Web Development in an Outsourced Age: How CALI Partnered with Bitovi to Rewrite A2J Author

Feedback form is now closed.
A2J Author was created by the CALI team in 2004 to provide a pro se litigant friendly front end for document assembly. It has been used more than 3.5 million times in the past 13 years. However, it was written in Flash, which has quickly been deprecated across the web. CALI partnered with Bitovi, a team of Javascript developers and UX designers, to revamp A2J Author as a web based authoring environment with its own internal document assembly tool.

This session will explore the process of integrating an outside development team into an existing software project. We'll explore how Bitovi used CanJS, a JavaScript architectural library, to move A2J Author away from a Flash code base, toward a more modular component based model that's easier to implement, re-use, and test. We'll talk about how we use tools like Github, Gitlab, Slack, Screenhero, Google Hangouts, and GoToMeeting to work with a team of developers all over the world and maintain a growing code base.
