Mentoring

Technical mentorship is a great option to put training in context. Classroom training is beneficial for providing broad knowledge, but can sometimes be distracting when you have a specific problem in front of you. On the other hand, fully outsourcing the project development can also present hidden costs associated with transferring the codebase back to your internal team for maintenance. Mentorship helps guarantee that your team has full ownership of the project from the beginning, and continuing past when the initial development is over.

Development

Developing a native mobile application for Android can be a bit challenging. Android has unique design and user paradigms that allow applications a much deeper level of integration with the system than most other platforms. To provide the best application experience possible, you need a developer who deeply understands Android’s nuances and can apply them to your project.

The Android platform has grown beyond the phone or tablet, to include Android Wear, Android TV and Chromecast. Users want to engage with application content across all of these screens. You need a developer who understands how all these devices work together to provide customer solutions that are seamless and ubiquitous across all these computing platforms.

As the Internet of Things (IoT) movement continues to gain momentum, mobile devices play a pivotal role in user’s engagement with the increasing number of smart devices surrounding them. We specialize in integrating Android applications with the technologies that bridge the user into the physical world:

  • Beacons and Physical Web
  • Bluetooth (LE)
  • USB Accessories
  • NFC
