Inheriting and building upon an existing system is always a challenge, especially when you are brought on in a specific capacity (in this case, as development support). However, working with talented teams across the board made this a manageable challenge. Generating user stories that were feature specific was relatively straightforward, but bug-reporting was a challenge given the nuanced nature of the site. Creating detailed pathways to replication during QA testing was essential in communicating these bugs to the development teams, and required a meticulous approach. Overall, this project served as a great learning experience in my project management career, and ES was happy to successfully play an integral role in AES’s development!
AES is up and running, and has grown their user base to over 30,000 users (as of Fall 2015). They have undergone some changes here and there, and are a great resource for anyone involved within the energy industry!
