Event: Our Experience Building OVEE on 12/6

Christian Nelson ·

We just wrapped up the first phase of a project for ITVS, the Independent Television Service, and want to share the experience. We built OVEE, the online video engagement experience, on a short schedule with a small team. OVEE is a highly-interactive application built using node.js, mongodb, and a slew of other new tools/frameworks.

Our talk is going to cover product design, process and technology. We want to share the whole experience of building a product, not just the technical details.

Product Design Topics

  • Design and development process
  • Usability testing
  • Prioritizing features to match a budget

Technical Topics

  • Overview of the architecture and technical stack (node.js, express, jade, socket.io, flash, etc)
  • Using development spikes to reduce technical risk
  • Testing node.js
  • Lessons learned

After our talk we’ll turn it around and open the floor for those in attendance to share their relevant experience, in 5-10 minute mini-talks.
