2015 Summer Interns: Learning Through Experience

by Curtis Johnson 7/28/2015

Doug’s post from a couple weeks ago reminded me of one of the most interesting philosophies that I have seen to fruition during my time at Don’t Panic Labs. While we are always interested in engineers with a considerable amount of experience, we especially look for bright, young engineers that, regardless of inexperience, exhibit an eagerness to learn software engineering. We can place these individuals in an environment in which they will be able to grow through hands-on experience as software engineers and gain invaluable knowledge in the various areas of application development.

Why I’m Betting On Windows Phone

by Brian Zimmer 7/21/2015

I fell for Windows Phone while attending Microsoft MIX 2010.

by Doug Durham 7/14/2015

People who know me understand how strongly I feel about experiential learning. I have often talked about how valuable I believe my own personal experiences are and how I feel they impact the way I see and approach problems.

Ensuring Software Quality with a Layered Approach

by Anne Ruskamp 7/7/2015

The Beehive team (on which I work), as well as all the Nebraska Global companies, have made layered processes and techniques part of our day-to-day operations to ensure the quality of the software we are creating. It is very easy to make a statement like “by relying on more than one testing technique, we will be able to create more quality software,” and have it resonate with most folks. However, what I believe is more interesting is how we have gone about integrating a focus on quality through a mixture of techniques, processes, and culture. More...
