One of the things that gets me really excited is making the world a better place. As an engineer, I’m often in the mindset of automating as much as possible. But can we automate making the world a better place?
At Panorama, one of our core company values is to contribute to the communities we are a part of and in the spirit of this value, one of the goals of the engineering team this quarter is to further this culture of giving back to the community. As part of this goal, we are undertaking initiatives to get involved with the thriving local developer community in Boston.
We identified CodeAcross Boston 2015, a civic tech hackathon organized by Code for Boston, as a cool local developer event to attend; David, Geoffrey and I represented Panorama at the weekend-long hackathon. Our goals for this event were twofold: first, get acquainted with other developers around Boston, and second, hack on a project that we believed could benefit the people of the city.
