Posted by John Fontaine

When we heard about the Bitcamp Hackathon at University of Maryland (April 4-6), we knew it was the perfect place for SocialRadar to test our API – which basically means exposing the data within our system to let other developers “piggyback” on our offerings.

University of Maryland (UMD) has a robust tradition in engineering, strong ties to DC and the university won Major League Hacking’s Fall 2013 trophy. As a bonus – one of the organizers, UMD junior Brent Bovenzi, joined SocialRadar as an intern and is now a developer with our team. We knew this event would be a good opportunity to meet other bright, social students like Brent.
