“Works on My Box”, a team comprised of Brian Priest, Clarence Davis, and Randy Nolen from Geocent, won the Code-A-Thon competition at the Charleston Defense Contractors Association’s sixth annual C5ISR Government and Industry Partnerships Summit on November 28, 2012. Eight teams presented mobile apps built during the competition’s 12-hour coding window.
Geocent’s app, “Team Locator,” allows the user to view other teams running the app as locations on a map. When the camera is turned on, icons show the locations of the other teams. The user can click on the points to get information about the team or the location.
“We wanted to pick something that would support people that are out there and are in mission critical situations,” said Brian Priest, one of the three Geocent coders who developed Team Locator.
