Cason Engineering Plc. provided a wide range of data collection and network monitoring technology solutions to the participants of the international energy, logistics and security market.
Cason provided wireless data monitoring solutions to the largest energy companies in the EMEA region. In 2013 we developed a new service aimed at gas distribution executives, providing a high-level picture of their operations.
It was a one year long project with a three person core team.
I wore three hats:
Companies from 7 countries launched pilots in the product’s first three months, including a gas distribution company in Calgary.
We used Scrum, an agile methodology. UX Design was an organic part of the delivery model, with wireframes scheduled a few sprints ahead and design iterations paced with the sprints.
1. Prototyping backlog items
2. Coding and shipping backlog items
I was the Tech Lead on the front-end and RESR API dev team
I architected this web application as a state-less hypermedia app whose flow was driven by server responses.
The business benefits were quicker rollout times, as no changes were needed on the front-end and a versatile, simple and highly reusable code base.
From a design standpoint it meant a highly modular approach.
Francis and I worked together for several years. He is one of those young talents, who is not only a great creative mind, a real creative thinker, but also hard-working, proactive, a real initiator, with meaningful content, who will never give up. I still remember well his design concepts, artistic touch on several projects we worked together for EMEA within IoT solutions. It is a real fond memory when we prepared for the Microsoft events, MS case studies, MS keynote speeches, MS partner presentations together.
