QA & Dyslexia
I’ve got some BlackBerry posts coming up, but first I’d like to say a few words about why I haven’t posted anything in six months. There are two reasons:
- I don’t like Windows OS. I’ll use it if I have to, but for my dev environment at home, I was just too tempted to clean the hard drive (once I’d finished my BlackBerry book), and replace the OS with Linux. Naturally, I told myself I’d set my BlackBerry dev environment back up on some other machine or in a virtual machine or something, and — since I love installing Windows so much — you can imagine that that task hasn’t come to the top of my “to do” list.
- I’m excited about my current job, and it’s something completely different: QA engineering for Dybuster.
Dybuster is a software suite that helps dyslexic kids learn to read. For the kids it’s a game. It works by giving the kids additional ways to learn words, using colors, tones, and 3D graphical representations:
Since I’ve been testing it, I can say that it has definitely improved my spelling in German. Of course I’m not Dyslexic. 😉
And, fortunately, there’s an English version available too (including a free downloadable demo version).
