We are excited to announce our sponsorship of the 2017 MetroParks Hackathon scheduled April 14th and 15th in Tacoma, WA. If your interested in attending, sponsoring or helping to mentor teams please visit MetroParks Star Center for all the details.

Q: What is a Hackathon?
A: An event focused on computer programming that is typically held over a 2-day period. Teams are formed to create code with the goal of solving a specific problem in a unique way.

You can help to identify new, innovative and fun ways to connect people to parks and open spaces. We’re looking for ideas and solutions from energetic, imaginative people. Come to the event to brainstorm, build a mobile app or an interactive map, craft an amazing game, visualize our operations data in ways we’ve never imagined, meet amazing people and most importantly have fun doing something to benefit the community.

Great ideas will be considered for further development.

In a study released by Washington State we get a good look, and stark reminder that furnishing public records is expensive and often cumbersome. The freedom of information act affects all public organization, from small towns to large state agencies with thousands of employees. This is important work. Transparency is indispensable to democracy, now more than ever.

Fulfilling public records requests cost Washington’s state and local governments more than $60 million in the most recent year.

That’s a lot of money. An enormous amount of time spent by state employees furnishing requests for a lot of people.

  • For a quick glance, there’s a 2-pager published as well.

Over the last few month our team built a modern, user-friendly, lightweight and secure application that is supposed to help with that.

We recently sat down with the City of Tacoma to share the reasons we decided to relocate and expand our business in Tacoma.

Thanks to Ricardo Noguera and the staff at the Community and Economic Development department for including us as a local software business that is helping to grow the local economy.

Tacoma has long been known for an economy based largely on transportation, manufacturing, natural resources and private wealth management. More recently the City has been expanding the economic footprint to create opportunities that support the needs of private technology companies, wether its commercial space, well qualified staff or work life balance, you can find it all in Tacoma.

In terms of community we are very pleased with the cost of living, primary education and the consistent growth in entertainment, restaurant and leisure activities. It is a great place to raise families, with so much to do outside of work from the Point Defiance Zoo, Ruston Way Esplanade, Cheney Stadium, Theatre & Arts and much more.

If you are looking for a place to start, build or expand your technology company Tacoma should be on your shortlist.

We are seeing strong momentum as the number of retail stores and certified consultants grows each day to serve the needs of patients throughout Washington State. We want to remind retail store owners, employees and certified consultants that a wealth of information exists on the dedicated support site.

This release introduces several new features including full editing of form records, adding a new form type for linking records between forms, the ability to “undelete” a user. We have also included bug fixes and other improvements.

These relationships show up in the detail view of the record allowing you to discover the records that are linked together and easily manage adding and removing relationships as needed.
