The LDSTech Developers Conference is Quickly Approaching Print E-mail
Tuesday, 23 March 2010

The 2010 LDSTech Developers Conference is quickly approaching. We are excited to engage with you on projects that, without your help, cannot be completed.

What projects will you be able to begin work on? There are over 20 projects that you can help with. If you’ve been frustrated with the lack of flexibility in scheduling recreation facilities, you can be part of the solution. If you’ve been wondering how you can access your local unit directory from your mobile device, you’ll be able to work on that too. And if you’ve been wondering why you can’t download more Church media for use in the meetinghouse libraries, you can contribute to a project addressing this specific problem.

Please join us. Learn more and register for the LDSTech Developers Conference.

Multilingual Web Sites That Work Print E-mail
Written by Tyler Dalton   
Thursday, 18 March 2010

Is it really possible to create a usable multilingual Web site that works across a broad set of languages? This has been a great challenge for the Church as we try to ensure that Web content can reach the worldwide Church and not just a subset of those who can read English.

Come to the LDSTech Developers Conference Print E-mail
Friday, 12 March 2010

For three years many individuals have been coming to LDSTech looking for a way to put their technical talents to work. They have put forward innovative ideas, discussed methods and solutions on the LDSTech forums, and worked as volunteers on Church-sponsored projects.

This has been an adventure for you, as well as for us. We have been humbled by your willingness to help in whatever way you can. We have been awed by your talent in the community.

As the community has grown, it has become apparent that you need better tools and processes to make the best use of your time. We now have more of these tools and will soon be making them available to you. The main purpose of the LDSTech Developers Conference is to train you how to develop on Church-sponsored projects with these new tools. We’ll share our vision, show you the environment, and help you get started.

If you are interested in becoming part of this unique community, consider attending the LDSTech Developers Conference.

Using Video Conferencing to Help Move the Church Forward Print E-mail
Written by Shanna Gerrard   
Thursday, 11 March 2010

The Church is often an early adopter of technologies such as video conferencing that enable the Church to fulfill its mission. Church leadership has been using video conferencing since the mid-1990s. The demand for this technology continues to grow and expand.

The first video conferences for the Church were held on rented systems. The success of these meetings led to the installation of systems at headquarters and in various area offices around the world. Church leaders in Salt Lake City work directly with Area Presidents around the world through video conferencing. Other tasks which previously required expensive travel have been replaced by video conference meetings. For example, interviews with potential mission presidents around the world can be conducted via video conferencing.

Exploratory Testing: A Lost Art? Print E-mail
Written by David Kosorok   
Friday, 19 February 2010

When I was a kid, I would use a hammer to set my tent stakes or to pound nails into two-by-fours to build tree forts. I thought I could use the hammer for anything. If I hit a board hard enough, it would break, and I wouldn’t need to use the saw. If I hit the plywood just right, I could punch a hole through the board without using the drill.

Obviously, using one tool to do it all may get quick results, but it won’t look pretty. Many in the testing industry use a similar single-tool approach, attempting to solve every problem using automated testing. No time? Slap some automation on your software and ship it out the door. No money? Cut down on testers and have an automation engineer do it all.
