Cosy

Smart heating, hot water and a cosy home

Cosy is a wireless home heating system.

Using the web app the 10,000 strong user base can control their heating and hotwater by setting schedules and ad hoc events.

Working in a full Agile environment I was responsible for all development including app architecture, UI build, data integration, unit testing and bug fixing,

I built the Cosy web app as a fully responsive application in AngularJS and Vanilla JavaScript. I also developed the complete UI using Bootstrap 3 and LESS. To setup all the test suites for the application I used Jasmine and Karma.

Finally I setup Gulp to run the tests and build both the production and development versions of the application.

I worked closely with embedded software engineers, cloud engineers and iOS/Android developers to help develop new endpoints and efficient workflows.

Key Successes
Successful re-design and restructuring of the original web app whilst maintaining a fully functioning and seamless integration with the old system architecture. Successful deployment delivered on time to the 10,000 user base with no disruption to existing services.

Joe Lees

I worked with Marty directly for six years, during that time he was a key member of the development team that he then went on to lead. Marty's grasp of web development technologies, coupled with his ability to talk clearly and concisely to clients and stakeholders, made him a valuable member of the team. Flexible to changing situations, Marty's warm management style was popular in the team, and he implemented new standards and processes that have been of great benefit. I would wholehearted recommend Marty for any development or technical management role.
