Rides list, obviously I need to upload more recent rides !!! Excellent excuse to ride my bike.
And the eye candy screen. Route on a map. Here Old la Honda. One of my favorite climbs in the Bay Area.
Well, that took me some time !. Very happy now that I was able to finally get my route drawing piece done. Like anything iOS it took me some time to actually make it work but it’s finally here. Not really a big deal for those experienced programmers but it’s a step in the right direction. Really looking forward to put it in front of people and get their opinion.
Not sure where I’ll go with it but I’d certainly explore my options. If you have any comments please speak up, I’d love to hear suggestions, thoughts, complaints, whatever.
The Strava API is really interesting to work with, lots of data available for us developers/cycling geeks. Now it’s time to add some routes to the app so that I’ve something else to show.
Now let’s go for more. The question remains what ????
So this week has been a busy one with many many meet ups to attend. SV iOS Developer on Monday where I learned about Data Couch DB, Simperium, ApiGee and Box. Wednesday was our own Appsterdam SF event where Matt talked about Incremental Stores, I have to learn much more about that. Today I went to the Next Sport Venture where I met even more people, entrepreneurs, VC’s, and people interested in sports, mostly NFL, MLB and NHL but it was good to know what others are doing mostly for fans but for athletes too.
And then this Friday and Saturday I’ll be attending yet another hackathon in Berkeley, this one about health so let’s see how the weekend goes.
So I made it into the TC Disrupt Hackathon midnight video.
I was so tired by that time. I’m glad I stayed that late, it was fun. For a peek at my 30 seconds of fame go here :
So I’m looking for a co founder for my app/website.
Elevator pitch: “match.com for athletes”.
Rational 1: It’s better to exercise with others than alone. We’ll find you a partner in your city.
Rational 2: It’s even better to exercise with people of your SAME level of fitness. We’ll find you someone that keeps up with you and goes at your own pace wether you run or cycle.
Result: Happier athletes. Better workouts. More fun.
If you are into Strava like I am you’ll know that tracking your performance data could be addictive. I’m trying to take it to the next level. But I’m not stopping there, think what could be done if we integrate Fitbit, MapMy Ride, Runkeeper and other into the mix.
Ping me if you’re interested.
Just found a couple of places here in the city for entrepreneurs, engineers & designers to hang out, code, design, assemble business cases, etc.
The first one is Wix Lounge and it’s a free co-working space sponsored by… (wait for it) ….Wix. I’ll be stopping by soon.
The other place is Startup House and incubator/hostel/co-working like place. I met a few tenants/guests/entrepreneurs yesterday at the AppsterdamSF event and it’s a very interesting concept. They are in SOMA and I’m meeting one of them later today, I hope I can check it out.
That’s all for now.
Very, very excited to be part of Appsterdam SF. It all started during WWDC’s week while attending one of the talks at StackMob HQ in SF. I got involved in organizing the SF Embassy and we have our first event on July 18th. All the mobile community are welcome !
