History of Justaddwater.dk

Jesper and Thomas worked together at as web developers at Capgemini, and wanted to raise awareness of usability and web standards inside the company amongst co-worker developers, project management, and team members.

After a brief discussion on the ups and downs of newsletters, meetings, knowledge sharing groups, wikis and blogs, they decided to share thoughts with the whole world and not just to be another one of those “Capgemini-eyes-only” things.

To make a story short, they decided to start this blog October 14th, 2005.

    Hi Jesper, Thomas,

    Just came across your blog in my daily Ruby on Rails reading, and when I saw you guys were with CapGemini thought I’d touch base.

    I only work very occasionally, but I’m a Knowledge Working with the Cap ASE centre here in Toronto, are you guys familiar with the ASE? I still can’t tell how broad reaching it is in Cap.

    Anyways, just touching base….I’ll keep reading, this stuff is right up my alley, I’m a web developer with my own company (theworkinggroup.ca). We’re from a PHP background, but getting more and more into Rails these days, and loving it….just got back from the conferenc in Chicago actually…

    Take care,

    Cameron

    Hi Cameron

    Nice to hear from you :)

    Yes we know of ASE here in Capgemini Denmark. We had a “real” ASE some time ago, but have now launched a new concept with what you might call a mobile ASE. It all fits inside a truck and can transported to any location (be it a customer or a conference center). We then have all the equipment on-site (computers, AV gear, whiteboards, etc.)

    Actually if you have been in contact with ASE in Toronto, you might know a guy called Mads Jensen. He is a former employee of Capgemini Denmark and moved to Canada some time ago to (as far as I know) be in charge of ASE there. Now he is back in Denmark though, with his own company called Collaboration Lab.

    I don’t know how complete the list is (it should be), but we have a list of all our official ASE locations around the globe:

    I’ll touch base too. Or tjek in, whatever works.

    Seeing there is no other place better for commenting on this, I’ll ask here for some tag/category/archive plugin for browsing through entries re usability…

    The post I thought I remembered isn’t on the popular list.
