Chalkup Staff wrote this on Jan 14, 2016

This fall we began the search for computer science students who were hungry to apply their coding skills in a real-world setting. Fast-forward to 2016, and we’ve got a new team of bright, talented student coders helping us engineer the next great Chalkup feature.

Let’s introduce you to the 2016 Chalkup Dev Squad.
