Windward Videos and Codewars

The Cubicle Wars Saga

It's every business' goal, nay, its mission to maximize company resources, and that includes employees' time. While most business would make effective use of this new found time, two hooligans by the names of Dirk and Brent happen to have found themselves with way too much free time after their company integrated Windward's document generation and reporting solutions. What could two guys possibly get up to at the office? You'd be surprised, watch and find out.

Windward Code Wars

Windward's Code Wars are unlike any other code war or hackathon - in this AI strategy game, made by the creator of Enemy Nations, you go head to head against top students from all over the world. Write the best AI, anticipating what others might design and designing counter measures. No judges, the high score wins. Students of all skill levels and backgrounds are welcome: strategy and skill are rewarded, and the winning code isn't always the cleanest!

Southwind Datasources

The Microsoft Northwind Database is probably the most used sample database in the world. It's clean, small, andsimple making it perfect when the need is for a basic datasource used to illustrate SQL access.

Windward has copied that data to multiple other datasources, from additional SQL databases to non SQL datasources. We have named these Southwind.

Metaphorical Boss

Your boss requires clear, concise and timely reports. That's where the Windward Solution come in. See why "The kitten is a metaphor."

IKVM is alive & well

We along with many others read with sadness when Jeroen Frijters announced the end of his work on IKVM. What he created is a thing of beauty that we and a lot of others depended on.

Because we use IKVM to build the .NET version of our engine, we copied the final IKVM and created a new project that we are supporting going forward. You can find the projects here.

Windward JsonPath

The original json-path project on GitHub now has zero contributors. It's a good library, but can no longer be improved.

As we use this at Windward for our JPath functionality (Java & .NET), we have forked the project and have subsequently made numerous small improvements to the library.

You can find the project here.

Delivering Code with as Few Bugs as Possible

No Bugs was written by Windward Studios' CEO, Dave Thielen in 1992. What still applies today, "Developers know that software is inherently buggy. And most developers also, hopefully, want to eliminate these bugs before shipping a product. This book is written for these people."
