Challenge
Global Rank Softwareentwicklung UG chose Bamboo Agile to deliver a mobile rankings app that required integration with multiple external API’s, including Steam, Google Places, and OpenStreetMap, and also real-time user tracking plus location search and storage over the entire OSM database.
Solution
Developing a special algorithm allowing to store the geodata and calculate rankings at any given time.
Implementing multiple optimizations and custom bypasses to the back-end part of the project (due to the algorithm being demanding to processing power).
Results
A complex project featuring back-end and mobile parts, highly informative and entertaining for the audience.
