Overview

SIS are the leading provider of betting data and TV to high street bookmakers. In fact the big 5 own a large stake in SIS Holdings. If you've ever been into the bookies for a little flutter then you wil have seen both SIS data and images. SIS collected data track side which is sent back to a central data suite. Once the data is verified it sent on to the wider world. Some take this data as is while others, mainly the big 5, use the feed as a sort of base rate so do their own alterations before send this on.

Pride

This is without doubt the hardest domain I've worked in. The project had been canned twice before and had been runner for 5 years. The current team were in a state and, with the office relocation, leaving at a rate of knots. The contractors in place were not fit for purpose and so were replace outstanding engineers, Chris Herselman and Nap Catilio. We spent the next 2 year battling, refactoring, rethinking, coding, drinking beer and achieving something one else had. This wasn't the finest code base I've produced but it was best project in what we achieved. The real cherry on the cake was the team we handed the project to were second to none.
