This product-line is built on mobile app technology utilizing iOS, Android and Cloud technologies, which was new to AFL. To assist them in developing native mobile apps to complement the robust functionality of their equipment, they found the cross-platform capability they sought in Xamarin, and their partner Megsoft Consulting Inc.; a Software Delivery firm based in Odenton, Maryland to assist them in developing and bringing a product to market.
Megsoft leveraged an existing code base created by AFL engineers to evolve the existing prototype to a mature Xamarin Android application which powers AFL’s next generation, modular test platform.
Many Tools, Two Companies, One team.
AFL’s team was able to leverage their C#/.NET expertise to work in tandem with Megsoft in the joint development, thus cutting down on development time and critical time to market.
Megsoft’s experience of working from a remote setting allowed both companies to collaborate on a daily basis without the need for a co-located team. Utilizing the best of breed tools such as Slack, JIRA, Bitbucket, Raygun, HockeyApp and others made the process effective.
Xamarin apps share code across all platforms. By utilizing Xamarin we can build for iOS, Android, Windows and Mac with a single, shared C# codebase, using the same language, APIs and data structures on every platform. With Xamarin, we write your apps entirely in C#, sharing the same code on iOS, Android, Windows and Mac. The end result is a more efficient development process across multiple platforms.
