Case Study: ZOLL Web Console

This post continues our series of interviews with users of Dojo. This time, we interview Eric W. Brown who led the technical team that created the ZOLL Web Console and ZOLL TBI Console during his days at ZOLL Medical (Eric is now with Iotopia Solutions). ZOLL is a resuscitation company known for its defibrillators. Its Web Console runs on its high-end mobile monitors and defibrillators and enables the device not just to stream waveform data live to browsers on desktops or mobile devices, but also to collect the streamed output from up to forty devices for a single display on a desktop browser. This makes it easier for nurses to monitor a whole ward of patients. The TBI Console helps provide additional information for emergency personnel treating traumatic brain injury patients and is displayed on a mobile device. So far as we know, these were among the first JavaScript-based medical products to receive FDA approval.

Q: How did you first learn about Dojo?

I’ve been using Dojo for years. Its Pythonesque “batteries-included” approach made it appealing for some internal mapping products I did at another company long ago back in the Dojo 0.4.1 days. I’ve been using it off and on for various projects since.

Case Study: Masternaut

This post continues our series of interviews with users of Dojo. This time, we interview Stéphane Le Choisnier of Masternaut.

Q: How did you first learn about Dojo?

A: At the beginning of our Connect application lifecycle (at the proof of concept stage), we were looking for a JavaScript toolkit or framework that could facilitate development of features with a good community supporting it and a roadmap for future enhancements. The context of our project was a distributed team shared between the UK and France, therefore, we needed a toolkit that encouraged people to adopt common coding practices; Dojo provides the toolkit to meet these goals.

When I started working on the project, Dojo had already been chosen. So far, nothing has pushed us to change our framework or toolkit.

Case Study: Philips Healthcare

Philips Healthcare recently released a new version of their Intellispace Cardiovascular platform. Philips has been using Dojo for several year to create user interfaces for various medical devices that allow technicians to work with scans of patients, including cardiovascular scans, neural scans, and general MRIs.

In addition to using many of the standard Dojo and Dijit best practices, along with dgrid, dstore, and dojox/charting, Philips has created many custom widgets including this timeline view showing the various scans for a patient over time.

Cardiology Timeline

This is not the type of application that most Dojo users will see in their everyday lives, and definitely not something that you can visit via a traditional URL. But it does show off the power that Dojo provides for building a wide variety of powerful application. And the next time you need a medical scan, Dojo may be part of the system that helps display this important information to you and your medical professionals!

Case study: Softeco Sismat (TELL ME Project, #3)

The large companies that use Dojo are widely known. This series features lesser known users of Dojo, and their stories. One year ago, we conducted a case study about the TELL ME project with Stefano Bianchi from Softeco Sismat, an ICT Italian company, and a follow-up post four months ago. Here we have followed with up Stefano to get an update on their progress with Dojo.

Case study: HPCC Systems

The large companies that use Dojo are widely known. This series features lesser known users of Dojo, and their stories. This time, we interview Gordon Smith from HPCC Systems, a subsidiary of LexisNexis RISK Solutions.

Q: How did you first learn about Dojo?

A: Through Google / Stack Overflow. I suspect my “discovery” of Dojo was a bit different to the norm, as prior to 2013 I had never really done any Web Development. Up until then I was predominantly a C++ Developer, some Java and a smattering of C#. Initially I wanted to knock together a single page proof of concept, consisting of a code editor (CodeMirror), a result view (HTML Table) and an “activity graph” (ActiveX Control) and wanted something that would handle the layout, resizing and ideally something with splitters – after a few searches online I found the Border Container Docs and away I went! Shortly after, I added a Tab Container and switched to using the basic Grid.
