Village Software 21st Birthday 19 November 2007, by Johnny
Village celebrate 21 years of software development. Customers, suppliers, and staff past and present turned out to celebrate Village Software's 21 years in business. One of Village's founders, John Garret, was kind enough to return to share some thoughts on the early days, and current MD Johnny Read talked about values and the road ahead. In what was a family affair, adults and children alike enjoyed the fun casino tables, the Wii, and the food. Here's to another 21 years!

LabCom Certificate Update 4 September 2007, by Johnny
The new release of LabCom allows Watertech to print the names of clients and sites onto their certificates. This is a variant on earlier versions that were designed to deal more with relationships with fairly large clients, instead putting the end clients on the list will allow a streamlining of administration from Lab to Certificate for Midlands-based Watertech.
The Right Tools for the Job at Experian 21 June 2007, by Johnny
Breadth of knowledge was key
Amatica and Village have been working together on a number of projects. Most recently, providing consultancy to advise Experian on a development path for an internal system. Village's Johnny Read and Amatica's David Roberts presented findings to a dozen interested parties with Experian.
Breadth of knowledge was key; when you have a hammer everything looks like a nail. However on this occasion, we realised that our normal object oriented analysis strategy was not appropriate, and we choose to use a Data Flow Diagram based structured analysis. This critical thinking and attention to Experian's needs enabled us to create an understanding of a complex web of interacting systems.

...share what we know, and learn from others...
