FITAPP is a GPS-based sports tracking app which besides tracking activities such as running and cycling lets user engage with each other through a global activity feed.
I was in charge of Android development at FITAPP from 2017 until 2019. During that time I introduced tests and Kotlin into the legacy codebase and worked to make the app more robust and maintainable. To make feature and fix delivery more transparent and to aid the planning of releases I successfully introduced two-week sprints which result in feature releases, with in-between bugfix releases as needed.
During my time at FITAPP the app transitioned from a simple GPS tracking app to a small social network for sports enthusiasts, where they could share their tracked activities and engage with each other. To ensure the safety of the members on the platform we had reporting and moderation tools integrated into the platform from the beginning.
Besides my work on FITAPP’s Android client I contributed to our backend through implementation and API design and developed tools for internal use to ease monitoring and maintenance of our growing systems as well as customer support.
