Last year I had the privilege of working on a project for Johns Hopkins University. It was a suite of web applications that provides hospitals with tools for performing predictive analysis in a variety of disaster scenarios. The project was grant funded and as such was very limited in the time and resources available. It was an exciting project with a real sense of purpose, and I was very proud of what we were able to achieve in a short amount of time.
My contact at the client emailed me recently to let me know that the response to the applications has been very positive, and also that we made the news. According to the article, the apps were supposed to be featured at the DHS’s University Centers of Excellence Innovation Showcase on Feb. 11 in Washington, D.C.
It was a challenging and rewarding project that has the potential to make a difference in the world. Those kinds of projects are rare, and I’m very happy to have been associated with it. It’s also rewarding that the app is getting some attention, because it’s nice to get noticed sometimes.
