News From Devver and Occipital

Devver and Occipital (both TechStars 2008 teams) had two big announcements today.

devverFirst Devver (which I did a super awesome ‘weekend logo’ for) announced a $500,000 Series A led by O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures. I met the folks at O’Reilly at OSCON last year (hello Bryce). Two fantastic groups, excited to see them working together. Devver is tools for ruby hackers, allowing you to send you code up in the cloud to back up and run faster.

Occipital had their big improvement to their popular RedLaser application accepted into the app store.  It does real time scanning via your iphone.  Pretty slick, here is a video:

We had a drink on their rooftop deck downtown and watched this sunset go down.

    Thanks for the post, man. Glad you could make it to the deck to have a drink! We'll have to make a habit of it.

    Check out ShopSavvy (http://www.biggu.com/apps/shopsavvy-android/). Similar to the Red Laser solution for iPhone, but then for Android. Its fully functioning and works well. I know, it does nothing for you if you're on iPhone, but it shows that it can be done well with full functionality.
