Olympic Body Match

 

I was the lead developer for the BBC Olympic Body Match, which takes your physical attributes and matches you to your three closest Olympian counterparts.

It went out in 21 different languages including Persian and Russian, and was consumed across BBC Sport, BBC News, the BBC Sport and News Apps, and the bbc.com ad-enabled equivalents, which each had their own requirements.

Delivering these to a tight, immovable deadline whilst supporting all browsers required careful planning, stakeholder management, following agile processes effectively, and considered pair programming and work delegation.
