Permanent by design
We are the robots
Commissioned by De Rolf Groep
and Hogeschool de Kempel, PermanentMarkers went to work
on the NAO robot. The
aim of the project was to deploy the NAO robot to classrooms in primary education.
In which we succeeded, because the software developed by Permanent markers is already used in
many schools in the Netherlands, UK and soon in the USA.

- Web based software for creating course materials
- Real Time Control Panel; Web interface for controlling the robot
- Computer Vision Software running on the robot
- Robot behaviour software, which bring the course material to life
As a result of permanentmarker's latest large scale project, a lot of devops tools got developed, which
are now being released under the devopsconsulting organisation on github.
This will become the basis of a new startup called devopsconsulting. We will be releasing screencasts of all
the tools and their function in the near future.
Puppet is great. Having a repeatable installation script of a server is the best documentation there is. Configuring an
entire server with all kinds of services is easy! Even when the configuration of one service updates, dependent services can
be made to reload automatically.
On a slightly different scale, where dependencies don't exist between services on the same machine, but on different
machines, the options are limited.
A lot has been said about Xcode workspaces. Still, when using the xcode
workspace feature to add dependencies on external (static) libraries, you might
find a strange linker error.
Back in may, I was on holiday in Spain for a month. Finally without a contract,
I decided to try and pick up cocoa. The new Mac OS X app store was still rather
empty and especially the developer tools section was filled with useless icon
resize tools. Opportunity called upon me to add something useful.
PermanentMarkers launches iPhone app: Veggies.
Do one thing and do it well, Veggies
is a simple and effective app that provides you with the cooking times of
vegetables. Instantly learn how long your vegetables need to cook in
either boiling water, the steamer or the microwave.
PermanentMarkers creates great software, whether internet related or not.
Our motto is:
If you can think it, we can make it.
While unrestricted by technological boundaries, PermanentMarkers would especially
like to do your:
- Artificial intelligence
- Flash websites (fully dynamic with cms in python/django)
- Cocoa Mac OSX / iPhone development
