The Client

This is a food delivery mobile application that helps users seamlessly order food from their favorite restaurants and track delivery on-the-go. The platform connects restaurants with the delivery staff to enable contactless delivery at customers’ doorsteps.

The Challenge

The Challenge

This mobile app was platform-dependent, which restricted it from running in multiple operating environments. The developers had to make and ship various builds for various architectures and operating systems, which was highly cumbersome. Moreover, the app code was scattered, unstructured, and unorganized, which restricted the developers from building and deploying the app seamlessly.

The developers had to make and ship various builds for various architectures and operating systems, which was highly cumbersome. Moreover, the app code was scattered, unstructured, and unorganized, which restricted the developers from building and deploying the app seamlessly.

The Solution

The Solution

To overcome these challenges, we used AWS EC2 Mac Instances to build efficiently, package, and release the application. Also, we migrated Android builds from Linux-based Jenkins's integration tool to Mac-based Jenkins integration tool to make the app platform-independent. Moreover, we replaced SaaS service with CI/CD pipeline operations to reduce risks in each build, ensure standardization of processes, and facilitate greater agility.

Our tech team discussed ways to simplify the flow of billing information for customers. We also had to add a solution to process all bill payments without data loss. We noted down each point and started developing the app using the following techs:

We made the most of the Android SDK because of its pre-built libraries that speed up development and boost the UX. To link bank accounts to the app, we used the Plaid API. Plaid-powered apps are end-to-end encrypted. They store sensitive data like login credentials and OTPs via HTTPS connection that prevents fraud.

Results

By incorporating CI/CD pipelines and DevOps best practices, we could successfully ship the mobile app in a safer and more structured environment. The DevOps facilities helped us break silos and speed up modifications throughout automated testing and integrations. Leaner and more agile software development cycles helped us:

  • Minimize fragility of builds
  • Identify bugs/issues quickly
  • Spend less time maintaining scripts
  • On-board new functionalities faster
  • Maximize software quality
  • Improve code coverage with minimum defaults
  • Iterate consistently
  • Automate tasks and cut down on manual intervention
  • Slash software development costs significantly

In essence, we could pave the way for a more streamlined and faster software delivery process at cost-efficient rates. By implementing solid DevOps strategies, we could get greater visibility into each build and testing results, which helped us release a high-quality app with reduced vulnerabilities.

In this era of quicker software releases, it was essential for us to implement a development cycle that improves the delivery pipeline. We could ensure a faster and more stable release with automated processes and zero misconfiguration risks with this project.

Moreover, effective CI/CD operations helped our cross-functional teams collaborate seamlessly and efficiently.

Our team of experts did a fantastic job at rolling out a highly-performant, secure, scalable, and platform-agnostic app that promises improved user experience and reduced cloud spend.
