Celerity to Develop Social Media Application for Carnegie Mellon University
PITTSBURGH, PA – Celerity recently won a project to develop a ground-breaking social networking platform for educators and researchers to connect, share ideas and bring innovative concepts to life.
Funded by the Gates and MacArthur Foundations, the site—Working Examples—will enable educators, researchers, designers and developers to come together to collaborate on projects that intersect learning and technology.
User experience (UX) designers, developers and business analysts will work with the client to build the website application using an agile development approach. Celerity’s development team will use Groovy on Grails programming language to complete the site on an aggressive timeframe, while creating an admin utility, CMS capabilities and other required functionality. The site will be presented at the MacArthur Foundation's Digital Media and Learning Conference in March 2013.
"We're really excited to be working with Celerity. They brought us a team with a great deal of breadth, which should really help in making this project a success,” said Anna Roberts, the Director of Working Examples.
The project is housed in Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) Entertainment Technology Center (ETC) in Pittsburgh, PA.
