Tell us about a project/task that you are particularly proud to have participated in and why?
IVIS re-development project and Bentley Software
IVIS re-development project was Don’s first project at a1-cbiss. The existing IVIS Software was running on the Windows platform; Don’s task was to re-write the software that works for android devices. Don initially found this quite challenging, as he did not have any previous experience with Xamarin Forms, but he relished the opportunity to learn about the MVVM architecture pattern and Xamarin while doing the project. Don’s second project, Bentley software, allowed him to develop his programming skills and knowledge further.
