ParkJockey founder and CEO, Umut Tekin, is at it again – spreading the word about ParkJockey! Previously on prime time morning TV with CNBC, this time, he’s speaking with Axel Threlfall of Reuters on the Road. In this interview, Umut gives a great explanation on how ParkJockey uses predictive analytics to provide more intelligent parking spot recommendations to its users. He also gives some insight into ParkJockey’s larger plans. Check out the full interview below or click here.
Earlier this week, our very own CTO, Philippe Saint-Just, was interviewed by Mobile Entertainment (ME), along with other thought-leaders in the mobile community. This is the second time ParkJockey has been featured here, the first being given the crown of App of the Day.
The topic of this was, ‘Apple’s introduction of iOS8’. Here were his thoughts:
“The updates to notifications, widgets and lock screen apps will increase the fluidity of information and reduce the number of steps required to take action – ultimately, translating to better user engagement.
Since some of these features already exist on Android, this will allow app developers to align the products more closely on iOS and Android platforms. We also look very positively on the introduction of Swift. By reducing the learning curve for developers and allowing them to focus less on low level programming and more on feature development, we expect to see drops in costs and shorter development cycles.”
The Pride Parade is a major event in Chicago. It started 43 years ago as an act of rebellion against harassment and discrimination. But today, it shows the unity of the LGBT citizens and enjoys support from the broader community. This year, there will be a lot more to celebrate; it is the first year where gay marriage has been legalized in Illinois and members of the U.S. Armed Forces can march openly with pride and without fear of being discharged.
The route of the parade will start at Montrose and Broadway, and end on Sheridan and Division going through Halsted and Belmont. If you are driving to the parade, finding parking is an obstacle. Fortunately, you are able to reserve your parking through ParkJockeywhich provides different parking facilities near the Pride Parade within walking distance, including 808 W. Addison.
ParkJockey and its employees are proud supporters of the Pride Week and advocate equal right for all citizens regardless of sexual orientation.
