Topic: “Mobile release evolution @XING”
Since 2011 XING develops iOS and Android apps in-house. During this 7 years we tried a lot of approaches and technologies. Especially the way how the apps are released to the end user was and is changing continuously. In this presentation, I would like to show the process of change of the release process from a few releases per year to a regular two-week release cycle for each platform. The challenge was to organize the efficient process after scaling of the mobile development at the company. Back in time only 1 team worked on both mobile apps. Today we have several asynchronously working contributor teams for every app in every release cycle.
