Device labs

Following the example of the communal Clearleft test lab in Brighton that I keep harping on about, a number of other locations are also sprouting shared device labs.

The London Device Lab has just been set up by Shaun Dunne at Mozilla’s Space.

The Malmö Open Device Lab should prove very handy for inhabitants of southern Sweden (and Copenhagen too—just a short train ride away).

Here’s the Exeter device library.

Cole Henley is looking for devices that could be contributed to a communal device lab in Frome in Somerset.

Want a communal testing lab for your town? Do it. It doesn’t matter how small it is initially; it will grow once your fellow developers come out of the woodwork and start contributing their devices.

I guarantee you that every web developer out there is thinking the same thing: “I don’t have enough devices to test on.”

Start a device lab. Get the word out. Tell me about it and I’ll shout it from the rooftops.

Share and enjoy.

Update: Here’s a new device lab in The Netherlands.
