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.

I worked with Marty on and off for 2.5 years. He's one of the best designers I've ever worked with. Not only does he have great design skills, he also creates the code to make it run exactly as it should. Whether it's writing expert Actionscript, making databases work, figuring out how to code for Bebo, and much more. Marty's enthusiasm to do a good job is unfailing. He's a natural all rounder and a great communicator. Working with Marty was a pleasure. His fun and positive personality, plus talent and integrity - make him someone I'd recommend wholeheartedly!
