Volvo Penta has commited to implement better connectivity functionality. Part of this was the release of Easy Connect. An app which lets boat users connect to their vessel via Bluetooth. I developed the proof-of-concept and then continued as one of the developers in getting this product to market. I was responsible for the initial requirement specification, choice of development platform and the continuous implementation of new features and bugfixes. We decided to develop the app in Xamarin to get cross platform (iOS and Android) with a shared code base. Looking back it was the right decision.
