Jun Heider and Paige Crowley are members the Foodcaster team—one of three winners from the 2016 Go Code Colorado competition—and members of Foodcaster, LLC. Foodcaster helps food trucks find the best location to park by informing food truck owners of street sweeping days, the amount of foot traffic the area gets, and other beneficial tips through its mobile app. Foodcaster used state data sets about pedestrian foot traffic and cellular service data and combined this data with food truck parking regulations data, Google Maps, Twitter social data and Facebook events data.
