During the first few days of this December, over 1,000 civic technologists collaborated around the world during the Sanitation Hackathon. The Hackathon's mission was simple in words, but immense in potential impact: "to tackle leading sanitation challenges." Teams of developers joined to tackle various problem statements that threaten basic livelihood across the globe. Problem statements fell into one or more of seven categories (i.e. governance, handwashing, open defecation, rural, toilets, urban, and waste water).
Wicket Labs has come out of months of beta testing with its API monitoring and reporting product. The tool is designed to proactively catch API issues before issues lead to downtime in apps, sites, and systems. The live reports, called wickets, include easy to understand, color-coded scorecards.
