Teams had just over two weeks to submit ideas for how to improve commuters’ day-to-day experience while using data samples from the TrafficCast API. They’ll present their ideas at the final event this Wednesday, June 27 in front of a panel of judges (and supportive attendees!) to compete for the top prize and $10,000 in prize money.
Attend this free event to support our competitors. Plus, network in advance with like-minded individuals and share your own ideas for the future of the commute.
Below are the teams that will be competing. (Each will have 10 minutes to present their idea to a panel of five judges.)
- Siddharth Murarka, Kamesh Chilukuri and Tony Dejarnette
- Dominique Clarke
- Raghav Hardas
- Meghan Kelly
- Dorcas Olatunji
- Katrice Williams-Dredden
Our judges will review each presentation along with the outlined criteria and select our winners by the end of the event. Our five judges will be:
- Idris Abdul-Zahir, IT Manager, City of Philadelphia
- Mike Balcerzak, UX Architect, ArcWeb Technologies
- Gil Edwards, Head of Product Strategy, TrafficCast
- Tyrell Hoxter, Front End Developer, Comcast SNP-NetIQ Team

There will be complimentary drinks and snacks for those in attendance while you sit and enjoy the presentations.
