Habitat Tracker at DigiTech 2012

Habitat Tracker won two awards at Florida State University’s Digitech 2012 open-house technology fair on March 30, 2012.

The William Johnston Building hosted three floors of student exhibits and information about FSU tech courses and degree programs for the full-day event. DigiTech celebrates the innovatives ways in which diverse departments across FSU have embraced computing and digital technology. It recognizes student achievements, acknowledges the efforts of faculty and departments, promotes collaborative opportunities, and encourages the growth of technology and computing across disciplines. The Tracker tech team was on board to demonstrate and discuss Habitat Tracker’s mobile app and online websites. Thanks to their efforts, Tracker won the Campus Choice Award for the most popular exhibit (decided by votes cast by event attendees). In addition, the project picked up an Excellence Award for best Software System (awarded to a complete software system including Web and mobile interfaces and a database application; judged on usefulness, user experience, visual design, and complexity).

The Tracker representatives at DigiTech 2012 included current students Aldo E. De La Paz, Nikunj Mehta, Chase Anderson, Gilberto Parada, and Andrés Ruiz, and alumnus Dale Smith. Dr. Paul F. Marty and Dr. Ian Douglas were in attendance as well.
