Here in Qubiz we believe in the power of people’s ideas that is why we bring people together and put our minds to work in order to come up with solutions to some of our everyday problems or improvements to services people are offered daily. To achieve these objectives which we’ve set for ourselves, we have been organizing for some time now events called Qubiz Connect.

The events are attended by people who work in the domain the event is focused on or they are just interested in the subject and have the confidence that they can add value to it. The final target for these events is creating joint ventures between Qubiz and the people attending, so that together we can make people’s lives better and add value to businesses.

This year Qubiz was present at the Zorg&ICT event in The Netherlands. There was so much going on after the event and so much info and feedback to be put together that we were only now able to write our opinions and our experiences from those days. We were so impressed with what we found there that we believe we owe it to the people who presented there, to share our insights.

Mobile applications are the new ‘it’ and everyone wants a piece of the action, but which platform is the best one to do development on ? Well we couldn’t decide either so we are developing applications on all three of them, iOS, Android and WindowsPhone, and we will present our findings on them along the way.

This week our iOS developer agreed to share his insight on the platform and thus maybe help you decide whether Apple is a good choice for you. So read along, tell us what you think or what you’ve found and let’s develop revolutionary Apple applications.

Start using Unit Testing today

Published on March 26, 2012
- in Blog, Projects & Know-How

Unit testing is a very debatable subject. Is unit testing necessary ? Is the extra time needed to implement unit testing in a project really paying off in the end ? Well… let’s see; one of the developers in Qubiz will tell us his perspective on unit testing.

Unit testing is the way through which a developer checks if the logic of his code behaves as it is intended to. For each piece of code a developer wants to test, he will write a test method.

5 questions and answers about REST

Published on March 16, 2012
- in Blog, Projects & Know-How
One of the senior developers from Qubiz has accepted the invitation to talk about RESTful service. We have started to use RESTful services for a while and our customers are very happy with the results.

What is REST?

Representational State Transfer (REST) is a derivation of World Wide Web’s architectural style. REST is a style, not a standard. There is neither a REST RFC, nor a REST protocol specification. But REST defines how to use the existing Web standards in a better way by trying ”to minimize latency and network communication, while at the same time maximizing the independence and scalability of component implementations” (Roy Fielding, in his dissertation about REST).More specific, REST is an architectural style for building client-server applications by implementing services based on HTTP protocol. Domain-specific data (resources) are transmitted over HTTP without an additional messaging layer such as SOAP or session tracking via HTTP cookies.

What to know about QlikView

Published on February 28, 2012
- in Blog, Projects & Know-How

The need for Business Intelligence is growing by the day thus solution providers compete in bringing the best suited solution for each client. Qlikview is a BI solution that competes, among others, with Microsoft BI, Oracle BI, IBM Cognos and BO from SAP.

Everytime one wants to use a solution to help him in his work, a analysis should be conducted before, to see which one is most suited for his needs. Taking this into consideration I think it is important to know some of the things that would convince someone to use Qlikview as his BI tool. The resons mentioned from this point onward are the result of our own analysis after researching, installing and using Qlikview in non-commercial projects.

Imagine Cup internship in Qubiz

Published on February 6, 2012
- in Blog, Qubiz Academy

As many of you might know, Microsoft has been organizing over the past several years a software development contest called Imagine Cup. Students from all over the world get the chance to compete against each other at developing the most interesting software application related to each year’s theme.

Students can either form teams or compete by themselves and are given the chance to be mentored by faculty members or private held companies. This year such a company is Qubiz – we want to mentor and help teams or individual students from Oradea to get involved in this competition and hopefully win.
