Inventive students use Code42’s SharePlan API technology to fuel web application development
MINNEAPOLIS, MN – Apr. 21, 2014 – /BackupReview.info/ – Code42, developer of award-winning endpoint data protection and management solutions for consumers, businesses and the enterprise, today honored the winners of the “Spring 2014 Convergence Innovation Competition (CIC),” an innovation competition for Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech) students. Code42 joined other industry leaders to provide students with mentorship and resources throughout the semester-long contest.
To compete in the CIC, Georgia Tech students worked in small teams to develop applications across four categories: Connected Work, Connected Home, Connected Transportation and Connected Communities. A number of the student teams leveraged Code42’s SharePlan application programming interface (API) to build innovative, commercially viable technology solutions. SharePlan—a highly secure enterprise file sync and share solution—features an open API, which developers use to create customized integrations. Applications built on SharePlan’s API—like those developed by CIC competitors—harness the power of the API to integrate with other enterprise applications, automate bulk processes, and simplify complex, time-consuming development tasks.
“Participating in CIC is an excellent opportunity for our students to gain real-world experience building technology applications to improve the way we work and live,” said Russ Clark, associate director at the Georgia Tech Research Operations Center, which produces the CIC. “We’re thrilled to partner with Code42 and thankful for their support and involvement as our students prepare to enter the workforce.”
Throughout the semester, Code42 led SharePlan API knowledge transfer sessions to support the teams as they planned and built their applications. On April 15, 2014, students participated in a live showcase of their products to a panel of judges comprised of Georgia Tech faculty and program sponsors, including Code42 executives.
The 2014 winners, by category, are:
Winners of the Spring 2014 CIC were recognized during the Georgia Tech Innovation Showcase on April 16.
“Supporting student ideas and creativity at a top-tier engineering university like Georgia Tech is part of Code42’s commitment to engage young people and lead the next wave of technology innovation,” said Matthew Dornquast, co-founder and chief executive officer of Code42. “The CIC program successfully combines big thinking with powerful technology to build tomorrow’s applications for work and home.”
In addition to working with Code42 for this semester’s CIC program, Georgia Tech is a long-time partner of Code42, engaging on various technology initiatives.
