Shopify is the leading cloud-based, multi-channel commerce platform designed for small and medium-sized businesses. Merchants can use the software to design, set up, and manage their stores across multiple sales channels, including web, mobile, social media, marketplaces, brick-and-mortar locations, and pop-up shops.


Code sharing at Transit

by Samuel Dionne, Transit

How does Transit go about doing an application available for both Android and iOS. Why we decided to go with native and what hurdles did we ran into while doing it. Should everybody be following our route and if not how to identify that we’re ready for code sharing. We’ll look at different approaches available today to code sharing and how they differ from one another.


Samuel started on mobile in 2009 at CGI where he worked for Yellow Pages on their BlackBerry internal app, then their mobile website, and finally moved on to do Android apps. He joined Transit in 2013 and is working on Android and backend services for them.
