Coderbits is a network for software developers and designers that automatically builds knowledge portfolios using 60+ data sources. Portfolios are built using source code, packages, designs, education, organizations, and much more. Our unique award system of 600+ badges and core trait scores is designed to be fun and encourage personal growth. We built coderbits by integrating with 60+ APIs using OAuth 1.0, 1.0a, and 2.0, JSON, XML, and DOM processing. The core stack is IIS and SQL Server 2012 running on Windows Server 2008 using C#, ASP.NET MVC, ASP.NET Web API, Entity Framework, and KnockoutJS.

Jrops was a weekend hackathon project for the Cisco CMX hackathon which won the “Most Relevant to Cisco” award. The event was based around making something that uses their MSE (Mobility Services Engine). Our team created Jrops which was a location aware message dropping system using device coordinates provided by the MSE. Our web application allowed users to create messages in physical locations that could only be read by others within range. Users could then pick up messages and drop them elsewhere. The demo application does not work since it is no longer hooked up to a MSE.
