Adventures in Widget Development

I could never imagine how hard it is to get a widget running or better to get it accepted. Maybe it is just for the JIL specification or especially for the Vodafone Appstar Competition which I attended. I definitely don’t know.

Naja der Umstieg auf wordpress fiel nicht so schwer, da ich ja nur einen Post hatte in Drupal 🙂

Auf den ersten Blick gefällts mir schon viel besser. Das erste Bild kommt in diesem Post noch nicht, aber die Möglichkeit besteht auf jeden fall schon gleich nach der installation.

Nun denn, stay tuned.
