2010 was a great year for us and with this short summary we at Valentine Web Systems wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Plone, GAE, HTML5

The year started with business as usual with our main customer EEA and with overtime we also managed to redesign Jeeves Information System's multilingual websites, all with Plone. I, Sasha went to the Lovely Snow Sprint where the topic this year was Google App Engine. It was a perfect place to meet friends and learn something new. Together with Jens W. Klein from Bluedynamics and Nick Johnson from Google we created TweetEngine for sharing twitter accounts. After the Snow Sprint I was very inspired to do more projects so we decided to take 2 days a month to do none customer work and Per Thulin really let his creativity flow. We put all our projects on . During summer Frederik Jeppsson joined us and helped us evaluate  python e-commerce systems and migrate from EasyShop to LFS.

Father and we won the tender

After summer the changes started. I became a father. Per Thulin decided to start his own company so I decided to leave the office and move to the open space at Malmö Arena at St.Gertrud. Together with Eau de Web in Romania we won the tender at EEA! But after more then 6 years I decided that it was time for me to do some new projects so for the new work at EEA I found a replacement for me.

The launch at EU parliament

During the year our biggest project was SOER 2010 and a subproject SENSE for the European state of environment report. But before the launch of SOER 2010 at EU parliament in Brussels I also went to Plone Conference 2010. At the Plone Conference 2010 I gave two talks,   External E-commerce and Plone playing along and Managing multilingual sites.

New year, new opportunities

Now few days left of the year I must say it has been a good year, a lot of work, met interesting people in the SENSE project and I am looking forward to the new year with a lot of new interesting projects and opportunities. 

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from a cold and snowy Sweden!
