Product and Technology Showcase

Join us for the first Tinderbox project showcase in the new Carbon Five space. We're excited to make use of the bigger venue and great setup for presentations.

Product and technology showcase:

Box2D Deathmatch - Alex Cruikshank, C5 resident mad-scientist.

Deathmatch is evolutionary simulation built using HTML5 technologies as an exercise in creative coding. Alex will be demonstrating the results of this application while discussing the motivations behind building it and some of the ideas and algorithms used to construct it. Tech: JavaScript, HTML5, Riak

 

How Test Driven Development started the Robot Apocalypse; Lessons learned using Twilio for Telephony - Rudy Jahchan, C5 Tech Lead

When a client approached us to build a call-center using the Twilio API we didn't realize how far we would push our "test-driven" philosophy. Join us as we explain how easy it was to go from simply using a library, to regularly running bots to actually dial our app to ensure its integrity. Tech: Twilio, Cucumber, Capybara

 

AutoScan: iOS Engine for Recognizing Credit Card Numbers - Louis Tran

To remove the inconvenience of having to type 15/16 numbers on a smartphone, I developed an OCR engine that would reads the numbers on the credit/debit cards. The use case would be for loading digital wallet (and to some extent mobile payment). Obtaining a high level of accuracy is the technical challenge and I share my approach to solving the challenge.

 

Doors open at 6p and the event will start at 6:30p.

Food and drinks will be provided.

    I was so glad I put this in my schedule. Cool people, great talks. Might be a while before I come to a future one, but I do hope that this continues.

    Can I present my product? Would love to hear feedback on the process we used to developer the device and educate others as well on what it's like to build a product from scratch as a PM at a corporate company (though my small team is agile). It's a fitness GPS watch with a web software ecosystem. Lots of lessons learned! http://www.magellangps.com/Products/Fitness

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
