I lived in Providence, RI during the summer of 2010 and helped found DataBraid. DataBraid’s goal is to make science simpler by making scientific data analysis simpler and more accessible to those without programming knowledge.
Our first product, BraidLab is a web application that wishes to do for statistics what Google Docs did for word processing. It’s a collaborative application that allows researchers to share their data and analyses with coworkers.
My main tasks were web design and application development. We used Ruby on Rails as the application layer and jQuery for many of the interactive elements.
