Our very own Chief Data Scientist was invited to speak at Venture Cafe’s Thursday evening gathering last week. She spoke about her pet project, which Blackburn Labs is developing, called SpoonieDay.
Last week, Blackburn Labs was honored to have its CEO, Robert Blackburn, join the Developed Panel in Providence RI. Following that great event, the ACT Association invited Robert to join them in their monthly podcast, Tech Swamp.
At Blackburn Labs we have an impressive team of innovators, developers, and creators that know how to provide a realistic and effective solution to our clients. Our 3 core ideals are to innovate, architect, and build. Through our dedication to our values we have been named a top development firm in Rhode Island by Clutch! Additionally, we are listed on Clutch’s Providence app developers page as a top company. We are so proud of our accomplishment!
We’ve all seen it. Someone gets a shiny new project, they’ve gotten past all the bureaucracy and barriers, and they’ve gotten the team excited about this new adventure and ready to attack it with full vim and vigor. Then, they have to spend the next few days, weeks, or even months doing nothing but setting up servers, installing tools, and building the elements of the app that are simple commodity-features like signing in, account creation, data persistence, and push notifications, before they can actually get to the parts of the app that are unique and exciting. How anticlimactic!
Blackburn Labs is always looking for ways to help our community as well as encourage entrepreneurship. That is why we are so excited to announce that we are partnering with crafting and lifestyle influencer Simple September to create a business calculator for crafting entrepreneurs!
Being based in Rhode Island positions Blackburn Labs to better serve you.
First, RI is very proactive in supporting their technology companies with their many great programs and organizations. For example, as a software company in Providence, we are able to be members of great RI organizations like the Tech Collective. They offer dozens of excellent programs, trainings, and workshops. It’s through them our team becomes certified scrum masters. As Allyson Cote, COO and co-founder of Maternova, recently told Rhode Island Inno, “Providence has the good fortune to be home to many incubators, accelerators, and possesses an entrepreneurial spirit like few cities can boast.”
Scrum has been a mainstay within software development for the last two decades when it was originally codified. Largely considered a type of agile, which was coined in the 70s, most modern software projects depend on this interactive and collaborative model for building stable, scalable, and innovative software
It’s always great to see Blackburn Labs in the news. When our applications get featured in news segments, like the app for Brigham & Women’s Hospital was, it is very exciting and validating of our hard work. This time, not only was our work discussed in the news, our owner, Robert Blackburn, was interviewed by Providence Business News.
In this article, we’d like to cover “Curved Animations” using the CurvedAnimation class. The CurvedAnimation class allows you to apply a non-linear Curve to an animation.
