We recently added something cool to PythonAnywhere, our Python online IDE and web hosting environment — if you’re writing a tutorial, or anything else where you’d find a Python console useful in a web page, you can use one of ours! Check it out: What’s particularly cool about these consoles (apart from the fact that […]

Busy, busy, busy

27 April 2011

A couple of weeks back we were brainstorming about other ways we could make use of the code infrastructure we’d put together for Dirigible. We had loads of stuff for running functional tests, determining dependencies between spreadsheet cells, executing untrusted user code safely on our servers, and so on. Any of those could potentially make […]

A Dirigible screencast

15 November 2010

I’d forgotten how much fun — but how much work! — it is to put together a short introductory screencast for a product. Three days of my own work plus countless suggestions and improvements from Glenn, Harry and Jonathan, and here we have the result:

Usability testers needed

27 February 2009

A repost here from the Resolver Systems news blog: We’re looking for experienced spreadsheet developers to spend a day with us in our London office, building Resolver One spreadsheets, as a way of usability-testing our software. We’re paying £200/day for this, so it’s perhaps something of most interest to current business school students. Does this […]
