  2. 2. What is it?Gigabit is a web application that helps match up artists withpromoters in order to fill empty slots in concerts, by allowingartists to advertise exactly when they are free to play.
  3. 3. Why make it?1) To bring music promoters and artists together in order tostreamline the process of creating gigs and finding newmusical talent.2) To see if I want to pursue a career in development.3) To show off to prospective employers.
