Our company was originally Windward Studios (that is still our legal name) which is a great name for a game software company. But when we first started with reporting software the marketing team decided to focus on a single name and so we became Windward Reports. That worked great for awhile, but as time has progressed we are now much more than reports with a great docgen program as well as our new B.I. products. So after long discussion and test marketing, we’re now Windward. (Yes, it took a lot of effort to figure that out.) And Windward Studios has... Continue reading

The game is RoboRally. You need to write an A.I. for the game that is superior to that written by all of the other contestants. Imagine that you're a supercomputer. Now imagine that you're bored. So you dream up a little contest for you and a couple of your supercomputing buddies. Your task is to move one of the stupid little robots out on the factory floor through a series of checkpoints scattered throughout the factory. The wrinkle, however, is that the factory floor is filled with all kinds of inconvenient (if not down-right deadly) obstacles located in various locations:... Continue reading

The most valuable part of the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference is meeting with other partners (ISVs and SIs in our case). And so Microsoft has a room with a bazillion tables in it set up for this. And you can send out invites to other companies that are a good fit asking them to meet. The system is set with a time and table number for the meeting. The other person accepts and you then meet at the table. So we go to our first meeting Sunday evening. And we wait… and wait… It’s like a blind date – will... Continue reading

Windward wants your input when we name our brand new Business Intelligence product. Simply come up with a name for our BI tool, and if we like it so much we use it you will take home...

Here are the first videos of Tigger in action. The videos demonstrate queries in Word, but it works equally well in Excel and PowerPoint. What this shows is any business user can easily and quickly perform what if ad-hoc queries from their system. No need to spend money on consultants, no need to wait for consultants to implement the system, no need to be limited by what the consultants create. Just fire up Microsoft Office and you're able to query your data. Ad-hoc queries The above video demonstrates how simple ad-hoc queries are. And keep in mind, what you display,... Continue reading

As a computer scientist, I often hear buzz about some new language that has just come out and does this and that differently and is all the rage. Upon closer inspection I find the usual poorly implemented, badly designed linguistic heap of bull feces that seems to be popular. As a good reader you should be asking yourself: "Why is this guy so jaded about the leading edge?" That reason I'm jaded is simple: I have found much to my dismay that most if not all of these new and upcoming languages are essentially clones of each other with minor... Continue reading
