World Talk: How I Made a Mobile App for Tracking Blood Pressure Using Atlas Device Sync, Realm, and Xamarin.Forms

Data is everywhere. I recently saw a sheet showing the log of someone’s blood pressure and pulse readings and it got me thinking: Could this be made nicer than just a piece of paper or Excel spreadsheet? Could we build in ways to view trends/history over time? This is where my Blood Pressure Tracker app was born.

In this talk, I’ll show you the app and how I used the power of MongoDB from Atlas to Realm to Charts, combined with the cross-platform power of Xamarin.Forms to create an app to log and track this data. I will also discuss some fun future plans I have involving Apple’s HealthKit and more.

You will go away feeling inspired to do fun and powerful things with your data!
