Be a Star in ESA’s Universe24 October 2016

Tonight Yann is speaking at the Basel stop of the Swiss Space Roadshow. In one of the three presentations of the evening, he is going to talk about his experience working with ESA and the various career paths at Solenix. A panel discussion and a networking session complete this event. It will give the 60+ registered students and young engineers the opportunity to ask questions to representatives from ESA, the Swiss government, companies and academia.


Solenix Workshop - Spring Boot11 October 2016

During our latest regular Solenix Workshop we had a thorough look at Spring Boot and how it can benefit us in our current and future software projects.

Spring Boot allows creating rich application launchers harnessing the full power of the Spring framework. It allows us to create self-contained applications, which bring all the necessary utensils, including web servers, database connectors, etc. in a single package and a single process. As usual with the Spring framework, Spring Boot makes using sophisticated features much easier.


Solenix at the ESA Basketball Tournament29 September 2016

Last weekend, Solenix participated in the ESA basketball tournament, which every year gathers amateur players in teams representing different ESA sites as well as some of ESA's industrial partners. In 2016, a record 6 teams got together in the outskirts of Madrid, in Tres Cantos, to compete for the title. Solenix was represented once more as part of the ESRIN team, where it has been present since 2013.


Solenix Workshop - Automated User Interface Testing04 August 2016

During the August workshop we discussed automated user interface testing. We at Solenix use UI tests to simulate user interactions with our web applications offering us the possibility to discover weak points. Automated tests make our engineers’ lives easier as the tests ensure the integrity of the code during our nightly checks. After having researched several tools available in the market, our choice is SeleniumHQ, which allows us to test our products with all major web browsers and with different programming languages.
