The Game Agency
The Game Agency is a game development agency that focuses on building game-based solutions to solve a business's eLearning, mLearning, and instructor-led training needs. The company offers pre-built games through a do-it-yourself game configuration app.
TGA was looking for a software development partner that understood the eLearning industry and had experience building games. That is why their management team first approached our eLearning software development team.
The work we did
We assigned a team of two frontend engineers to work directly with TGA's lead engineer. The initial work consisted of building multiple financial literacy courses using a custom framework created by TGA's team, which our engineers quickly learned from scratch. It was an MVC framework built on top of Backbone.js.
We then began developing a number of these courses on that framework. We also built a number of reusable components within the courses that can change a course's design through an interactive and simple to use course builder. This makes it possible for non-technical people to create a fully robust course without having to code anything. Every day we participate in daily standup calls with their team to discuss the upcoming days' priorities and tasks. We debate the different approaches we could implement in order to complete a particular task, review code, fix bugs or find better ways to design something as a team.
