Bootstrap sequence for portable web applications

Posted by on February 11, 2012 at 2:12 pm

Having worked on larger scale sites, we found out that you are bound to look at more scalable solutions to integrating widgets, code snippets or complete applications and mesh them into functional sites, in any given composition. To share some of our best practices, possibly the most important thing we changed is to eliminate all […]

Wouldn’t that be something?

Posted by on April 12, 2011 at 10:59 pm

Recently on Facebook I was asked what my vision was, as once again I was referencing to Simon Sinek, who’s writing and public appearances form a great inspiration to me. Sharp and quickly I replied that I belief in change and the need to anticipate to change, rather than staring blindly at yesterdays problems. That […]

The User Experience in Online Architecture

Companies hire the top graphical designers and user interaction specialist to think and design from an user perspective in order to create an optimal user experience. Specialist who live their working lives thinking from the outside in, placing the user central for a single channel customer journey or complex cross channels experiences. While thinking from […]

Online landscapers

While trying to tackle the speeding world of trends in online technology, there seems to be an increasing demand in what is referred to as “Online Architects”. From what I have encountered as much can be said that in most customer views has little to nothing to do with Enterprise Architecture, or architecture in itself. […]

JanRain Engage in an AJAX environment

Posted by on November 22, 2010 at 12:17 pm

We where looking to embed Janrain in a somewhat complex AJAX driven single page interface flow. The default behavior of the JanRain Engage part of the flow is to redirect the top window to the token_url. As you can imagine this messes up your SPI state.

People Matter. Results Count

Posted by on November 16, 2010 at 9:34 pm

Yesterday (depending on your timezone) Capgemini revealed it’s new brand identity “People matter, results count”. Following anticipated discussions in which way the comma in this slogan should be interpreted, there is a personal choice to this interpretation as well. We can take the easy way and take the negative approach which seems to be on top […]

Content as a service.

Posted by on November 5, 2010 at 10:54 pm

While having discussions with some colleagues, I find it amazing how otherwise very knowledgeable content management specialist find it very complex to see that the next generation for web content delivery should be content as a service. Talking endlessly on terms like pre-publishing, caching, creating complex webservices, reverting back to JSP’s, PHP’s or servlets, it’s […]

JSONP-DOM, JSONP without callback querystring.

Posted by on October 31, 2010 at 10:52 am

While working on centrally hosted Backbase widgets we needed a JSONP solution that is cachable by proxies (Squid, akamai) as well for browsers. Where regular JSONP requires the response to wrap the response using a callback. As we have full control on the response, the solution we came up with (and dubbed “JSONP-DOM”) is to […]

Working around __flash_removeCallback

Posted by on September 20, 2010 at 7:17 am

Abusing your own blog for delicious like bookmarking should be forbidden! Either way, Dave Smith provides (see comment section) a nice workaround for __flash_removeCallback “Object required” alerts when embedding flash in internet explorer and reloading the page. <script type=”text/javascript”> (function(){var s=function(){__flash__removeCallback=function(i,n){if(i)i[n]=null;};window.setTimeout(s,10);};s();})(); </script> I decreased the setTimeout interval to somewhat higher then 10ms, because for me […]

Perceived standardization / differentiation

Posted by on August 8, 2010 at 10:14 am

In a discussion on Yammer it seems that merely 30 years ago the vision was to have 30 engineers around the globe writing services that others would use. The concept might be working if you increase the number of engineers 10 to 100 fold. Most important however it seems that even though we discuss a […]
