The site is geared towards helping people find a great graduate program for PM (cough – University of Texas at Dallas – cough), but her recent blog post on iPad apps has some great ideas in it.
(And Merlin made the top of the list) (more…)

Over the past few weeks I’ve been able to give a few presentations about doing project management on the Mac and on the iPad. I had a few requests so I thought I would post them.
The first is the presentation I gave in the Philadelphia Walnut St. Apple Store on how to manage projects using a Mac: Managing Projects on a Mac.
The second is the one I gave at the PMI Lehigh Valley Professional Development Day on how to use the iPad as a Project Management tool: The iPad and Project Management

Last year when Apple unveiled the iPad, I, along with countless others were overcome with that all too familiar craving for new gear from Cupertino. Having tried and quickly abandoned several tablets running the other operating system, I was hopeful that the iPad would gain the acceptance it has rightfully earned, but as a project manager, I was mostly curious about how this new device would fit in with my job. The Windows tablets I had tried in the past always seemed to make my job harder. So, when I purchased it, I wasn’t exactly sure what I was going to do it… but like I said… The craving…
Since then I’ve found a number of ways the original iPad enables me in managing projects and best of all, I’m able to use it with Merlin. And now, we have the iPad 2. (more…)

We have wrote in the past how to secure your Merlin projects when wanting them to be accessed over the web by a supported web browser.
Are you wondering how to proceed when requiring password protected access over the iPhone or iPad app?
The answer is… very similar to how you do for web sharing and access.
On your Mac with Merlin for Mac OS X…
On your Merlin app on the iPhone or iPad

Someone should give Michael Tiberg a cape!
I’m just back from Øredev 2010 and it was awesome! I am very fortunate in that I have the opportunity to attend and speak at a lot of conferences but none of them are like Øredev.
For the unfamiliar, Øredev is held each fall in Malmo, Sweden. It is put on by Jayway and organized by Michael Tiberg and Emily Holweck (who should also get a cape). This year they drew over 1,000 attendees from all over the world. The primary focus of the conference is development, but the topics addressed cover such a wide range that there is never a moment when you can’t find something that will spark your interest. (more…)

Collaboration is essential in project management. Merlin supports PMs in their every day work in that it allows collaboration to their projects over 3 kinds of interfaces. Once a project has been shared with either Merlin for Mac OS X or Merlin Server, it may be accessed by other Merlin for Mac OS X applications (acting as clients), supported web browsers or iOS devices.
How does this work?
The short answer is: “easily“. For the longer answer please read here (more…)

We have described in a previous post how to share projects for iPhones, iPads and iPod touches with Merlin for Mac OS X. Now we would like to show how this happens when using MerlinServer.
But a bit of theory first. iPhone sharing on MerlinServer…
Now to the practical part… (more…)

Steve Jobs, Apple CEO, really knows his profession. He really knows how to present* a piece of software or hardware and make you feel like you are watching the most successful blockbuster. He has an exact perception of how people love being part of something special. He understands how to create hardware which works but also manage to become cult. The amount of Apple users increase radically over the years. iPod was one of the products braking the clean cut between Mac and Windows Users. With the release of the iPod, almost everybody got to be an Apple user. Couple years ago you were nothing if you would jog without an iPod nano**.
Yesterday’s keynote on the WWDC 2010 didn’t came as a surprise, but still, (more…)

It’s become a tradition for Apple to announce new products at the WWDC Developer conference. True to form, Apple did not disappoint this year with the unveiling of the new iPhone 3G S, iPhone 3.0 Software Update, updated MacBooks, Safari 4, and the unveiling of Mac OS X Snow Leopard.
