These days, websites are required to work on phones and tablets as well as laptops. Making sure your web-based product works across a wide range of browsers and screen sizes can be a costly affair in terms of hardware. Open Device Lab Gent is a device testing lab, where you can test on loads of devices for free. This way you don't need to buy the expensive stuff, yet be sure all is working fine across different devices.
Drop us a mail/tweet and drop by! We are located downtown Gent, near the Dampoort railway station.
Have an old device you're not using anymore? Add it to our growing collection and help our community.
The open device lab is more than just devices. You can meet like-mind people and exchange ideas.
If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas
The lab is primary aimed at freelancers and small web bureaus. We welcome webdesigners, frontenders & web developers in testing
their websites on a bunch of devices. All devices are running Adobe Edge to enable this.
We're also allowing app developers to install apps on our devices with as main restriction: the devices need to be returned in original state.
Testing can be done on our premises.
If you want to take the devicelab to your own office, we'll charge a fee and request a warranty.
You're none of the above but are in urgent need of a devicelab? Contact us, and we'll see what is possible.
We have currently a limited set of devices, but are growing slowly. Don't hesitate to add your device to your collection. Sharing is caring.
