Awards: HKJC wins Best Practice Awards 2012


This is a bit old already, and something I missed at the time the award was actually announced. My friend and former colleague Wacdany Rojas told me about the award a couple of weeks ago, and I want to post it here for posterity.

The Hong Kong Jockey Club won the Best Practice Awards 2012 in Usability and Simplicity with its ibu (Interactive Best for You), the world’s largest multi-touch entertainment table interface, which very proudly helped architect and build.

I worked on the Hong Kong Jockey Club’s Interactive Betting Table before moving to London. You can find the corresponding post here, which I published when the project became public. 

I was responsible for leading the backend implementation, and I had Wacdany working with me during that time. I eventually moved to London and I had to leave the project in Wac’s hands. He did an awesome job finishing the project and flying to Hong Kong to install and launch the system. He did such a good job, that he was later offered a position to move to Possible’s Singapore office to continue the work in other locations in Asia.

It is always nice to hear that your work was awarded. It is also true that amazing work, always comes from amazing teams. I’m proud to say I was part of this one.
