Pete Goddard

Building software that matters

Centaur Media Plc

The Role

I led a team of 5 developers using Extreme Programming to deliver web presence in a consultancy-like environment

  • e-commerce ticketing application for what is now Marketing Week Live.
  • a bespoke content management system for the mad.co.uk subscription site.

These applications were written in ASP.NET/SQL server.

I also introduced the use of continuous integration using CruiseControl.NET
