The East Bay Ruby Meetup Group Message Board › Looking for ROR developer for Stanford Food Security project
|A former member||
Increased population, preference for meat, comptetition for biofuels, and climate change are triggering a global food crisis. We are exploring new technologies for connecting farmers and stakeholders to crop yield and calendar data across West Africa. We are building a web-app that will query crop yield models and serve this information through a webservice which can be linked to our mobile phone partners developing SMS software and a user interface accessible through the internet. This project needs to start immediately and includes opportunities to travel to West Africa.
