Catching up with CODE winner Carlos Saavedra

A lot has happened since Carlos Saavedra and his partner Jason Ernst took the grand prize at the Canadian Open Data Experience (CODE) hackathon last year. Here is what he's been doing, and how the app has evolved.

The hour of code

It was a "mind-blowing experience" as our grade 4 class, along with three other classes from Bedford Public School, participated in the Hour of Code on December 8th at the University of Waterloo's Stratford Campus. The event kicked off the week long celebration of Computer Science Education week. The Hour of Code is a global movement aimed at demystifying computer science. We joined tens of millions of students in 180 countries to write our first few lines of code. 

BIG DATA

Digital Media A-Z: Big Data

2.76 million people ride the TTC daily. 38% of customers abandoned online shopping carts when delivery estimates exceeded 7 days. Facebook posts that include 'should', 'would', and 'who' get the most comments; posts that include 'why' and 'how' get the least comments. 3.2 million vinyl records were sold in 2012. Every two days we create as much data as we did from the dawn of civilization until 2003.

We are living in a sea of data. Whether we're swimming or drowning is a matter of opinion. 

Electric Sheep takes home top prize at the Canadian Open Data Experience

The vastness of the Canadian landscape has long been a subject for explorers, artists and poets. But for new Canadians looking to move here, it can present a myriad of choices that can seem overwhelming.

Until now.
