Manage a Tenancy: Weeknotes w/c 28 May 2019

A short update this week. Hi – my name is David Durant, I’m the new Delivery Manager for Manage a Tenancy here at HackIT. I’m still getting up to speed with MaT (and everything else) but here’s my understanding of where we are.

The technical members of the team, alongside our partners Made Tech, continue to work hard to deploy the Initial Tenancy Visit service to the cloud. This is a good example of Hackney’s current complex mix of legacy technology which makes this job particularly difficult. All defects including in the MVP are now complete so hopefully we’ll get some extra assistance with the last of the AWS issues next week and be able to make this available to our users.

From next week we’ve moving on to the ETRA process for the Housing team. This is going involve a whole new way of working – developing the front-end in React and working via Behaviour / Test Driven Development. This is going to be a great opportunity for a number of team members to learn new skills. I’m looking forward to being able to show off how these methods improve our software development process.

Next week we have the Steering Group and our next show and tell. Hopefully there will also an opportunity to discuss stepping back to look across the whole of the tenancy management piece at Hackney and discussing what a holistic service / data / new technology based design might look like and how we might construct a longer term road map.

As an old boss of mine used to say, onwards! 🙂
