Project History
  • Planet of the Apps
    Delivered to a very demanding client a very high-quality product to reproduce video streaming for iPhone, iPad, and AppleTV.

    It was a very large team (60+ team members, including other managers).

    The project had a time-to-market constrain as well as a fixed budget.

    We succeeded delivering this project due to a constant focus on the client's goal and having very high qualified people on the team.

  • Video to 3D Model
    Successful delivery of an extremely technically challenging project at a time when the technology was not quite developed.

    We had to build our own frameworks and use a ton of math, to deliver an R&D product to create a 3D model of a massive scale object (building) from a video captured on an iPad 1.
    This was done for the R&D area of one of the best well-known architecture/engineering/construction/media/entertainment software corporations.

  • Personal Finance Social Network
    Successful delivery of a new product, coordinating the effort of large companies and a team of 70+ people, on time/budget.

    This was a joint venture between Microsoft and Citibank to create a personal finance social network in 2010. The product was reviewed in many magazines and articles, such as:
    http://finovate.com/citibank_microsoft_join_forces_with_bundle_a_personal_finance_site_with_a_data_bent/

    It used new modeling and graphic technologies at that time and was done under strict time and budget constraints with complete success.
