TrendsOnline Wins UR Boulder Tech Challenge! $20k will kickstart design and development in Spring
Woo hoo! Our newest project, TrendsOnline, won $20,000 in the UR Boulder Tech Challenge last…
We had a big turnout for project night this week, with seventeen civic innovators volunteering their time and talents. Welcome to the four new members – Jake Sutton from Polycom, Gene Skinner and Ryne Emory from Galvanize GSchool, and Dee Dahan! Also in attendance were two guests from the city and county of Boulder – Ron Pringle who manages the Open Data Program for the City of Boulder and Meredith Dutlinger, GIS Specialist for Boulder County Parks and Open Space. Thank you Ron and Meredith for all your assistance with our data needs!
The Trailsy team continues to collaborate with Jereme Monteau and Ryan Branciforte from Trailhead Labs. Trailhead Labs produces OuterSpatial, which defines much of the look and feel of the trailsy application. A special guest, Paul Crickard from the City of Albuquerque was in attendance via google hangouts. He is adding support for OpenTrails to Leaflet. Thanks to our longtime trailsy team members – Trevor, Mario and Sean, who have created an architecture that can support an evolving, responsive web application!
Ethan Welty, leader of the Fruit Rescue project has returned after several weeks of being off-the-grid. Welcome back, Ethan! A late freeze on Mother’s Day significantly reduced the amount of fruit on Boulder trees. According to Ethan, this will be a good year to focus on developing the fruit rescue application, rather than harvesting, (which it looks like the deer can handle)!
