Facebook is shutting down Parse, so Team Git2S3 is using Scality S3 Server to create a private hosting alternative for the systems that will have to migrate from Parse. Other alternatives exist, but there is no alternative now for private hosting. Alex Bourne and Rauhmel Fox are using S3 Server and Seagate Kinetic drives to set up a secure private hosting server with encryption.
Alex Bourne is an exchange student from Australia, studying at San Francisco State University. He’s making the most of his time in San Francisco, scanning Eventbrite for Hackathons every Sunday to plan out his week. That’s how he found this one. An entrepreneur in addition to being a student, he has a web-based real estate transaction facilitation business: eEstate.co.
Alex met Rauhmel Fox at a Hackathon last week. The team worked, so they came to this one together. Rauhmel is missing from the photo because he stepped-out: he’s doing two simultaneous Hackathons this weekend.
