Holland, contact us at
