Peer-to-Peer Instant Messaging Using BLE with Xamarin and .NET Core


For my Senior Project at my University, my team and I are creating a Web Application for one of the local high schools.
It is being created using ASP.NET Core C# in Visual Studio Code.
There are many aspects to this project; however, the portion of this project that I am working on is creating a Peer-to-Peer messaging platform using Bluetooth Low Energy.
Users should be able to send messages to any device in the area currently using the Web App. I was looking up resources on how to do this but am completely lost.
As somebody who has been programming in C++ for the last 4/5 years, I am stuck. After doing some research, I saw that Xamarin has BLE Plugins, and to my understanding, Xamarin and .NET Core should be cross-compatible.

My question is, where do I begin? I am really not too sure on how to tackle this portion of the project. My knowledge of C# and .NET Core is fairly limited, so I am trying to figure out where to start, and how to proceed.

Any and all feedback is appreciated. Thank you!
