VRT Mobile Development Team

Native Android & iOS for VRT's Digital Production Center

About the team

VRT, our national public-service broadcaster, has a good thing going on in the world of digital media. VRTs Digital Production Center (DPC) works closely with several internal brand managers to deliver great digital products like deredactie.be, stubru.be and radioplus.be.

With a strong web presence already in place, VRT felt the need to expand their mobile presence, thus catering to the needs of an ever-growing mobile audience. As a result, VRTs mobile development team was born, a team of mobile experts who’s goal it is to set up a mature mobile development factory within the DPC and start producing state-of-the-art mobile applications.

 

AppFoundry is proud to have been invited by VRT to help realize this goal. Together with VRTs own people, our mobile experts have successfully translated and applied VRTs high development standards to a mobile software factory.

Modern development mantras such as ‘Scrum’, ‘Test Driven Development’ and ‘Continuous Delivery’ together with a strong mobile architecture soon resulted in a successful release of the ‘deredactie.be’ app for iOS & Android. The app even got featured by Apple and quickly reached #1 in the top downloads.

Football fans were treated soon after with the ‘Sporza Football’ app. In this case, VRT has taken the MVP (Minimum Viable Product) approach, releasing a fully functional application with its core features as early as possible and afterwards, releasing updates and new functionality in subsequent release cycles.
