Back again

It's been quite a while since my last post. Now, having finished my exam session, I hope to resume regular posting.

So, what's been up lately? Well, just a few days ago version 1.1.1 of the calendaring server SchoolBell, free software that I'm working on, has been released. I am fairly satisfied with the reliability of this version as it fixes most problems that surfaced in SchoolBell 1.1, which was tested by quite a few people. SchoolBell will not be developed further on its own in the near future, instead we will be working on SchoolTool Calendar (version 0.10 released recently), which is an extension for SchoolBell that accommodates some education-related use cases. You can find some nice screenshots on the webpage and in the "screencasts" for SchoolTool and SchoolBell.

In other news: I'm leaving for EuroPython in Sweden on Saturday with my colleagues. I will be doing a presentation there on unit-testing PyGTK applications, which is not quite my area of expertise, but, well, they accepted the talk, so they can't complain. The code behind the idea still needs a lot work but I intend to clean it up a little bit and make it public before I leave.

It would be really interesting to see your presentation :) Does it cover ideas from " unit-testing with wxPython" or you have something completely different?

It's nothing ground-breaking really. I intend to cover a few of the other testing tools too. I'll make sure to upload my slides somewhere as soon as I finish them.
