Hi Louis, Nice to meet your Team. Can you introduce Team Phoenix?
Hi, thanks for having us. The team consists of four University of Canterbury computer science students – myself, Janina (pronounced ‘Yanina’), Yugan, and Stephen.
We started off with some roles, and I guess I was titled ‘Project Manager’, but it really is a community process. We know our strengths and weaknesses, and we play to them.

Our Industry Mentor is Mike Darton, who is a contractor for Clarus and works with Microsoft technologies.
We’ve also had help from Carl Cerecke, who is a vehicle routing expert working for Telogis.
