Startup Weekend Ogden

We decided to take our team to Startup Weekend Ogden in November. According to http://ogden.startupweekend.org/, the event is described as follows:

“All Startup Weekend events follow the same basic model: anyone is welcome to pitch their startup idea and receive feedback from their peers. Teams organically form around the top ideas (as determined by popular vote) and then it’s a 54 hour frenzy of business model creation, coding, designing, and market validation. The weekends culminate with presentations in front of local entrepreneurial leaders with another opportunity for critical feedback.”

After giving a winning pitch, Mike led our team (which included some other awesome entrepreneurs) on a project/application that would be able to facilitate Bitcoin transfers for the banking industry.

Below is a pic of a brainstorming session with our group.IMG_0146

Pictured here are the Guru guys hard at work coding. These guys are incredible;  they did hardcore coding from morning to night the whole weekend! Good thing there was a constant flow of food and drinks provided by the event… IMG_0145-1

At the end of the weekend, we presented our working application! Its amazing what our team accomplished in just 54 hours. We took a concept, designed and built a system, received market validation and have a prototype to show. Go Team!IMG_0151

New Product Release

We have been working with School Improvement Network on enhancing their line of educational products for the last few months. They offer a wide range of tools for professional development and teacher training throughout the United States, Canada, and overseas.

School Improvement Network has just released an app we helped create for them which streamlines the process administrators go through to conduct teacher assessments in the classroom. Check it out here:

Coming soon from this partnership: a dynamic e-reader teachers can use to continue their professional development.

We created this app using Objective-C.

New mobile app – Vinny

We are excited to showcase a fantastic new mobile app we have helped develop. This app is still in beta but will be released soon!

Did you ever wonder what the dealer really paid for that car on the lot?

Check out Vinny, a new app that tells you the exact wholesale cost by simply scanning the VIN barcode. The creators of this idea put together a video highlighting how the new app works:

We created this app using PHP, Mongo DB datasource for Cakephp, and JQuery Mobile.

New Guru Technologies Website

We now have a new custom-designed website that we built in-house.  We hope to make our blog a great resource for technology best practices and useful articles on software development and IT Support.
