In 2007 I got my bachelor degree in applied informatics in Belgium. Immediately after, I started working at the company where I did my internship, AIM Productions. I liked the work and colleagues at the company too much to give up entirely for further studies, so I decided to combine the two. In 2009 I started studying for my master in Game and Media Technology at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and I graduated in 2012. Currently I'm a PhD student at the IT University of Copenhagen. As a member of the Pervasive Interaction Technology Lab (pIT Lab), I'm working on Next Generation Technologies for Global Software Development (NeXGSD) where I apply Activity-Based Computing (ABC) principles throughout the lifecycle of software development to improve tool integration and improve knowledge transfer between coworkers.

comment horizontal vs vertical tabs
@Phil That smashingmagazine link is very much oriented towards tabs as a means for navigation on websites. You can't generalize it's argumentations towards all use cases of tabs.

Any research to back this up?

comment horizontal vs vertical tabs
Any sources to back this up? I feel this is rather subjective, and I have some issues with the arguments you make as e.g. also mentioned in my comment on Emiliano Horcada's post.

Oh .. you are talking about those 'filing' cabinets? In my opinion that's a bad comparison. Filing cabinets don't simultaneously show content and tabs, they are just used to search through documents, then to take out the correct one.

comment horizontal vs vertical tabs
Could you give an example of 'as they usually are in real life' please? When I think of e.g. a binder with interspersed sheets indicating sections, they are very much vertical.

comment Are there any studies which investigate the usage of Caps-Lock?
Oh god ... that seems even worse than Caps Lock itself. :) But thanks for pointing that out. In Belgium (and I presume France) we have an 'Alt Gr' key to type any third possible characters which are printed on the keys.

comment Where can I find existing System Usability Scale (SUS) results to compare against?
Thanks! "then run your own SUS test on the competition using the same user pool". That's exactly what I started doing eventually yesterday. :)

comment Where can I find existing System Usability Scale (SUS) results to compare against?
I did find one resource, a paper which lists some mean scores in rough categories, of which GUI is one which has an average of 76.2 out of 250 studies. I was hoping to look for something more specific.
