My first video year with Canon EOS 200D (SL2)

In April 2018 I’ve bought Canon EOS 200D as an upgrade/refresh to my previous Canon EOS 450D. First I was a bit lost in all Canon product lines (despite tracking their releases occasionally) and wasn’t fully decided whether I want to go up the line (77D/80D) or even two (7D Mk II), stay in the… Continue reading My first video year with Canon EOS 200D (SL2)

Christmas technology complaints 2018

It is often told that things are not what they were long time ago. That’s obviously true. And that they are getting worse – every generation says that. Things, young, relationships, you name it. But it is also often told that at the same time many things are getting better. Now, where is the truth,… Continue reading Christmas technology complaints 2018

Samsung UE50MU6170 review

So I’ve bought a new TV (it’s actually UE50MU6172 in our country, but it doesn’t matter) after roughly 9 years to upgrade our 32” screen to 50”. And it’s Samsung again. Why? Because I saw it, tried it and it didn’t dim the screen the way I hate. Little did I know that it does… Continue reading Samsung UE50MU6170 review

Pre-christmas technology review 2017

It’s been two years since my last technology overview and I feel the need for another one. Especially after otherwise pretty weak blog-year. Notebook HP Stream 14” with 32GB eMMC (“Snow White”) (verdict: 2/5) I got this for my son to teach him some HTML or similar entry-level computer stuff. He loves doing it. However,… Continue reading Pre-christmas technology review 2017

World Usability Day (WUD) 2016 was organized on November 10th, 2016 in many places around the world. Theme for this year was Sustainability, but for us, working with and for the public sector, it was even more attractive… Continue reading Bratislava World Usability Day 2016 and government IT

Bratislava World Usability Day 2016 and the future of design

By a lucky coincidence I visited the World Usability Day (WUD) event here in Bratislava. It was November 10th, 2016 – as any other event of the same name around the world. Theme for this year was Sustainability, but for us, working with and for the public sector, it was even more attractive thanks to… Continue reading Bratislava World Usability Day 2016 and the future of design

Believe in build automation

I was probably lucky having a great colleague who changed our installation/upgrade process into a single install.sh script. The script contained uuencoded ZIP as well, it unzipped the content (couple of Java EARs), checked the application server if all the resources are set up and then deployed these EARs. Having this experience probably around 2005… Continue reading Believe in build automation
