App Testing

Champlain Arts provides public beta testing for most of our apps including new versions and previews of new apps. Testing is conducted using Apple’s TestFlight which lets you install beta versions on your iOS device.

TestFlight-approved apps go through an Apple review (less extensive than for App Store-approved apps) so you know that basic functionality has been reviewed. If you’re a developer (or want to be a developer) this is a great way to be part of a development process to learn how it’s done.


Jesse Feiler has taught and written extensively on development with new technologies. His books cover iOS app development and technologies.

He also provides on-site training as well as personalized coaching for developers with particular emphasis on those who are new to the field (often making a transition from other career paths and other technologies).

App Management

Managing app development and maintenance is different from developing and managing older forms of software. Jesse started developing and managing mainframe software for clients such as Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Young & Rubicam, and The Johnson Company.

He made the transition from mainframes to personal computers and, with the advent of iPhone and iPad, to the iOS devices. He helps people transition from other forms of project management to development and management of mobile devices. 

He also helps people understand how it can cost tens of thousands of dollars to develop an app that is sold for one dollar — or even given away. With that understanding, you can see where you and your organization fit in this exciting world.


CCPA, GDPR: Privacy Updates that are on the way

California Consumer Privacy Act goes into effect January 1, 2020,  and the General Data Proterection Regulation in the EU is already in effect.

Joe and Jesse will talk about some of the issues including the good/bad/terrific/evil (take your pick) idea of having a nation-wide privacy act in the US. The Roundtable: Tuesday, August 20, 2019, 11:30 AM on WAMC.

Self-Publishing Today

Jesse joins Joe Donahue to talk about the self-publishing world today. Authors are taking publishing into their own hands using the self-publishing tools we now have. And (surprise, surprise!) this is what authors have been doing for a long, long time but the technology is changing.
