1X2 Network - Angular refresher for web development team

Background

1X2 Network, including its founding brand 1X2gaming, is a Brighton-based business supplying virtual sports, slots and casino games to the global gaming market that has grown fast in recent years.

The company was established in 2002 and continues to develop a variety of gaming products for a range of widely known gaming sites – releasing games for both 1X2gaming and Iron Dog Studio, as well as for their strategic partners.

With expansion on the agenda, and new hires coming through in a cluster, the company saw an opportunity to sharpen up on Angular by bringing a group together for a shared learning experience over three days.

The Challenge

1X2 Network’s in-house developers use Angular for many front-end projects, alongside native JavaScript for canvas-based games and the open-source Phaser HTML5 gaming framework.

Some in the team were very experienced in using Angular, and needed a refresher to pick up on the latest developments and techniques, while others knew it less well and were likely to benefit from an intensive primer learning alongside those with more experience.

This was also a chance for a large group, including newcomers, to get to know each other better at a time of expansion in the company – and to improve team-working along the way.

The Solution

Framework developed a three-day course based on 1X2 Network’s specific needs. It also flexed its training and reshaped the course in crucial ways once it started, in order to take account of the individual and collective training needs that emerged.

“It was this chance to pivot that really delivered exceptional value for us,” says Callan Heard, one of the senior developers at 1X2 who took the course.

“I remember distinctly how two points arose early on that weren’t meant to be covered. The trainer not only took it in his stride but creatively added new elements to the subsequent sessions – all in effort to take full account of the shift in scope.”

With ten developers on the course, this was a big investment for 1X2, adds Heard.

“When we originally approached Framework we had in mind that we would need four days, but once they’d scoped things out they said three was plenty, and explained how they would structure the time.”

Framework ran the course at 1X2’s offices in Brighton in the summer of 2018.

“It was definitely team-building, as well as giving us all a shared platform for future projects."
