You get a familiar-looking panel of available applications. Existing HTML5 apps are easily portable to the Carbyn system, in less than half an hour, according to Carbyn, and specialist apps can be created from scratch from a custom SDK.Features of Carbyn also include multitasking capabilities and app-to-app communications. In other words, applications can talk to one another.”We’re exposing an underlying file system messaging layer so that we have app to app communication. One app can tell, if it’s a phone app, let’s say, Skype can tell the music app, ‘hey, stop playing I’m getting a call,'” said Haidar.Also noted was how developers can port their HTML5 applications to Carbyn with litte effort. In fact, attracting developers was one of three goals that Haidar and Miller had in appearing at the show. Partnering with developers to tailor apps for Carbyn will be important to Carbyn’s growth. The second goal was getting the word out. “You don’t have to download anything, just go to the web site…we want to go nuts with this,” Haidar said in an interview at the show. The third was attracting money. Haidar said the team had been bootstrapping the startup since its founding and was now seeking funding.

Gupta MBA Earns Spot At The Super Bowl

first_imgGupta MBA Earns Spot At The Super Bowl Last Updated Apr 5, 2017 by Alanna ShafferFacebookTwitterLinkedinemail About the AuthorAlanna ShafferStaff Writer, covering MetroMBA’s news beat for Atlanta, Houston, and Dallas.View more posts by Alanna Shaffer Thanks to her strong business education from the University of Dallas – Satish and Yasmin Gupta College of Business , MBA graduate Kelly Jones was given the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend this years’ biggest sporting event: the Super Bowl.Kelly Jones, MBA ’15, was given the chance to attend the 2017 Super Bowl, which took place in early February at Houston’s NRG Stadium. The opportunity came about as a result of Jones’ employment with Legends Hospitality — the newest business partner of the Atlanta Falcons — but Jones believes it may also be a result of connections she made while at Gupta. “The connections I made through the MBA at UD proved extremely valuable to my career, because, honestly, without the guidance of Scott Wysong I wouldn’t be working for the Falcons today,” Jones commented.The string of events which ultimately led to Jones’ employment with the Falcons began after Wysong, Associate Professor of Management at Gupta and director of the MBA program, recommended that she attend a university career fair. The fair helped her land a job at the Dallas Stars before moving on to Atlanta.“Breaking into sports is hard,” Wysong said. “There are not a lot of jobs or a lot of people who want to work in that industry. I always encouraged our MBA students to volunteer, intern or do whatever they can to get their foot in the door.”With Wysong’s encouragement, Jones was able to get her foot in the door. Today she serves as a premium sales consultant with Legends Hospitality, a company which manages ticket sales for the Atlanta Falcons. Her job involves selling personal seat licenses (PSL) inside Mercedes-Benz Stadium to those who currently hold season tickets for the Falcon’s old stadium, the Georgia Dome. PSL Sales have been on the rise as the Falcons have worked their way to their second-ever Super Bowl, despite being on the losing-end of an infamous collapse to the New England Patriots.center_img RelatedJones Students Compete for Startup MoneyThe Jesse H.
