If there’s anyone out there still hoping to close a deal or impress customers with a message about how “mobile is a game changer”, then the words of Chief Justice John Roberts of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) might clarify just how outdated such positioning is:
Cellphones “are now such a pervasive and insistent part of daily life that the proverbial visitor from Mars might conclude they were an important feature of (more...)
I had great fun—and learned a lot in the process—by taking part in an internal Oracle hackathon using Estimote beacons. I joined a team developing a find food fast app using sensors, cleverly named iBacon (iBeacon, iBacon, geddit?).
iBacon didn’t win.
But what we achieved in those three days of the hackathon really knocked me out. It taught me a lot about teamwork and flexible working, and gave me a real-world insight into how (more...)

This is a quick one, if you have followed my other mobile blog posts.
When creating the mobile guide to the AOUG Conference 2013 (taking place June 17 and 18 in a historic Brewery in Vienna, Austria), i found myself creating a new theme using the themeroller, but still not getting the perfect result i wanted.
Every component got exactly the required color, except list-dividers in the Listview-Component looked a bit ugly.
Last post I wrote about evolution. Professional evolution… from legacy technology to new IT paradigms, cloud and mobile. This week, as a result of that evolution, the weather app I developed with a friend, was deployed and it’s available at App Store.
I hope users from Portugal and Brazil find (more...)
In the past 18 months I’ve researched and learned at least a dozen new (to me) and recent technologies. Any of them belongs to 2 interesting areas that I’ve focused in that period… Cloud and Mobile. I’m an early Amazon Web Services adopter and I’ve deployed several services and infrastructures on (more...)
