LiquidPlanner as a Resource Management Tool
June 17th, 2013 — Sarah Montee
Mindgrub is an exciting, busy place. We have a wide array of projects going on at any one time, and that means lots of work for the Quality Assurance (testing) department. Simply put, managing testing resources for a constant stream of projects is a complicated task. With the rush of fluctuating deadlines, progress reports, and demands on resources’ limited time, it’s possible for some testing tasks to slip through the cracks—and that’s never acceptable.
Drupalcon Portland – A Tale of MongoDB
June 15th, 2013 — Brian Thompson
It seems like just yesterday we traveled cross country to the little town of Portland for the annual U.S. Drupalcon. As we left Baltimore on Sunday morning, we could tell we weren’t the only ones going out to Drupalcon. There were quite a few travelers on the plane with “nice nodes” T-shirts or carrying enough technology with them to run what seemed like a mobile production studio. As even more Drupal devs joined our flight in Salt Lake City, I knew I was going to the right place.
Mastering Copy and Paste in iOS – Part 2

Sometimes for security purposes you may wish to lock down the functionality (to not allow copy and paste at all) or disallow copying and pasting between your app and other apps that may be on the device.

- Last week we saw Living Social get hacked where the attackers made off with usernames and “cryptographically scrambled” passwords. This week, Ars Technica reports on why we SHOULD worry about this attack. HINT: LinkedIn had over 6 million “cryptographically scrambled” passwords stolen last year.

6 Steps to Mobile App Success
May 1st, 2013 — Todd Marks
I started growing Mindgrub in 2007 from my basement in Baltimore, when the iPhone was first released. Since that time we have grown to 50 employees, made over 75 Apps for iPhone, Android, Blackberry and Windows, and learned a tremendous amount along the way. In the early years, putting a cool app in the store was all you needed to do. But now with Millions of apps available for download,
