  • Besides Danny and I, you also have help from our Chief Architect, David and Director of DevOps, Mike. For B2 development and Backboard API, come see Danny, David, or me. If you’re interested in leveraging test driven development, please go see Mike.
  • In addition, we have our security experts on the floor. Stephanie, Franco, and Matt can answer any questions you have with regards to securing your building blocks.
  • So find us at hackspace. It’s going to be open all day.
  • And email us if you can’t find us. The email address is innovate-devcon@blackboard.com
  • Did we mention prizes?! YES, we are giving away up to 4 kindles to people with the best submissions.The judges will use the criteria of:InnovationImpact and potentialUser experienceQuality of demo

  • So to get started, the first thing you need to do is login to Course Sites, which looks just like this. Theinformation to get started and submit your work is there. If you have not signed up, please do so now. Once you do, the first thing you want to do is to review the information page. Then check out assignments.
