WHO’S GETTING BUZZ

Wilmington-based SevOne, a network performance monitoring startup, was recently featured in the Boston Business Journal. According to the article, husband and wife Vess and Tanya Bakalov cofounded the company in 2005 and worked out of their Delaware garage until the startup began to grow. SevOne started small, but received a round of funding from Osage Venture Partners in Philadelphia and moved the business to Wilmington. Now, according to the BBJ report, the company has 400 employees and made $39.5 million in profit in 2013.

MUNI-Tech, which we’ve previously featured, is participating, this fall, in the DreamIt Ventures Philly program. MUNI-Tech recently announced via Twitter that it is contributing a weekly column to the Delaware Business Times while in the program. Look for John Kirk and Richard Prieto’s work here.

Last weekend, college students and JPMorgan employees took part in the Code for Good Challenge, a two-day competition that tasked teams of student hackers with providing technological solutions to real-world problems facing nonprofits. “Team 9” was the overall winner of #Code4Good, partnering up to create a technology-based solution for iMentor.

Beginning at 2 p.m. on Oct. 4, DelHack, a University of Delaware hackathon, kicks off. Organizers say it’s a time for a community of builders to put something together, with limited resources, in a small amount of time. During the event, students can develop their skills and abilities, work on tech projects or collaborate with others. The event ends at 2 p.m. on the following day.

We previously reported on Go Learn To Code, and The News Journal also recently featured a story on the program. Start It Up Delaware partnered with Go Learn To Code to provide a three-week online course to absolute beginners. Those interested in taking the inaugural online coding program this fall — which runs from Oct. 27 to Nov. 16 — can register, until Sept. 30, through a special Start It Up Delaware link.
