IMG_0509With the help of Meredith Dutlinger,  who is a GIS specialist from Boulder County Parks and Open Space,  the Trailsy team compared renderings of Boulder County ArcGIS trails with those produced by Trailsy.  The team also worked on setting up a static website for their application.

The Fruit Rescue team has pivoted, deciding to use Meteor and React as their Javascript software platform.  Meteor is a good solution for future design decisions and will be easier for developers to come up to speed on.

The Permit Planning team reviewed wire frames developed by Amanda Lenz , who brings a wealth of  design and illustration experience to the team.  The team is involved with a wide range of technologies, including Meteor, Node.js, JavaScript, CartoDB, GIS, Facebook API, and MongoDB.

Geri and Suzi from our leadership team, along with Becky Boone will be attending the Code for America Summit in Oakland, California this week.  The conference brings together Code for America Brigades, governments and others interested in civic technology, to share information and learn about ways to support and improve their communities.  Becky will present a workshop on Civic Engagement, entitled Low Tech Ways to Expand Reach in Your Community.
