How to make your QML applications scale to and look nice on Symbian, MeeGo/Harmattan and android

October 9, 2011 by Artem Marchenko

Yesterday I was talking at the 2nd Tampere barcamp about how you can make your application automatically scale to different devices, yet allow for pixel perfect fine-tuning when needed. We used this approach for Easy Discount Calculator that is to my understanding the first real app available simultaneously for Symbian, MeeGo/Harmattan and Android (on some Android devices it runs smoothly, on som it has problems due to bugs in not yet mature the porting technology).

Unfortunately the presentation may not make much sense to you if you haven’t been to the barcamp as well, but you may like to have a look at the application on your device. Here are the links to the app stores:
- Easy Discount Calculator for Nokia devices. BTW right now it is the second in the top seller Business apps for Nokia N9.
- Easy Discount Calculator for Android devices

Agile in universities

January 1, 2009 by Artem Marchenko

Last week I was giving a presentation on Agile in my Alma Mater in Ukraine. That was a very interesting event and I was positively surprised to see many 3rd year students interested much in the ways for effective software development. Here are the presentation slides published via slideshare (I changed two photos just in case they were a bit too sensitive for the corporate security):

Delivering a Great Presentation

September 26, 2008 by mcottmeyer

This week I am in London attending the Agile Business Conference. A few weeks ago I got to attend Agile 2008 in Toronto. Over the next few weeks I will be at the APLN Leadership Summit in Atlanta, the PMI Global Congress in Denver, the Vancouver Agile Conference, and the Better Software Conference down in Orlando.

That is a lot of conferences, a lot of speakers, and a lot of presentations.

User Stories: Three Steps to Better Presentations

Slide 'Waterfall' from Scrum Presentation

As a Scrum Coach, I often take on the role of Evangelist. Monday afternoon, I explained Scrum to the Swiss Java User Group[1]. Although not my first such talk, I had to completely rewrite the presentation. When this was 80% done, the realization hit me: How will I know if the "users" are getting what they need? Why am I not writing user stories?

Alistair Cockburn's Latest Presentation

July 8, 2008 by JurgenAppelo

AClogo I recently attended a presentation by Alistair Cockburn, one of the 17 signatories of the Agile Manifesto. The presentation was superb, as could be expected. Even though many ideas had already been presented earlier in Alistair's books, he also shared some interesting new concepts and insights with his audience. The entire presentation has 75 slides, and you can download it here (9MB).

Let me show you some examples of what you can expect to find in this presentation...
