After 32 hours with no sleep, 8 cups of coffee, 14 power point versions, and a last minute demo completion, Grafight had reached Demo Day. This wonderful event, hosted by the Tech Garden, marked the end of a 12 week journey made by four teams.
Brand-Yourself.com- a one stop online presence makeover for job applicants.
Congruser- a universal service for celebrities to have one account name across social media sites, including sub-user-names for interns.
OpenQuad- a five pronged attack at creating a site for college students to get the most out of their college experience.
Grafight- an online game that allows users to upload hand drawn characters and watch them battle it out.
Grafight was up against some stiff competition but took home a $1,000 check for the best presentation voted by the audience. It was a great feeling and overall a great experience for everyone involved in the program.
Although this was the end of the official program, now is when the real work begins. After speaking interest at Demo Day, Grafight is currently ramping up development for our February 2010 release. We plan to stay hard at work in the TechGarden while hopefully making it to some classes this semester. We would also like to thank the TechGarden, their entire staff, all of our advisers and especially our coach John Liddy for making all of this happen. Thank you to our readers and followers for showing interest at such and early stage. If you haven’t already, make sure you sign up for the Alpha testing on the homepage. We cant wait to show you more of what we have been working on.
