Endurance Horse Riding Application
One of the exciting projects we've been recently worked on is EIEV - application for endurance horse riding events.
Industry: Sports and entertainment
Client: Emirates International Endurance Village
Platforms: Mobile applications: Android, iOS
Duration: 4 months
Technologies: Node.js, MongoDB, Redis, Elasticsearch, WebSockets (socket.io), ReactNative
EIEV is an endurance horse riding application that allows users to see timing data of upcoming/live/past races held in Emirates International Endurance Village in Al Wathba, Abu Dhabi.
The requirement was to create an application that would process and represent the data in real time in a user-friendly and customizable way. Also, there were specific ways of data transferring, determined by the client’s possibilities, and the project should have been built around it.
The main challenge was a tight time restraint of the project due to the important event coming. So, the project should have been done and released in 4 months, including design, development and testing phases - and 4 months is way less than an average estimation for such project scope.
We solved the challenge by picking the right technology, aka React Native, for the iOS and Android development – it helped to save a significant amount of time for the native front-end. As well we worked by agile project management approach during all work process. The intermediate results were corrected on the run to meet the client’s expectations.
The EIEV timing system is currently under the maintenance and support of Celadon team. New functional improvements and updates are in the process.
