Last weekend, I was fortunate to be given some slots to manage during the PIKOM Fair, at the MCMC’s booth. I had eight slots and among that I invited to speak was friends from JOMWEB community.
I make sure that I have one slot reserved for Katsana GPS. Katsana is a product developed by Pixelated Sdn. Bhd. Their team comprises for fairly young dads I supposed. But they have developed an interesting solution for end-user car GPS tracking.
So far I know that their lead developer, Mior Muhammad Zaki is a top-notch PHP programmer, a top Github user, top contributor to the Laravel framework and also the creator of the Orchestra Platform. I also know that Katsana is developed with Orchestra Platform. Katsana also won a spot in the first round of the Teraju’s SUPERB grant, which gave them an extra RM500,000 in grants.
And I also know… hmm… wait! That’s pretty much it. So during the talk by Syed Ahmad Fuqaha, who is the CEO of Katsana, also a really tech- and business-savvy guy, I made sure that I paid attention.
