IntegriChain at Philly CODEFEST 2016

February 25, 2016   |   Miguel Guerreiro

IMG_0855Drexel University’s College of Computing & Informatics hosted its fourth Philly CODEFEST, a two-day coding competition to transform data into real-world solutions. IntegriChain was a huge part of the event by providing judges and mentors and by hosting a workshop to talk to the students about what technology companies are looking for in co-ops and employees. This is just another instance of our continued effort to promote Philadelphia-area technology, which is really starting to expand in the region.

We would like to congratulate everyone who won a prize including team Good Civilianship, who won the Grand Prize, the Student Grand Prize, and the Best User Interface Prize. Their project encouraged citizens to contribute to their community by reporting incidents, volunteer work, and general good citizen rewards in a type of social environment where they can see what their friends’ are also doing.

IMG_0863Team The Change in Pi took the Dean’s Innovation Award for their Line Sign project, which could determine someone’s wait time in line by monitoring the number of WiFi-enabled devices in a defined region. Team SeptaNotifier won the Best Hardware Hack by creating a Web app and Arduino pager combination to provide notifications when SEPTA buses are getting closer to a stop.

Listening to the energy and passion in the pitches from the hackathon participants, especially with the civic hackers who truly believe in what they were hacking for, is an experience that everyone should feel.
