Move from Eclipse to Netbeans and never look back

July 22nd, 2011

Jasper and I were so seriously annoyed by the spinning beach ball in Eclipse PDT that it was decided to try a switch in editors. I used my free Zend Studio licence to check it out, and he tried Netbeans 7.0. I'm not here to write about the comparison, for me Zend Studio was -not surprisingly, as it's based on Eclipse- even more beach ball prone and quickly tossed aside. (read on for some of my favorite improvements).

Well it's official. PHP Certification is feels a lot like getting a tattoo; you never leave it at just one! We (Jasper and I) passed the Zend Framework exam a few months ago, and yesterday is was PHP5.3 time... our rainbow of goodness is now complete

Moving house

July 12th, 2010

Or actually: office. The past 5 years we've been building the foundations for Future500. Growing and expanding, but all from our own attic, and in the beginning even our kitchen table.

PHP Certification

January 14th, 2010

Working for a company in the past I was always bitching about how diploma's and certification don't say a whole lot about a person's capabilities. Of course I HAD to say that, since I dropped out of school and never actually finished my education..
