I (Wybo) have just been at the LIRMM lab in Montpellier, France for a week, working on LogiLogi. The LIRMM lab, under the leadership of Michel Robert, and with the guidance of Jean Sallatin, will be using LogiLogi to write and discuss their self-evaluative documents, and their mission-statement. The LIRMM really is an inspiring place, where 180 staff and about 170 PhD & master’s students work on topics like robotics, micro- electronics, and (most of them) on computer-science.
I’m typing this as I am on the train back home, because we have been working so hard (also over the weekend) that there was hardly any time left for other things, such as updating the blog. I haven’t even seen the beach, except from the plane :-)
We have fixed a lot of bugs, and also done some small, but important improvements to the UI. In all, it was a good time, and for all the hard work (the devving was fun in itself too!), there were also good conversations, even if some of them were in French :-)
I will be doing some more fixes during a few evenings in the coming weeks, but LogiLogi should be quite usable and stable now. There is more good news in the making, but I will post it in another post.

Steffen Michels is our hero!, the Slayer of Bugs; he is the winner of the glorious Manta bug-hunt! He found 8 different bugs, and he fixed 8 of them, and those were not the least of bugs.
Some were quite a challenge! Luckily we were able to take a picture of him in full fight with one of the most staggering software-bugs ever caught on camera!

Seven students from the university of Nijmegen have just joined our team. They will be developing LogiLogi Manta with us as part of a course. Meet them: Wybo (me), Rens, Jordy, Roel, Thierry, Steffen, Bart and Feng!
In two weeks they will be set up and ready to rock with Ruby. Then we will have a bug-hunt on the alpha-version until the end of march. During this bug-hunt Manta is tested and twisted extensively as both finding bugs and squashing them are going to be core objectives. And after this LogiLogi Manta finally goes live!...Continue reading »
We’re very happy to have Miguel with us, and we hope, and think he will have a great, lasting influence on LogiLogi. Welcome to Miguel!
