Kotlin From The Trenches

November 10th, 2017 No comments

Kotlin from the trenches

In the last few years, the growth of hype around the Kotlin programming language has been about the same as that of the Bitcoin rate. This close attention was gingered up even more in May 2017, when Google declared official support of Kotlin for the development for Android. Of course, we couldn’t help joining the study of this topic and decided to experiment with Kotlin, using it in our new Android-based project.

SWING: Oldie But Goldie

November 2nd, 2017 No comments

No one’s talking Swing’s retirement – despite it being in its golden years. As you probably imagine, it is the most heavily used JAVA library for GUI creation. Which is well justified as Swing-based applications can be of any complexity and will look (and work!) the same when run on any OS. There’s, of course, a price to pay: as your application becomes more complex and accumulates lots of custom graphics, you’re bound to run into problems with performance and response speed.

How to Build a Successful iOS Application from Java Code in Two Months

January 12th, 2017 No comments

The challenge

Enjoy a challenge? Our mission in early Spring 2016 was to develop a live prototype of the OTC flex-options trading application in a very short space of time. Join the Devexperts Mobile Development team on a journey of discovery as we set to work at finding the ultimate solution.

In a not so distant past it used to be the norm to essentially perform all trading operations manually – with a phone in one hand and a spreadsheet with your positions in the other. The teams’ overall goal was to automate current workflow allowing traders to monitor their options portfolio on the fly and simultaneously analyse risks.

Phase one of this exciting project involved developing a desktop application and a mobile solution – iPad app. Working closely with designers and the UI/UX team to implement as much functionality as possible, the overall achievement of delivering this comprehensive product on time was impressive. The project started in early April and had to be completed by the designated date in late May – and not a single day later. In total, the team had only had 6-8 weeks pure development time. Read more…
