Experience report EuroSTAR Testlab 2012 Martin Jansson 1 Comment

Setup Bart Knaack had done a wonderful job in setting up and organizing the testlab. He had done this by himself. So most credit to him for taking on most of the initial work and planning. Me, Ru Cindrea and Kristoffer Ankarberg focused on keeping the lab up and running as well as taking care […]

Set All Testers Free! Rikard Edgren 2 Comments
