Student software takes first
By Marissa Neeley
A group of students in the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business won first place for software called RedbirdQ at the Partners in Business Annual IT Student Showcase.
Shai McDonald, Lauren Johnson, John Johnson ll and Aaron Light’s software RedbirdQ is a branch off of their company, Redbird Metrics.
“RedbirdQ is a Google Chrome browser plugin that will allow an user to post to their varying social media accounts from anywhere on the web,” said McDonald, a junior majoring in management information systems. “It shows the best time to post in relation to your followers/friends to get the optimal attention for each post or tweet you create. There is also a calendar function that allows you to queue up posts to send throughout the week, month or year.”
