  • Spring Cleaning

    by Kore Nordmann on Tue, 08 Jan 2013 11:35:52 +0100

    Creating a new website was on our todo list for a bit more than a year now. But, you know that, business first pushed that task down again and again. But now, we are happy to finally launch our shiny new web presence, thanks to the incredible help of Age of Peers. Together with our friend Sandro and his colleagues, we created a completely new communication strategy, re-worked most of our texts and got a brand new web design. Let us know what you think of it!

  • Code Review Tool

    by Kore Nordmann on Fri, 16 Sep 2016 11:44:49 +0200

    We, at Qafoo, do Code Reviews quite often together with our customers. This often focusses on dicussing metrics, browsing the associated code and discussing solutions for the issues found. We started using a bunch of shell scripts for that, like everyone else, but at some point we came up with a webinterface to do this in a more comfortable way. Now we want to share this tool with you.

  • Abstract Classes vs. Interfaces

    by Kore Nordmann on Tue, 27 Jun 2017 10:24:03 +0200

    Features of object oriented languages are often use from a purely technical perspective, without respect to their actual semantics. This is fine as long as it works for you, but might lead to problems in the long run. In this article I discuss the semantical differences between abstract classes and interfaces. I also outline why following the semantics of those language constructs can lead to better code.

    by Kore Nordmann on Mon, 04 Jun 2012 11:23:42 +0200

    Did you ever try to debug a system with multiple interacting web services? We just released a tool, which we developed internally to be able to debug complex HTTP based SOA stacks (REST). It offers the same listening capabilities like Wireshark, but displays the HTTP requests in a far more readable way and makes it easy to reproduce single requests. Read more…
