The Android Platform
Android is a mobile platform created and maintained by Google powering millions of devices from different manufacturers across the world. It provides high-level retro-compatibility and adapts to most modern UI and UX patterns by their Material Design Guidelines and components. The ecosystem of tools and libraries is huge given the health of the open source community worldwide. If you own, or want to kickoff a product business or service, you will most likely want an Android application to help meet your goals.

Why choose 47 Degrees?
Keeping up with new releases and enhancements for Android can be difficult. The ecosystem grows rapidly, and the plethora of devices running on Android increases over time, making development even more challenging. The abundance of new patterns, tools, and libraries, both official and unofficial, can cause codebases to struggle when it comes to testability and resilience.
Here are a few areas where our engineers can help:
Migrate from Java to Kotlin
While many companies have either migrated or began their migration already, there’s always legacy code that needs to be kept under control. Legacy means tech debt ultimately translates to resources your company could invest somewhere more profitable. By migrating legacy code to a language that’s more expressive, concise, and adaptable to modern tooling like Kotlin, you can alleviate many legacy problems and focus on what’s important for your business.
Enhance your development process from the inside
Our engineers seamlessly embed with your teams, and can help mentor your team on, and implement, best practices in the development process, like code modularization, testing, code reviews, automation, and continuous integration.
Our engineers are highly prepared to shortcut bureaucracy, communication, and delivery across the board. By taking full accountability for the product, participating in every required meeting to detect and shortcut communication issues where needed, and apply automation to bootstrap your development and code integrity pipelines using Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery.
Transition to Functional Programming
If you’re interested in taking advantage of the benefits that the Functional Programming paradigm provides, our team of experts have years of experience across a variety of different languages. Use FP to leverage determinism, predictability, and testability on your applications, strengthen your code boundaries, and to constrain responsibilities using the Arrow open source library.
Adopt new Android frameworks
We can assist with modernizing your application using newly introduced Android frameworks like the Jetpack suite.
Adapt your app to the newest UI/UX Material Design Guidelines
Material Design guidelines represent the official Google Android team’s proposal for UI and UX across the platform. Making apps that accurately follow the guidelines is not always easy. It requires extensive knowledge of available components, theming and styling, animations, transitions, and more to make everything fit together and achieve a concise and minimalistic result. 47 Degrees is lucky to have engineers who are highly-skilled with UI and UX patterns and will help make your app shine.
