  • Using SQS to Create a Connected Workflow from Disconnected Systems

    We recently worked with a client that has a variety of hardware instruments generating loads of data that is consumed down the road by an assortment of software systems and applications. These software systems function independently (they don't need to communicate to do their job), but in a big picture view one system could be reliant on the results of another — it is a workflow with a lot of manual intervention. The dirty work to generate the data users care about was a distraction that we saw an opportunity to remove.

  • 16th Anniversary!

    I realize that this is a bit late, but as we all know, it’s been a crazy year! Despite this, we still want to pause and reflect back and celebrate that in 2020, we have now passed 16 years in business (January 27th, so we are actually almost at 16.5 years)! It’s hard to believe how quickly time races by, but Mike and I want to take a moment to reflect on where we’ve been and look ahead to what’s to come.

  • CR Tech Crawl 2019

    I always enjoy learning more about other businesses in the tech industry and had a chance to explore several during the CR Tech Crawl. Tech Crawl was created to be an evening of exploring different locations in major cities across Iowa while getting to know fellow Iowans in the industry. Last year the two largest metros of the state played host to a Tech Crawl in both Des Moines and Cedar Rapids.

  • Startup Weekend Iowa City 2019

    On the weekend of July 12th I attended Startup Weekend IC, a startup competition held at Merge. The event had three stages. In the first stage, participants pitched their ideas to the crowd and attempted to win a popular vote for their ideas. The six most popular pitches were chosen to continue into the second round. I pitched an idea for self-assembling furniture, but sensing the idea was overly ambitious, was happy it did not go on to the second round.

  • EntreFEST

    Community involvement has always been important to us. We embrace as many chances to share our experience as we can. One of these chances came in the form of a great local event that has been a huge catalyst for action in the Eastern Iowa community of entrepreneurs: EntreFEST 2019. As soon as we heard there was a new technology track added to the 2019 event, Mike Smith and I applied to be speakers.
