Hello My name is David I am a designer in search of a backend end developer and UX designer. My idea is simple but desperately needed in urban environments especially in places like SF and NYC. My idea is fairly well mapped out and can hit the ground running once the Hackthon starts. My email is dtownsend90@gmail.com if interested please feel free to contact me.
We've got a great web project in mind with a gifted designer in tow and could use some extra dev muscle. The stack: CoffeeScript, AngularJS (maybe KnockoutJS), Jade templates, LESS, Grunt for rapid development, and Python for the back end. Ideally I plan on doing this with absolutely zero jQuery. Reply if this sounds fun to you. :)
Looking forward to the weekend. Really hope there's time to talk with some of the other teams! If want to make your iOS app accessible, feel free to reach out-- I'll find the time to help. Cheers! -- Justin @ Raizlabs
