BlazeMeter Introduces Breakthrough Scriptless Performance Testing Technology, FollowMe
by BWW News Desk - Jun 25, 2014

Fifty four percent of companies spend between $25,000 and $100,000 to develop a mobile app, and another 25 percent spend more than $100,000 per app. Between $8,000 and $30,000 of that budget usually goes to testing and debugging, which, until now, has required scripting to complete. The personnel alone needed to create, support and maintain these scripts cost organizations an average of $852,187. But, with BlazeMeter's new FollowMe module, scripting is eliminated altogether, allowing companies to redirect that budget and staff toward other core competencies. For small companies developing their first mobile app, the savings that FollowMe provides can significantly lower go-to- market barriers. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Applause for Actors Theatre's THE BOOK CLUB PLAY
by Herbert Paine - Jun 23, 2014

No doubt about it. The Book Club Play, written by Karen Zacarias and masterfully directed by Matthew Weiner, is an audience's delight and a tribute to the latter's commitment to socially relevant and provocative theatre. The ensemble is as good as it gets ~ a dream cast of dynamic and energetic actors who give fine definition to their roles. However, if there is a fault, it lies not in the stars but in the playwright whose message about culture and relationships gets diluted in this comedy of manners and cross-cutting themes. (more...)

BWW Reviews: BOSTON BALLET Triumphs at the Close of Its 50th Anniversary Season During First Ever Visit to the Big Apple
by Sondra Forsyth - Jul 3, 2014

On June 27th 2014 at the Koch Theatre in Lincoln Center during The Boston Ballet's first ever engagement in New York City, the company proved to be better than the New York City Ballet at dancing Balanchine. I know I'm not alone in holding that opinion because I overheard several people seated near me express the same sentiment during the enthusiastic Applause for Symphony in Three Movements. The principals and soloists were superb, but the corps de ballet was the true star of the show. In particular, the follow-up movements that flowed flawlessly down a long diagonal line of dancers were mesmerizing. Mr. B, who helped bestow the Ford Foundation funding that allowed E. Virginia Williams to found the company in 1963, would surely have been proud. (more...)
