This article explains the steps to set up RetroPie, a software that bundles a lot of retro console emulators under one user interface. This allows you to make the ultimate retro gaming console for your TV.

I wrote five tips for Selenium that will be shared this week by trivago tech via Twitter and Substack.

Our current test automation setup for end to end testing is using Maven for preparing the test data, running our test scenarios and creating a test report. Recently, I wanted to refactor the way we use Maven's lifecycles and found a surprisingly easy way to do just that.

In my open source projects (e.g. my Cluecumber Maven Plugin for Cucumber reports), I usually keep all the code in GitHub monorepos. This way, multiple projects that belong together are easier to maintain because you only need to checkout one repository instead of many.
