SportsHi React Native mobile app is a great example of a lifestyle-driven business concept. Founded by an after-hour rugby coach living in New York, the application allows the users (Coaches and Players) to schedule their training sessions and games as well as communicate with each other. This project is also a great example of both the lean approach and agile followed development.

While signing up, users must choose their role (Coach or Player), discipline, team, and School. The application is dedicated to the high school and university students that are practising such team sports as rugby, soccer, volleyball, or even track & field. The goal of the application is to coordinate their activities (some of them live in remote locations), share results, and plan ahead all of the activities.

SportsHi is a fruit of the collaboration between of a two teams living and working on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean. App founders were managing the project from their New York-based headquarters, while the development took place mainly in Merixstudio’s office in Poznań, Poland. The 6-hours difference was easily overcome by planning weekly meetups during East Coast morning hours (which corresponds to afternoons in Poland). The daily communication was crucial, as the founding team consisted of a CTO (tech lead), who was collaborating with our Frontend, Backend, and Quality Assurance specialists. In addition to that, the UX designer was overseeing the implementation of the design from the office located in the Big Apple.

The whole development process showcased a great advantage of React Native as a multi-platform, JavaScript-based technology, as well as Python/Django as a backend technology. With the development of the Django-fuelled backend running smoothly we were sure that this is the most optimal technology for the projects of such nature. Beyond that, the team worked with of Redux, Web Sockets, and Django REST framework to deliver the application that went live in the summer of 2018.
