BBC Red Button← Back to Portfolio View Project Online
Worked in the Connected Red Button team at the BBC – a very agile team that encourages practices such as pair programming, code reviews, TDD, and BDD.
The Connected Red Button is a service from the BBC that brings TV, online and BBC iPlayer together in the simplest way possible on the living room TV. It offers a world of additional programmes and features without having to leave the current programme.
During the CRB Coexistence project, I was influential in the delivery of the feature across multiple platforms, from the initial design to helping the QA team. It was a great challenge due the time constraints and the involved changes of many different components. I participated in the development, design and planning of every single task related to this work. I created two MHEG tools that helped test and provided validation for broadcast changes, and it still used to verify persistent storage on broadcast devices. During rollouts, I improved the monitoring tools, and the system alerts to provide quicker / better feedback.
