Presentation from QCon showcasing our work for Barclays Global Investors

Here’s a video featuring Eoin Woods, a software architect at Barclays Global Investors (BGI), talking about Apex, the new equities portfolio management system being built for the company’s well known active management group:


Cooper worked with closely with BGI users and developers for almost 2 years going from from concept to detailed design and well into construction.

Much of the talk is focused on the technical architecture of the system, but you get the first glimpse of the user interface at 23 minutes in. Around the hour mark he takes questions, the first of which is about interaction design.

We’re really excited about how it turned out, and a lot of credit and congratulations are due to the incredibly smart and talented folks at BGI.
