Zenon Hannick, Product Owner, Comic Relief
An independent consultant with over ten years of practice at delivering software under a variety of labels. Having worked in investment management and selling ringtones to kids he is now improving his karma by working at Comic Relief. A highlight of his time there has been building and running an agile team to deliver the fundraising and events management platform for Sport Relief 2012.
For Red Nose Day 2013 Zenon ran the team that was building Comic Relief’s new On The Night donations platform which has a web front end and a call centre application used by 15,000 call centre volunteers. It was built using a distributed, eventually consistent model utilising a PaaS to allow multiple layers of redundancy and a mix of IaaS providers. The application took a large proportion of the £93,968,291 raised so far by the british public for Red Nose Day 2013.
